    Other than the one girl, I was pleasantly surprised by their reactions. One of them was even a Manson fan. I've seen people posting about this saying that "Maybe they just don't get it" or "'Normal people' don't understand Manson/Mansonites.". What the fuck ever. - lol - Considering that the kids in that video were born after 2000 would tell me that YEAH, it might seem a bit odd to them. Even though for the most part they were impressed by it to varying degrees.

    Millennials have a way of making everything that didn't come out yesterday seem unknown and old.

    Millennials are people born from the early 80's to the early 00's. That's a pretty huge range of people. It's pretty assuredly not synonymous with 'teen.' So your comment makes zero sense.

    The phenomenon of people viewing things that came out before they were born as 'old' is not exclusive to millennials. It's not exclusive to any generation. I think it's reasonable to say that every generation since the invention of modern bookkeeping has felt the same way. And I also think it's a reasonable way to feel. Marilyn Manson has been around for over 20 years. That doesn't exactly work out to new and groundbreaking. And Manson himself is a 50 year old guy who himself hasn't even been at the forefront of pop culture for almost 20 years. So how exactly are teenagers supposed to view him...? The same way they view Selena Gomez? Gimme a break.

    AND this is all being said without getting into the fact that this video isn't exactly the genuine reactions of a bunch of teenagers who decided to sit down and discover Marilyn Manson for the first time in 2017. It's a professional YouTube series. These kids are specifically selected and then narrowed down further still when deciding which ones to put in the video. And I doubt it's unlikely that they've been coached on what to generally say. My point is that your comment is silly and furthermore that using a video like this to form an opinion on teens or millennials is ridiculous.

    As i wrote in the comments, at least they were respectful to him and his art, even if it didn't appeal to them. I'm surprised as well.

    I almost thought that this video would never happen, but I'm certainly glad that it did, as it also actually turned out much better than I expected it to.

    I've always wanted to hear and see what people born in mid to late 1990s and 2000s thought of Marilyn Manson. I already don't know that many fans of Marilyn Manson in real life, but the youngest fans I've met were born in the very late 1980s to the early 1990s. The rest of them were born in the rest of the 1980s and late 1970s.

    That's not exactly the most commonly accepted range, just the broadest and most encompassing. Off the bat, the sociological idea of placing people into identifiable buckets of 'generations' is a tad ridiculous, considering, y'know, people are born every minute of every day. It's mostly of a 'pop culture era' thing used for convenience in pop-psychology. With that, having a min. in sociology, I can say there is really no consensus on the exact range of baby boomers, gen x, millennials, and what's currently called gen z. Usually they overlap, with the labels themselves typically referring to 'sweet spots' ranging about 15 or so years to define cultural eras. From all I've gathered, I'd say 'millennials' (when it comes to 'stereotypical millennial traits') are uuuusually placed at give or take about 1984-1997. Most of these 'teens react' videos are of kids who did not know a time when facebook and twitter didn't exist, something used as the dividing line between millennials and gen z. It boggles my brain to know there's girls born in 1999 being fisted anally on pornhub

    Eeeeeh I agree and disagree with this. The 'kids these days don't appreciate the past' sentiment has been around since the beginning of time, along with the dread of realizing the songs you listened to as a kid are now played on classic rock stations. Everything you said about Manson's place in time and culture is spot-on. However, the current media climate of rapid disposal and 'relevancy' is absolutely and solely unique to millennials and beyond. It's not so much about happening upon good music as it comes out and adding it to your collection, it's about the single of the weekend. What was hot a year ago might as well have been released 30 years ago. I'm a millennial I guess, and if I play a song released literally eight months ago, certain shitfucks will say 'why are you playing this? It's not even relevant,' as if that's the primary gauge for what makes music 'good.' The entire music business is about this now.

    That being said, I can copypaste that into the argument of Manson being 'old news.' Being a Manson fan, reading any comments section of anything Manson releases and seeing comments along the lines of 'This guy isn't even relevant anymore. He should just go away,' I can understand would be a tad frustrating. Not understanding something because it's 'old' and not from your time is one thing, but refusing to so much as acknowledge it on its own because it's not 'relevant' to your time is another.

    AS FOR THE VIDEO:

    I was quite intrigued by it. I never watch these react videos. I watched a few when they were first 'a thing,' and they seemed to be more or less 'hurpy durp look how stupid kids are for not understanding something that existed well before they did.'

    It was really interesting to me that over time, some of the kids went from finding the videos and music to be simply oogy-boogy shocking and off-putting, to understanding that something was there, and appreciating the artistry of the man, whether it was up their alley or not, and maybe even liking a bit of it. That always seemed to be my experience showing people videos and tunes from Manson. They develop an initial off-put impression, but then when they're forced or compelled to analyze it deeper, they eventually find something they can value in it.

    That being said, I'm still 'young,' ish, and for many years a very dark part of my imagination has wanted to round up into camps the kinds of young people who approach anything even microscopically outside their comfort bubble with an insufferably coddled attitude of 'oh my gooood, like whaaaat? Like, I can't eeeeeven.' It's like nails on a chalkboard to me x100. I was watching the first 2-3 mins of this video like the goth kids from South Park.

    That last sentiment also applies to anyone who watches worldstar.
