Photo Shows What Marilyn Manson Looked Like As A Child

Shock-rocker Marilyn Manson turned 49 today, which is actually much younger than I thought, I assumed he was some sort of 1,000-year-old vampire or something.

But no, it wasn't always like this for Manson, whose real name is the slightly less interesting Brian Warner.

He wasn't always a goth (and, no, he also wasn't Paul Pfeiffer from The Wonder Years), in fact, back in the 1970s, he was pretty cute and not at all terrifying.

Check it out:

Manson shared the throwback snap in a touching tribute to his dad, Hugh, who died in July last year.

Earlier last year, he also shared a snap of his dad after undergoing a Marilyn Manson-style make over:

Amazing what a bit of eyeliner and lippie can do, eh?

Manson was pretty much unrecognisable when he was in Sons of Anarchy:

Quite the difference, isn't it? This is why you have to take Manson swimming on a first date.

And let's not forget the dodgy facial hair he grew for his role in Jawbreaker:

Or this behind-the-scenes photo of him while filming Salem:

The name Marilyn Manson came about by combining 'good' (Marilyn Monroe) and 'evil' (Charles Manson).

In his biography, Manson explained: "The balance between good and evil and the choices we make between them are probably the single most important aspects shaping our personalities and humanity...

"Marilyn Monroe had a dark side just as Charles Manson has a good, intelligent side."

Other band members had similar names, such as Gidget Gein (made up from fictional surfer girl Gidget and human-skin-wearer Ed Gein) and Madonna Wayne Gacy (a mash up between 'Like A Virgin' singer Madonna and killer clown John Wayne Gacy).

Happy birthday, Brian.
