Marilyn Manson’s 1995 EPSmells Like Children is one to remember. This platinum-certified album is best known for“Sweet Dreams(Are Made of This),” a song that was played across the world, accompanied by a memorable video watched that’s been watched by millions. It was an experimental album for the band and is a distinctive era for the band during the peak of the“Wiggins” events.
The album artwork, as described by Manson,“looks like children, but is not at all for children.” It reflects corrupted innocence, and channels abuse of many kinds, starkly complemented by the bright colors. This album is accredited to launching the band mainstream, an era-defining and genre-bending experience.
