Marilyn Manson Goes Goth-Country On Cover Of Outlaw Folk Classic ‘God’s Gonna Cut You Down’


Written by Laura English on October 18, 2019

Marilyn Manson has given us his unexpected take on an outlaw folk classic, ‘God’s Gonna Cut You Down’. The decade-spanning folk song has been recorded by a bunch of artists and with varying song titles.

‘God’s Gonna Cut You Down’ has been performed by the likes of folk-blues artists and civil rights activist Odetta, country rock legend Johnny Cash, and as ‘Run On’, Elvis Presely, among others. In 1999, a version of ‘Run On’ by Bill Landford & The Landfordairs was sampled heavily for Moby’s ‘Run On’.

Now, we have a Marilyn Manson rendition. This one definitely has Marilyn Manson’s goth sound but it’s still very Johnny Cash with all that lo-fi and dark, thematic production.

The new track has come with a very Marilyn Manson film clip as well. The clip sees him transport and bury a dead body, and is full of other general dark things like crosses and spooky shots.

Manson is also set to star in the upcoming miniseries adaptation of The Stand by Stephen King. He’s also apparently written music for the 10-episode series. You can read about it here.
