Marilyn Manson and Billy Corgan Cover “Girls Just Wanna to Have Fun”


Well, this is definitely one way to have your tour remembered for years to come.

During the Nashville date of their joint tour, Marilyn Manson was joined on stage by Billy Corgan for a cover of Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” While that might not seem so out of the ordinary (the song was originally supposed to be sung by a guy), the duo decided to take a religious turn in how it was covered.

Manson was onstage dressed as a preacher for his own song, “Antichrist Superstar,” when Corgan joined him on stage dressed up as a nun. That’s when they began to sing a cover of the hit 80s song with a twist. Instead of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” the changed the lyrics to “Nuns Just Wanna Have Fun.”

It’s not like we expected any less from the two of them. Check out the fan shot video below and try not to laugh at it.
