Soundtracks by Marilyn Manson

Whilst most songs recorded for soundtracks also appear on the soundtrack album, a few do not. Many of the songs here are also on MM albums or on singles.

Film - [year] - Song

Natural Born Killers - [1994] - Cyclops.
Only a few seconds of the song, Cyclops, are used and it is not on the soundtrack album (which was produced by Trent Reznor). A theme of the film Natural Born Killers is America's glorification of violence, something that Marilyn would relate to.
