Say what you will about Marilyn Manson and his shock rocking ways, but the guy can can turn out a solid cover. His take on the Eurythmics classic “Sweet Dreams Are Made of This” earned him plenty of attention back in the ’90s. Now, Manson is at it again with his reinterpretation of The Lost Boys theme song “Cry Little Sister”.
After sharing the audio version two weeks ago, he’s now released its corresponding music video, helmed by Foo Fighters and Beyoncé director Bill Yukich. “A supernatural experience took place whilst making our film for ‘CRY LITTLE SISTER,’” Manson described on Instagram. “As always, @billyukich with his intimidations and enticements.” Personally, this writer finds the clip to contain more intimidations than enticements, as Manson is blanketed in neon lighting that makes him look 10x more devilish than usual.

Produced by frequent collaborator Tyler Bates, Manson’s “Cry Little Sister” cover was recorded for the upcoming X-Men spinoff film The New Mutants, which arrives Summer 2019. It’s also appeared on a number of Manson’s more recent setlists.
