Music video by Marilyn Manson performing Disposable Teens. (C) 2000 Nothing/Interscope Records
"Disposable Teens" is the first single from Marilyn Manson's fourth studio album Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death). The chorus borrows lyrically from the Beatles song, "Revolution." The lyrics describe the irony of teen rebellion in that teenagers who act violently in retaliation against parental and social authority eventually sell themselves out to adulthood and become the very authority they were revolting against, a theme that is very similar to Rebel Without a Cause. This is explained in the chorus: "You say you want a revolution, man, and I say that you're full of shit." The song borrows a quote from George Orwell's book Nineteen Eighty-Four, "Rebel from the waist down." The song also bears a strong resemblance to Manson's biggest hit, "The Beautiful People", from Antichrist Superstar.
