Music video by Marilyn Manson performing Lunchbox. (C) 1999 Nothing/Interscope Records
"Lunchbox" is the second single from Marilyn Manson's debut album, Portrait of an American Family.
In the credits of CD booklet from the Portrait of an American Family album, Lunchbox contains elements from the song "Fire" by The Crazy World of Arthur Brown.
Inspired by a piece of legislation dating back to 1972, which makes it illegal to have metal lunchboxes in schools due to children using their own lunchboxes as weapons, the song references Manson as a youngster who is pushed around by bullies; waiting for the day he can "grow up to be a big rock & roll star". Manson has stated that the song was inspired by the story of one of his heroes, Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe.
