Marilyn Manson and 10 Famous Members of the Church of Satan

This Saturday, July 19, marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Marilyn Manson’s debut album, ‘Portrait of an American Family.’ We’re counting down to that date this week and celebrating the Antichrist Superstar’s two decades of rock and shock.

In the mid '90s, Manson became a card-carrying member of the Church of Satan, which was formed in 1966 by Anton LaVey. He was even ordained as an honorary priest, which is why he's credited in the liner notes of the EP 'Smells Like Children' as Reverend Marilyn Manson.

But Manson is hardly the only celebrity to have joined the Church of Satan--and certainly not the most unlikely, as you'll see in the gallery below.
