Texas Woman Claims Music of Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails Led Her to Burn Down Her Dad’s House

A Texas women who allegedly burned down her father’s house last week has said that she did it because the music of Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails told her that her parents were “Trying too kill her.” According to court files published in the El Paso Times, the music also informed her of her parent’s plans “to sodomize her and chop her up with the help of a neighbor.”

The bizarre claim comes from Christina Paz, 29, who allegedly poured flammable super glue onto a bed before lighting it and going to another room to set fire to curtains. Paz, who had broken into the house a few days prior, then grabbed her bags and walked outside to wait in the front yard. No one was hurt in the blaze.

Marilyn Manson, in particular, is no stranger to this kind of controversy. The Antichrist Superstar suffered a huge backlash after he was cited as an influence on the two students who opened fire at a Columbine high school in 1999.

    WHY THE fuck do people seem to blame music they listen too, you are your OWN person, the songs they sing are NOT directly sung at or for YOU!!! People need to fucking take up for their own personal problems and stop blaming shit on OTHERS or their music!!!!

    • Al

    Just because you have a soundtrack to the chaos you cause doesn’t mean it’s the music that causes it.  This broad was clearly off her rocker and could have very well burnt her parents house down will jamming with some Perry Cuomo or something. 

    • Drummerdude

      Yeah, definitely rockin’ off her rocker 

  • Gayfacebee

    How fucking stupid, what a dumb girl.

  • angrymetalhead

    Should we euthanize all the dogs because one told David Berkowitz to commit murder?  Unless this is the television show Eureka and a form of super auto suggestion got imbedded in this person’s iPod and made them “Burn(ing) Down the House” because The Talking Heads told them to do so…then I’m going with people are responsible for their own actions.

    That is not true…Both Dyland and Eric’s parents said that they weren’t that into Marilyn Manson.

    lol yea if that was true i would of burned down alot of houses by now after listening to them both for over 10 years that bitch is pyscho only idiots would take her seriously

  • Mr. Self Destruct

    NIN and MM are not bands you should listen to when you’re already batshit insane. Don’t get me wrong, they’re my two favorite bands in existence, but this bitch is a fucking moron to cite them as the reason she’s an insane bitch.

  • Ty

    Wow… Sure, they did. If that’s the case I should have burned down my whole city with all the NIN I’ve listened to :-   What she really listened to was her creepy, psychotic voice in her own head. Get some help.

  • Anonymous

    This woman should be facing extra charges based on this bull shit of a claim!

  • Predatorvip619

    People as a whole are fucking idiots. Maybe if you laid off the pcp or acid the music wouldn’t be talking to you lady. Ugh.

  • Pammy922

    no, no, no.. here we go again.. someone blaming music for the crap that they do.. no the bitch was psychotic, thats why she thought her parents and neighbor were plotting to kill her.. lol it has nothing to do with the music, if thats the case then everyone that listens to NIN and MM would have done the same if not worse.. lol give me a friggin break.. this shit better not hold up in court, because thats just ridiculous.

  • Spazzyspudz

    It’s their fault as much as the super glue company’s fault.

  • shadowhog

    Of course they are responsible.  Their music is known to be a clairvoyant medium of communication that foreshadows tragic events in our individual futures.  Just 2 years ago, I was listening to The Fight Song and it informed me that my fiance was cheating on me, so I dumped that whore and her baby back to her family’s miserable trailer where she will die penniless and alone.

    • Kraerae86

      you have just as many issues as the lady that started the fire if you think music makes us believe and do stuff..wtf

      • shadowhog

        I think you have issues if you can’t notice when someone’s being blatantly facetious.  Have you ever attended college?

    I must say thars funny shit

  • AuroraG

    People scare the shit out of me with the bull they spew out. She’s just trying to find someone to blame. The music didn’t make her do it, and it didn’t make her crazy. No one can “influence” you into doing this sort of stuff without your consent. Yes, manipulation can be powerful, but no one has power over your mind but you…i mean..you know, brainwashing, but…haha.

  • Lurine

    Ummm….I love NIN and Manson….they don’t make me want to punch someone in the face or cause any other harm…now Bieber on the other hand….lol

  • Danaz1984

    Wow another case of irresponsible people trying to blame someone else for their own stupidity and actions. Maybe they should have set themselves a blaze instead and rid the possibility of contaminating the rest of the gene pool with their ignorance.

  • PJ

    Shadowhog, just because artists like Cannibal Corpse, Slayer and Exodus write songs about killing people, doesn’t mean they literally want you to kill people. 
    So don’t take stuff like lyrics so literally!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_Q54GTUTIFQEWYKGNHEY3S34Y4M Scott

    and reading Romeo and Juliet makes people kill themselves 😛

  • Bruno Hébert-Brassard

    She’s idiote

  • Bruno Hébert-Brassard

    You should see a brain doctor :/

    • shadowhog

      I think you just need to attend school in general.  I didn’t think there would be anyone as genuinely oblivious as to be unable to discern the facetiousness in my comments.

  • Bruno Hébert-Brassard

    IMO Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Slipknot make me wanna kill people, people like themselves

  • Drummerguy

    Drugs are bad, mmmkay

    what the fuck the chick was burned out from the beginning,

  • FluffyMcPoop

    People! Music influences our actions every day of our lives! I can relate, I went to my friends mom’s house once, and Shania Twain told me to drop a massive loaf on the new leather couch.

  • Itsover42

    It must do Marilyn and Trent a world of good to know they can still influence the serial killers of back-wood southern America.  Well done, boys.  I’m gonna go listen to some Barbara Streisand and then have a dead gofer for dinner.  

  • Steven Bailey

    They can’t blame stuff on Ozzy or Judas Priest anymore. Christina, like the Columbine shooters, didn’t think about what they had planned. Not that I’m defending NIN or Manson. Kenneth Noid made the same claims, before he held a Domino’s Pizza store hostage, claiming the Noid commercials influenced his actions.

  • http://www.facebook.com/bigwheel104 Christopher John Olson

    should not learn to blame other peoples music, because the artists
    never really supported the fact that they would hurt with physical harm
    or even recommend physical harm to anyone they don’t know, WHICH ISN’T A
    REAL CRIME. So before those certain people, that don’t have ANY
    EXPERIENCE with different types of rock or metal, even BLAME these
    artists, they need to realize that what they say may contain a huge
    burden on themselves. Us metalheads see it as useless, because of how we
    respect the artists, BECAUSE THEY’RE ARTISTS, AND NOTHING MORE. I hope
    that paints an inspiring picture for you. m/
