"The Nobodies"

"The Nobodies" is a song by American industrial rock band Marilyn Manson. It is the third and final single from their fourth studio album, Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death), released in 2000. The song addresses Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, perpetrators of the Columbine High School massacre in 1999. The song's title is from a quote by John Lennon's murderer, Mark David Chapman, who once lamented that he "felt like a nobody."[1]

As early as February 10, 2001, Manson had made indications that the song would be chosen as the album's third single.[2][3] The third single was released in physical format, on September 3, 2001, in the UK and, on October 6, 2001, in the US.[4][5][6]

A remixed version of the song would later appear in the 2001 Johnny Depp film From Hell.[7] Also, despite its usage of harsh vocals, the band has performed an acoustic version of the song.

In 2016 both the Holy Wood original and 2005 Against All Gods Mix versions of the song were used by TNA professional wrestling stable Decay (Abyss, Crazzy Steve, and Rosemary), the original version as arena entrance music and the Against All Gods Mix for taped music video vignettes.[citation needed]
