Holy wooden, played in 2000, completes the trilogy that all started with Antichrist and Mechanical Animals. MM’s reasoning as to why Holy wooden is a backward of entirety of what he then begun is quite complicated. He stumbles on every one try to articulate an evidence in different interviews, as though to justify why he ended up in another reworked personality. “The album’s identify refers not only to the Hollywood signal, but in addition to the tree of information within the backyard of Eden, the wooden that Christ used to be crucified on, 132 M  Y C: A L A the wooden that Oswald’s rifle is made of and the wooden that such a lot of coffins are made up of. ”30 Jesus Christ, John Lennon, and John Kennedy have been the 3 innovative inspirations MM drew on for this functionality. He created one other metaphorical house, loss of life Valley “where the disenfranchised, the undesirable and the imperfect are, and Holy wooden is the place every thing that's held up as being nice and excellent exists. ”31 at the CD conceal of Holy wooden, he satirically looks crucified with a rose in his mouth, his face electronically pasted onto the Christ determine suspended in house, along with his jaw lacking, as though he were censored. often Holy wooden is an assault at the leisure in l. a. the place MM lives. however it is far greater than that: it truly is his solution to the Columbine tragedy.

The Columbine tragedy increases once again the cave in of personal wish and public fable that move “in a tradition during which addictive violence has develop into a collective spectacle” (Seltzer 253). special through conservative teams and the media, MM was once singled out early within the research while the 2 shooters have been speculated to be his enthusiasts (which used to be now not true).
