This is a part of Michael Moore's documentary 'Bowling for Columbine'. Here, he interviews rock singer Marilyn Manson, whose music was acused of being the major influence on the shooters. Please, view it to the end. (and NO, we won't take the background music off, because Youtube can remove this video if we do. By the way, it's "The Nobodies - acoustic version", by Manson)
"We're the nobodies
Wanted to be somebodies
When we're dead
They'll know just who we are"
The film explores what Moore suggests are the causes for the Columbine High School massacre and other acts of violence with guns. Moore focuses on the background and environment in which the massacre took place and some common public opinions and assumptions about related issues. The film looks into the nature of violence in the United States.
In Moore's discussions with various people including South Park co-creator Matt Stone, the National Rifle Association's then-president Charlton Heston, and musician Marilyn Manson he seeks to explain why the Columbine massacre occurred and why the United States has a high violent crime rate (especially crimes involving guns).
"I wouldn't say a single word to them. I would listen to what they have to say, and that's what no one did."
