Marilyn Manson Tune Added to the Opening Credits of 'Salem'

Courtesy Manson's Official Site
We recently reported that rocker Marilyn Manson would be a part of WGN America's supernatural drama, "Salem" and now we know how he'll contribute. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we've learned that Manson's song, “Cupid Carries a Gun” will be heard, starting this Sunday, as part of the new opening titles.

Regarding the addition of his song, Manson was quoted as saying, “The occult and witchcraft is so often used in cinema with a heinous disregard for even researching its origins. However, I liked the themes of 'Salem.' It looks at the witch trials without being cliche like most modern films.”

EW mentions that "Cupid Carries a Gun" was not only the final track finished for Manson’s new album, but it was co-written by "Salem" composer Tyler Bates. It sounds like a great song to open the brand new show. It's only one episode in and we'd love to hear your thoughts on "Salem."

Check out the opening featuring Manson's's actually pretty awesome:
