Marilyn Manson goes gold with ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ cover
For the soundtrack, Manson gave his haunting take on the classic track "This Is Halloween."
Gold certifications are offered to artists who manage to sell over 500,000 units which is quite a monumental achievement. The next stop for the song is Platinum certification which requires moving over 1 million units in total.
While it's strange the spooky Halloween track went gold in the middle of the year, we're more than happy to see Manson get another award!
