Fuse Survey Says: Marilyn Manson is the Artist Most in Need of a “Queer Eye” Makeover, Iggy Pop is #1 Rocker Worthy of Retirement & Evanescense’s Amy Lee the Singer they’d Most Like to See Starring in a Home Sex Tape!

Tune in for the Full Results of Offbeat Viewers' Poll During a Special 2-Hour Episode of Fuse's Daily Metal Showcase, "Rockzilla"

(Premieres January 24 @ 3 PM ET)

January 21, 2004 – New York, NY – It appears that gothic attire, ghoulish makeup and freaky contact lenses are some of the items that are NOT in style this season – at least according to Fuse network's recent Rockzilla Viewers' Poll. According to the online survey of fans of Fuse's daily half-hour rock show, Marilyn Manson was chosen the artist to most need a makeover from "The Fab 5." In other poll results, lean punk rock godfather Iggy Pop was the #1 choice for who they thought should take an early retirement, while sexy Evanescene chanteuse Amy Lee was the sexy singer they'd most like to see starring in her own home sex tape!

The results of the poll, which asked twenty-three band related queries – from "Best Band" and "Sexiest Singer" to "Best Tattoos" and "Best Concert to Stage Dive," will be revealed during a special 2-hour edition of Fuse's Rockzilla on Saturday, January 24 at 3 PM ET (repeat January 25 @ 7 PM).

This revealing special will be hosted by Sully Erna and Shannon Larkin of Godsmack. The duo will kick back at Sully's NYC bar, Dorsia, to offer lively commentary on the categories and nominees. Sully and Shannon will introduce each artist and show a variety of clips from the nominees, including Foo Fighters, Linkin Park, Sum 41, Staind and, of course, the style-challenged Marilyn Manson.

Rockzilla, a half-hour show that airs on Fuse Network every Monday through Friday, spews forth a firebreath of rock videos from such artists as Godsmack, Disturbed and Sum 41.
