Marilyn Manson celebrates his birthday today (January 5), and in recent years, the God of F*ck has greatly expanded his TV resume from actual acting roles to musical contributions.

Most recently, he offered up “Cupid Carries A Gun” from 2015’s The Pale Emperor to the WGN America series Salem.  Of course, Salem isn’t the only show to feature a badass rock song as its theme.  Here are eight rock songs that were also TV theme songs.
