"Cryptorchid"

Cryptorchid is a song from Marilyn Manson's third full length album, Antichrist Superstar. It is the sixth track and while it was not a single for the band, "Cryptorchid" did reach No. 20 on the German music charts[citation needed] and a music video was produced for the song. The lyrics at the end of the song also appear in the middle of the song "Antichrist Superstar".

Music video

The music video for the song was directed by E. Elias Merhige and co-directed by Manson. In 1996, Merhige was contacted by Marilyn Manson in regards to producing a music video for "Cryptorchid", the day after he saw Merhige's experimental film Begotten. Manson and Merhige met in Los Angeles, California where they would produce the video. Merhige also expressed interest in filming a video for "Antichrist Superstar", which would subsequently be rejected by Interscope Records.

The "Cryptorchid" video uses scenes from Begotten, with new scenes filmed including Manson to replace the original entity depicted in the film. It was meant to be screened at live performances, during costume changes and intermissions, but this plan did not suffice because the band fell through payment for the projection on the Dead to the World Tour. The footage of death and decrepit things shot in fuzzy black and white gave way for its ban from MTV.
