    Sitting in traffic, working out and touring with Marilyn Manson all seem to have the same effect.

    They make you want to crank Antichrist Superstar, Manson's classic sophomore full-length. That's held very true for Mr. Kerry King. The Slayer guitarist has toured with Manson twice in the U.S. now, and right after he got off the road from Mayhem 2009, Antichrist was lighting up King's iPod.

    Slayer's Kerry King sat down with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino to discuss what's on his iPod in this exclusive interview.

    Check out Kerry's playlist below and be sure to grab Slayer's latest, World Painted Blood!

    Kerry King's Playlist:

    1. Slayer — World Painted Blood

    2. Marilyn Manson — Antichrist Superstar

    I've just been listening to our record actually. Before that, I went through another Manson phase because we just got done touring with him last summer. He's like a fucking virus, every time you hang out with him you just play his shit all the time [Laughs]. I go back to Superstar. I haven't been really listening to music, once our touring got postponed, I went into being-at-home mode. My wife's more of a person that needs to have music when she drives, whereas I'm just zoning out.
