Marilyn Manson is not afraid to stand up for himself, but in doing so recently in Switzerland the rocker came out a little worse for wear. In fact, the musician needed 24 stitches to sew up part of his air after a brawl.

The entertainer who once released the track 'The Fight Song' did not go into detail about the scuffle, other than to reveal that the injury came about when he was struck with a glass table. Manson discussed the incident via Twitter and also included a photo of his ear after the procedure.

Manson has been touring through Europe along with Rob Zombie as part of the "Twins of Evil" tour. The rocker has enjoyed a career resurrection this past year, with the single 'No Reflection' and album 'Born Villain' both making the cut in the Loudwire Best Rock Songs and Best Rock Albums of 2012 lists.
