Assassins explores the history of presidential assassinations in America, ranging from well - known historic al figures such as John Wilkes Booth, John Hinckley, Jr., and Charles Manson groupie "Squeaky" Fromme to lesser known assassins and attempted assassins including Samuel Byck (attempted assassin of President Richard Nixon), Leon Czolgosz (assassin of President William McKinley), and Charles Guiteau (assassin of President James Garfield). Each presidential assassin is made to confront the fact that his or her act of meaningless violence failed to bring about the desired results while the musical style of each song reflects the historical period in which the individual "assassins" lived.
