Released: Jul 1992
Ministry found their metal in the late '80s, and within a few years their mechanistic shock tactics, noise terrorism and pissed-off perversion -- devoid of meaning and no worse for it -- were risking self-parody. Still, the big commercial breakthrough, for the band and industrial metal in general, was this 1992 album, which sold a million on the shoulders of two alt-rock hits, novelty-ish "Jesus Built My Hotrod" (featuring Butthole Surfer Gibby Hayes) and protest-ish "N.W.O." (ostensibly a blast at Bush the Elder) -- not to mention inspiration from Aleister Crowley and William Burroughs.
