K ronomyth 6.1: APOCALYPSE NWO. Psalm 69 is Ministry’s finest hour, and “N.W.O.” perhaps their finest moment. It was a wake-up call that arrived months before the presidential election, alerting us to the dangers of the Bush administration’s plan for continued world subjugation through economic manipulation and calculated displays of military might. (Then again, we did invent Lik-M-Aid Fun Dip, so I guess it kind of evens out.) The song features samples from a George Hellraiser Bush speech (“a new world order”) and bits from Apocalypse Now (“it’s alright”). Say what you will about the USofA, at least we have the freedom to rock in this country (France and Mexico, I’m looking at you). Those who bought the single got “Fucked” (which would have belonged to the eggsucking side of Psalm if it had been invited) and an extended dance mix of “N.W.O.” that features a sharper attack and more voice samples.
