Best Ministry Songs

The Top Ten

1 Jesus Built My Hotrod

Great musicians! And much more original than N.W.O. this song rules, no doubt. - gustavochavarria

Fast paced song good for road trips! Excellent voice (see: Butthole Surfers)

2 Thieves

Changed the game in the 90's! (I know it was released in 89) Politically inspired track that caused everyone to sweat!

Heard this song first on Brutal Legend on one of my favorite missions and it absolutely took me away! I wasn't even focusing on the game - PsychoSandman33

Excellent pace and perfect for driving fast!

I listen this song when I choose not to sleep! - hio

3 N.W.O.

Probably their best song, from album Psalm 69

Best song from Ministry

The best

4 Just One Fix

One of the best songs they've made. - NuMetalManiak

William S. Burroughs is in the video!

Top 5 for sure

5 Revenge

Gem from 1884 before the alteration.

I love a little bit from all eras of Ministry. Every album has a song, or songs, that I love. But I am in the minority who LOVES With Sympathy. It comes to personal taste, some come to Ministry for the Land of Rape of Honey to Psalm 69 era, some Filth Pig to Present, and some just all of it. Personally I love 80's alt/new wave/synth pop and metal. But this album I don't look at compared to their other material, I think of this as more of Ministry's Prototype. I look at it as a separate lost album. But I personally LOVE it for what it is worth, even if Uncle Al resents it. All comes to personal taste, but With Sympathy is a personal favorite album. Ministry just is great.

6 Effigy (I'm Not An)
7 So What

9 Supermanic Soul
10 Stigmata

There coolest song

The Contenders

11 Double Tap

Awesome fast paced song from Relapse. Absolutely my favorite since Jesus Built My Hotrod

12 Burning Inside

Fast song... nice :P

13 Corrosion

Cool song - definition of industrial metal!

14 Psalm 69

Amazing song should be top 10

Commentary on the dangers of blind faith. Also a sick, epic sounding song!

15 No W

This one's called No W! - Dorito

Song with intro Carmina Burana, and Bush speech at beginning

16 Never Believe

Favorite song on the album

17 Bad Blood

Angry as hell! Great song for an intense workout!

18 Every Day Is Halloween

Classic goth tune.

19 Scarecrow

Absolutely love the slow, sludgy pace of this song, I agree that it should be in the top 5 or at least the top 10

Should not have taken this amount of scrolling to find Scarecrow, should be top 5 at least

20 Khyber Pass

This is song makes my ears orgasm.

21 I Wanted to Tell Her
22 Permawar
23 Lava

The most underrated Ministry song by far. Should be top 5 easily. A lot of Ministry sounds the same but this song sticks out. Same solid industrial sound that Ministry is great at but still unique. No song sounds like this. It's awesome.

24 TV II
25 Rio Grande Blood

Love the George W Bush samples, awesome lyrics, and an in your face chorus, should be in top 10

26 Lieslieslies
27 Lay Lady Lay

For some reason every song played by ministry written by someone else... is beautiful

Really different cover of the Bob Dylan classic. It takes such a different turn with how they perform it but still retain the intimacy of the first version.

28 I'm Falling
29 All Day
30 Fear (Is Big Business)

This is what I call a "Perfect Song"!

31 Over the Shoulder
32 Same Old Madness
33 Should Have Known Better

A cool cut before the metal transition. Something sexy about this song!

34 Work for Love
35 The Missing
36 Filth Pig
37 The Land of Rape and Honey
38 Freefall
39 Breathe
40 Golden Dawn
41 Ghouldiggers
42 Senor Peligro
43 The Fall
44 What About Us

Song written for the A.I. soundtrack. They are the band playing in the woods at the robot destruction event. Certainly gets me fired up!

45 You Blocked Me On Facebook, Now You're Going to Die
46 Flashback

Amazing industrial metal song with a strong punk element

47 Overkill
48 Cold Life
49 He's Angry
