Supernaut is a fucking great track in the line with the great Singles by Acid Horse and PTP. The other tracks are jus noise not to mention any further.

.this thing has some big names on it - al jourgenson, trent reznor, jello biafra, bill rieflin, jeff newell....

however, it's really not that great. the first track is a sabbath cover; basically, it's reznor singing over ministry's rendition of the classic tune. it doesn't stray very far. you might as well listen to the real one....

the second track is an interesting satire, but it's musically.....well, it's nothing musically. it's just bill rieflin rocking out under some repetitive looped sampled guitars and basses. over top of this is a cop yelling at someone, and he's not being very nice. really, he's being an asshole. you're left with the impression "man, that cop sure was a redneck asshole". in this respect, it was certainly successful. however, it doesn't really lead to repeated listenings. this is perhaps better attributed to "lard" as biafra is all over it.

the last two tracks, however, are a lot better. my understanding is that they were the original intent behind "1000 homo djs". the sound draws on that mid 80's synth heavy ministry sound more so than on their later satires on metallica.....but it's a kind of halfway point. there are guitars, but they sound more....well, they sound grungey. keep in mind that this was from back in '88. one is left with the conclusion that jourgenson was listening to a lot of soundgarden at the time. we've even got a very kim thayil guitar solo in here...

lyrically, they're also interesting in their typically jourgensonian satirical apathy. he somehow manages to make us realize that political problems in the united states are it's own muzzled population's fault, yet simultaneously makes us question whether he's being serious or not. is the listener the 'enemy'? well, the christian right would say so, probably. however, the christian right is such a minority that we may actually question if it is our fault that they're in power. such subtle, vague rock star apathy is what jourgenson was so very good at around this time frame. he himself was a contradiction in that he was both the stereotype and the exact opposite of the stereotype. a very interesting persona....most people know the cheesy side through rob zombie's shameful plagiarism.

anyways, i don't know the availability of this thing but i think it's out of print. if you see it around, i'd say you should grab it for collection/completion purposes. however, don't spend too much time looking for it....it's not really worth the effort.

An oldie but a classic goodie. "Supernaut" is one of the stompiest industrial rock anthems I've ever heard. Hard to believe this got released in 1990 and it still gets played very regularly.
Much lesser known are the other three and less club friendly tracks. "Hey Asshole" is a sludgey, repetitive seven minute epic that suddenly grew on me five years after I bought this. It's basically a vitriolic monologue from a highway patrol officer backed by a simple repetitive metal riff... with a twist at the end.
The other two tracks never did much for me though they pad out the release quite nicely. If anything, they're a welcome change to to the strength or sludgeyness of the first two tarcks.

The version of Supernaut that appears on here is not the Trent Reznor version. The vocals for that track are by Al Jourgensen. If you want the Trent Reznor version, it only appears on the "Black Box" boxed set.
