15. Filth Pig (Filth Pig, 1996)

“One of the greatest MInistry songs ever. It has great music and great lyrics to match. It has slow and fast parts to make it even better. I recommend it to be one of the best songs ever made.”

“It’s an Incredible song. Definitely my favorite because of the awesome fast and slow parts throughout. Plus the beat is like contagious.”

12. Psalm 69 (Psalm 69, 1992)

“Commentary on the dangers of blind faith. Also a sick, epic sounding song! When you close your eyes and listen to it, it gives you the feeling that you’re living something extraordinary, an adventure.”

“This was the first song I heard from them and I gotta say, It’s awesome! The beat is awesome and can really make you dance anytime anywhere!”

9. Revenge (With Sympathy, 1983)

“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.”
