I'm about to date myself here, but I saw a KROCK summer festival back in 1999 at Jones Beach, NY with Rage Against the Machine, Blink 182, Rob Zombie, Live, etc... and Limp Bizkit headlined and played a cover of this song. Surprised it took them years of past-their-prime music to finally release a studio version of it.

Note: During this era, Fred Durst was being extra "Fred Dursty", watch with caution.

Dude I was there! My cousin was a huge Rage fan, and me being 14 and not know better was a huge bizkit fan... But I always thought this cover was awesome.

This is actually REALLY good. Glad to hear LB is still putting out some listenable material anymore, even if it comes at the expense of being a cover song.

Instrumentation is nice, interesting take on the original song. Can't say the same about Durst or the samples.

So What is still the best Ministry song though.

Actually Limp Bizkit and Slipknot were headlining this festival (along w/ Korn, Hatebreed and Killswitch Engage), so most people were there to see them.

EDIT: But probably no one knew this was a Ministry cover, so yes - most were just going with it hahaha

That's awesome! Haha, it was a great concert, and at the time, I was a Limp Bizkit fan as well. I remember they were just on the verge of becoming huge, so their set had this feel of excitement to it and the crowd loved it. Especially when everyone chucked those glow sticks in the air during Nookie.

If you look at the video I posted, that user uploaded the rest of the LB set from that show to YouTube, it's a blast from the past.
