Sonic Reducers | Ministry Goes Pop

Al Jourgensen is covering Iggy? We have something to say about that.

Another Friday, another tsunami of new tunes. Among them: Al Jourgensen and Ministry‘s grim cover of the Iggy And The Stooges classic Search And Destroy, which he converts from a swaggering tale of chest-beating bravado into a contemplative slow-burner — supposedly the result of Al accidentally singing it at half-speed during a live appearance in 2019.

OK, it’s not the biggest news of all time — but it gives Eric Alper and I something interesting to talk about in today’s episode of Sonic Reducers. Listen in as we dissect the track, express our admiration for the inimitable Jourgensen, and marvel at his ability to come up with the best album titles in the biz. Sonic Reducers. One topic. Two music nerds. Five minutes. Everything you need to know. We ain’t got time to make no apologies.
