** In a 2016 interview, Al finds "Animositisomina" to be this. Due to him constantly being sick from kicking his heroin habit at the time and his falling out with Paul Barker.

** In a 2016 interview, Al finds "Animositisomina" to be this. Due to him constantly being sick from kicking his heroin habit at the time and his falling out with Paul Barker. In the same interview he claimed he left the sessions two days earlier than planned in frustration, which is why the final track, "Leper", was left as an instrumental.

* OldShame: ''With Sympathy'' is pretty much this trope summed up for Ministry.

* OldShame: ''With Sympathy'' is pretty much this trope summed up for Ministry. Their debut album, it's a {{Synthpop}} record that is very of its time and [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness quite different]] from what the band became after Jourgensen discovered industrial music. The album has a solid fanbase (some of which ''only'' like this era of Ministry) and modest critical acclaim. Jourgensen, however, absolutely despises the record and claims to destroy any copies of it he comes across. He once claimed that he even went as far as burning the master tapes himself, but the album is readily available on all streaming sites.

* TheOtherMarty: [[NineInchNails Trent Reznor]] was to sing on 1000 Homo [=DJs=]' "Supernaut", but his label, TVT Records, wouldn't allow it to be released, so Al Jourgensen re-recorded the vocals himself [[note]]rumor has it that they merely distorted Reznor's vocal track beyond recognition and released it that way, but Jourgensen's always denied this[[/note]]. The "Trent Reznor Vocal Version" of "Supernaut" eventually saw official release on the box set ''Black Box Wax Trax! Records: The First 13 Years''... which was, ironically enough, released by TVT - the label had bought out the whole back catalog of Wax Trax! Records at that point, which included 1000 Homo [=DJs=].

* FatalMethodActing: Mike Scaccia, longtime guitarist for band (he was apart of both the classic lineup and the reunited 2012 configuration) died of a seizure while the band was performing at a club in Texas in December 2012. Shortly before his death, he requested that the club turn down the strobe lights, but he was apparently ignored by the promoters.

* ThrowItIn: There were actual lyrics to "Jesus Built My Hotrod" at first, but when Gibby Haynes started doing some psychotic scatting over the instrumental track, Al liked that better and used that in the final product.
