Go To

  • All-Star Cast: Look at how many people were members of Pigface!
  • Foe Yay: Not as much as straightforward Ho Yay, but still some:
    • Al Jourgensen and Richard 23 are just a little too obsessed with being mean to/about each other.
    • Al and Sascha Konietzko almost come to blows over beer and then make up when Sascha gives Al a Patsy Cline shirt. Awww.
    • Martin Atkins has a lot of Foe Yay with the members of Killing Joke and ex-bandmate, John Lydon.
  • Ho Yay: Oh, the Ho Yay... Where to start?
    • Al Jourgensen has Ho Yay with... well, pretty much everyone. His closest relationships tend to be one of two types: Slap-Slap-Kiss (with Paul Barker, Bill Rieflin and Chris himself) or Mad Love (with Phildo Owen, Jay, Poodle, Princess and various other Yes Men). Such moments include:
      • Someone referring to the large crop of musicians he surrounds himself with as his, uh, "Boy-Toys."
      • Al throwing a tantrum after finding out that Paul went out drinking without him.
      • After Al gets heavily into heroin and his wife leaves him, Paul and Bill both take turns living with him to try to keep him clean.
      • Chris describing a meeting with Al and Paul as being like parents announcing to their kids that they're getting divorced.
      • Chris and Al repeatedly bicker about everything under the sun but also repeatedly (direct quote) "kiss and make up." The Ho Yay reaches critical mass, though, when they fight over Chris' friendship with a womannote  Al doesn't like.

    • Al's relationship with Ogre, on the other hand, is in a class all by itself. It's mentioned off-hand that they live together briefly and do lots of drugs. Al eventually invites Ogre to tour with Ministry and is annoyed when Ogre brings his girlfriend along.
      He (Al) seemed to be determined to tell the world that he and Ogre were tight. He should've just thrown a press conference, or just bitten Ogre in the neck and sucked his blood, no difference.
    • Chris Connelly and William Tucker, full stop. It almost seems intentional when their first meeting was described as Love at First Sight.
      • They go on to become quite the duo, dismantling everything in a hotel room, playing pranks on tour managers and other band members, etc. Even after the breakup of Ministry and the Revolting Cocks, they remain friends and Chris all but goes into mourning when Tucker dies.

    • There's also Ogre's relationship with the first tour manager of the Pigface tour, in which they spend hours alone in hotel rooms.
    • En Esch makes out with Tucker onstage.
  • Memetic Molester: The Pigface t-shirt merchant, in universe.
  • Promoted Fanboy: Chris himself as well as Trent Reznor
  • Tearjerker:
    • The suicides of Jeff Ward and William Tucker in 1993 and 1999, respectively.
  • We're Still Relevant, Dammit!: A lot of the various people encountered have this problem.
