I may as well start with something awesome. It’s only going to get depressing from this point forward.
I was only a wee lad of 7 at Ministry’s apex, so unearthing all of this industrial blasphemious goodness is depressing. Bill Wirtz’s death and the spunky play of the Blackhawks “inspired” Al Jourgensen to write a song about his favorite hockey team.
When you’re a Blackhawk, you skate with pride
So many legends have played for our side
Mikita, Hull, Esposito, Savard
To name a few, that’s why we play so hard
Makes Trent Reznor read like Marcel Proust.
ITunes has the song for $0.99, which, after drinking three glasses of port, still sounds toothless and pandering. Nevertheless, all of the proceeds go to Blackhawks Charities, which is bankrupt after treating Sergei Samsonov’s valium addiction. Martin Havlat’s shoulder isn’t going to reattach itself!
Sickboy’s Unifying Theory of Life. That’s all I have to say regarding the song.
