Ministry release Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs
Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs is the common title for the fifth studio album by industrial metal band Ministry, released in 1992 on Sire Records.
The actual title of the album is ΚΕΦΑΛΗΞΘ (a Greek word meaning "head", and the number 69 in Greek numerals), though Psalm 69 is used for simplicity's sake. The album led them into a more mainstream audience, with the track "Jesus Built My Hotrod" receiving major airplay on MTV and various other music stations.
The song "N.W.O." (New World Order) features samples of George H. W. Bush and was used in the Ralph Bakshi half-live action/half-animated film Cool World. It is front man Al Jourgensen's critical take on the state of world affairs after the Gulf War and the end of the Cold War and an uncertain future. "Jesus Built My Hotrod" features guest vocals by Gibby Haynes from the Butthole Surfers.
"N.W.O." was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance at the Grammy Awards of 1993.
Since the album's release, Ministry had put multiple references to the number 69 in future albums. For example, the albums Dark Side of the Spoon and Houses of the Molé both had hidden tracks with a track number of 69.
