    Al refers to the first Ministry release as being 'an abortion.'
    They're covered with tattoos, especially Al.
    They've experimented with drugs.
    Al's poet friend Lorri Jackson died of a heroin overdose in Chicago. After this happened, rumors circulated that Al was the leader of a big heroin using cult-like group.
    While recording the song 'Supernaut,' Al decided that he'd like Trent Reznor to do the vocals. When TVT Records (Trent's record label) got word of this, they put a stop to it. What Al ended up doing was having Trent do the vocals and then he distorted them to such an extreme that they were unrecognizable.
    While being a Pink Floyd parody, their album title 'Dark Side of the Spoon' is a heroin reference.
    Although founding a genre of music, they never achieved much commercial success.
    Although having a lot of members, Al is in charge of the writing, production and programming.
    Any band that mixes rock and roll with electronic beats has been influenced by Ministry.
    The band's been around for 20+ years.
    Al's produced many songs for many different artists, including Nine Inch Nails and Anthrax.
    Al stays busy by participating in many different side-projects.
    They've changed styles dramatically since forming, originally sounding like a mixture of the Depeche Mode and Duran Duran.
