Jesus Built My Hotrod by Ministry. This Speed Metal classic features vocals from a very drunk and disoriented Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers. When he was in Chicago for the first Lollapalooza tour, Al Jourgensen of Ministry brought him in to add vocals to this song. Jourgensen told us: "Gibby came down completely drunk off his ass.
He couldn't even sit on a stool, let alone sing. I mean, he was wasted. He fell off the stool about 10 times during the recording of that vocal.

He made no sense and it was just gibberish. So I spent two weeks editing tape of what he did, thinking it still was better than what I was thinking of doing with the song. Ministry was signed to Warner Bros. Records, who made the mistake of giving the band $750,000 to make the album. "We, of course shot it all up our arms and put it up our noses and didn't have a single song to show for it," recounts Jourgensen. So they doubled down and they released 'Jesus Built My Hotrod,' which to this day is still the hottest selling single on Warner Bros.
in history. But they had to do that to make their money back, because they'd already put about 1. 5 mil into us. And we got one song. By the end of it, we finally got our act together and we created an album. But the first song was a complete accident. This shows the power of the record companies, because they hated it.
They were like, What is this? This is stupid. I thought we hired Ministry, instead we get this bing a bang a bong bing bing bing bing, you know, this hillbilly stuff. And they hated it. But it started selling, surprisingly. Because that was released about 6 months before the album was completed. It started selling as a single because they tried to make their money back on anything; they didn't think they were going to get anything else out of us Psalm 69 so they released 'Jesus Built My Hotrod' with Gibby, blithering idiot, talking s--t, just screaming into a mike and falling off his chair.
And they sold it. They sold like 14 million copies of it or something like that. And so then they doubled down and we were able to finish the record.
We knew we couldn't shoot the rest of the budget up our arms, so we went in there, rolled up our sleeves, not only to shoot up, but also to work, and finished the album. But that was quite an auspicious beginning to a multi platinum album.
