Ministry Tackle Incels, Misogyny & More On New Single “B.D.E”


Platinum-selling industrial metal pioneers Ministry have issued a new track titled “B.D.E.” online. That abbreviation stands for “Big Dick Energy” and finds the group’s frontman Al Jourgensen tackling misogyny, violence against women and incels.

Jourgensen commented:

“The incel subsect and general misogynistic tendencies in our society are dangerous yet seem to fly under the radar so we figured it’s time to shine a light on it. In true Ministry fashion we battle it with sarcasm.”

This song opens the band’s sixteenth studio album, “Hopiumforthemasses“, due out March 01st on Nuclear Blast Records. A spring tour with Gary Numan and Front Line Assembly has been booked around the release of that opus.
