The best place to hear industrial music is in a goth club, where it goes over very well. If that's not your thing, your best option is right here, where I am counting down my favorite industrial songs. We are at #2: "Worlock" by Skinny Puppy. Led by multi-instrumentalist cEvin Key and vocalist Nivek Ogre, the only constant members, legendary industrial band Skinny Puppy formed in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1982 (the group broke up in 1995, but are still going after reforming in 2003.) They are staunch anti-Vivisectionists, and have also accused the United States Military of using their music to torture inmates at Guantanamo Bay. From their 1989 album, Rabies, (featuring Ministry's Al Jourgensen as a band member,) "Worlock" includes samples of The Beatles' "Helter Skelter," mixed with Charles Manson's version of that tune. The "Worlock" video featured graphic footage from multiple horror films, so graphic (I've seen it. I can vouch.) that MTV banned the video. No matter. I've linked to a video of the band performing the song in concert instead. Be sure to notice Ogre's theatrical performance. (Info verified by Wikipedia)
Written by Dwayne Goettel, Nivek Ogre, cEvin Key. Performed by Nivek Ogre, William Morrison, Justin Bennett and cEvin Key. 2005 Synthetic Symphony

@TRBRocks420 - "Not bad" is better than "This sucks."

I don't know, "our music was used to torture prisoners" sounds like a selling point for some bands! NOW you're talking my definition of "industrial."
