Ministry Unveil Pro-’Occupy’ Movement Video for ’99 Percenters’

Ministry have just released the official video for the single ’99 Percenters.’ Written as a modern day protest for the pro-Occupy movement, ’99 Percenters’ is the first single released from the upcoming album ‘Relapse.’

Ministry mastermind Al Jourgensen has made his support for the Occupy movement very well known, not only through his music, but in various interviews. In our recent chat with the Ministry frontman, he gave us a truly ‘Jourgensen’ quote regarding ‘Occupy.’

“I think it’s f—ing brilliant and amazing and I’m glad they don’t have backing and a central message,” Jourgensen told us. “It’s just people being pissed off. It reminds me of when I was growing up in the ’60s. There’s grandfathers, grandmothers, businessmen and then crazy people, too. And that’s what’s great about it, it’s so diverse, the message is diverse and the people are just pissed. To me, that is a movement – not like the Koch brothers funding the Tea Party. That’s not a movement, that’s like a bowel movement.”

The video for ’99 Percenters’ showcases Jourgensen in a very ‘Vertigo’-like spiral mixed in with footage from nationwide ‘Occupy’ protests. The footage depicts peaceful protesting as well as the violent conflicts with police which shut down many of the protests in the United States. During the chorus chant of ‘1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 99 percenters,’ images of Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, the Federal Reserve and more are shown to identify the various targets of the Occupy movement.

Ministry’s upcoming album ‘Relapse’ is set for release on March 27 and the band will be playing sporadic tour dates across the U.S. in June before making their way into Europe.
