30 Day Song Challenge, Day 20

Day 20, A Song to Listen to When You’re Angry: “Man Should Surrender”

Pailhead was a short-lived, late ’80s collaboration between Ministry and Minor Threat vocalist Ian Mackaye (also of Fugazi, of course, but before Fugazi was formed). Despite their differences (Mackaye being straightedge, and Ministry’s Al Jourgensen being at that time quite the aficionado of illegal drugs), these musicians shared a strong anti-authoritarian spirit with which all of the six tracks they released are brimming. This is loud, heavy, propulsive stuff good for beating along with one’s fist on a desk, steering wheel, or what have you.
