One Question Interviews: Ministry

Al Jourgensen (Ministry)

SPB: Is there a sample you’ve tried to get the rights to use but were denied?

Jourgensen: ALL OF THEM.... Just kidding. Actually the biggest sample pain in the ass was on Houses of the Molé with the use of Carmina Burana on “No W.” It was a nightmare. We'd reached out to the publisher via Sanctuary's contacts and had gotten an initial okay, but then the record came out and all of a sudden the publisher sent a Cease and Desist letter to Sanctuary about the sample after 30,000 units had been pressed. I had to go back in the studio and re-do the track and a second pressing was made. Then I found out later, it was ‘cause Capital One wanted an exclusive on the use of Carmina Burana and you KNOW they were paying the big bucks. And that fucking Capital One commercial played over and over. Every time I turned on the TV it was that Capital One commercial with Carmina Burana.
