Songfacts®:

  • Ministry's first new song in four years, the band debuted the track during their performance at the Blackest of the Black Fest in Silverado, California in May 2017.
  • The Antifa movement is a composite of autonomous anti-fascist groups in the United States, who believe in direct action as a valid way of fighting far-right and white supremacist ideologies. Frontman Al Jourgensen explained in a video:

    "I do believe that people should stand up for themselves and not be party to this bulls--t we've being fed... I think Antifa is a state of mind. It's, like, 'We're not going to take this s--t anymore, because we've been sold a bad bill of goods here by you people.'… I relish the attitude of Antifa... I think that some of the tactics they take actually hurt the cause or the thought process more than it helps, but I do enjoy the 'enough!' aspect of it, and that's what this song is about."
