Killing Joke - Millennium (1994)
I'm going through a bit of Metal head phase at the moment inspired by Sfw's Torche tune on our TotW, notably listening to a back catalogue of Ministry and Killing Joke. So hence this post, the song which belatedly introduced me KJ.
It's 23:59 on Dec 31st 1999, we're all huddled together getting ready to countdown the new millennium, we grit our teeth and close our eyes. There's an air of anticipation, as in one minute it's the end of the world (sponsored by the Daily Mirror), the locusts are coming, a mass alien invasion, Y2K this, Y2K that, bringing western society to it's knees. All a little bit inconvenient I thought, as more importantly the Millennium playlist I made for this party seemed to be going well, Killing Joke's riff-tastic Metal classic, 'Millennium' a highlight. I felt it a fitting soundtrack to accompany The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to the party and it would be a shame should Prince's prophecy come true and ruin it now.

Prophecies, the end of the world, the boys are still at it after a 30 year career with a new album entitled 'MMXII', bloody hell! Check their official website
Capturing that sort fear of the unknown, Killing Joke's 'Millennium' was perfect, second only to Prince's 'oh no what's gonna happen, f@&k it lets have a party' classic '1999'. But do you remember any Millennium themed others? Doom ridden or otherwise?
