"The Great Satan" as written by and Al Jourgensen....
I believe the title was "Bin Laden determined to attack inside the United States"

Absolute destruction is the battleground we're given
Strip away the fabric of a thousand years of livin'

Get Out! Get Out!
Burning down old glory while we jump around and shout:
Get Out! Get Out!
Bringing down the USA is what it's all about

Revolution's our solution to the life we're given
Retribution is the way of life that we are livin'

Get Out! Get Out!
Burning down old glory while we jump around and shout:
Get Out! Get Out!
Bringing down the USA is what it's all about

The trumpet of freedom has sounded
Great Satan
We've begun inoculating troops and first responders against ballistic airports

Desecration of the concentration camps we live in
Occupation of our nation just won't be forgiven

Get Out! Get Out!
Burning down old glory while we jump around and shout:
Get Out! Get Out!
Bringing down the USA is what it's all about

The trumpet of freedom has sounded
Great Satan

Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill.

May God continue to Bless America

    General CommentWow, way to write a middle school book report. But I digress.

    "The Great Satan" has to be my absolute favorite Ministry song. The phrase itself, according to Uncle Al, is a reflection of how other countries, particularly those in the Middle East, perceive America. It even went on to attract the attention of Stephen Colbert, who asked one of his guests, "America: Great Satan or Greatest Satan?"
    In the original version of this song, released on Rantology, the phrase "Bringin' down the USA is what it's all about" was "We don't need your fucking war, so get your asses out". Less tactful, but more fun.

    General Commenthello and i am the great satan. nah, nah, but really. i think this song is about the evil, almost satan-like state of corporate america. i think bin laden had it right and america needs a reform bcause of the evil, almost satan-like state of corporate america. satan is a good discriptor of the state of corporate america. the state of corporate america is very satan-like as the song lyrics in this composition,

    bringing down the usa is what its all about

    bcause of that lyric

    occupation of our nation wont be forgiven

    so i also think is about how corporate america is making our nation not our nation but corpaorate america nation. i know people may not have same view as me, but i think dat is wat they are about.

    also, the lyric

    the trumpet have freedom sound

    great satan

    also represents how america is becoming less free and more satanic-lyke. and i dun that is neccesarily a bbad thing, but to ech there pwn also,

    kil kil kil kil kill kill kil

    says that america (the corporate one) is killing our freedom ass well thus becoming more satanic-lyke.
