Issued by Wax Trax! in 1989, Virus includes the version of the title track that appeared on the Naïve LP before sample clearance issues forced KMFDM to modify it pretty heavily. En Esch's lecherous, distorted slink slides all over the pulsing drum track and treated blasts of guitar; the song sounds like innocent new wave gone very naughty in a PVC hell. "Virus" is joined by "More and Faster," "Don't Blow Your Top," and "High and Geil."
