AllMusic Review by

While the original B-side of this 12" single, "Hey Asshole," isn't exactly much -- consisting of little more than a shouted loop of the song title and a crunching rhythm as background for an extended rant by a character playing, indeed, an asshole of a cop -- the title track is something else again, one of Al Jourgensen's best efforts at creating completely over-the-top industrial death disco. While it doesn't do much in the way of reinterpreting the original Black Sabbath number -- no lyric changes, same basic pace -- the amped-up guitars, huge drum fills, dancefloor-oriented pounding, and distorted lyrical screaming (originally done by Trent Reznor, supposedly re-recorded by Jourgensen after problems with Reznor's then record company, but later revealed to have apparently been Reznor's original vocal with slight changes) turn it into a massive, exhilarating crunch. The CD version adds the tracks from an earlier single: the industrial-by-numbers fuzz of "Apathy" and the similarly nondescript "Better Ways."
