20 of the most iconic songs in industrial music

Curated from the pages of Assimilate: A Critical History of Industrial Music, this playlist spans over 30 years, offering a chronological tour of industrial music. From its politically charged beginnings in noisy performance art and process-based tape meddling, it moved into 1980s flirtations with rock to its more recent aggressive, synth-driven goth-tinged dance stylings. Highlights include not only the classic work of Ministry, Front 242, and Skinny Puppy, but also nearly forgotten early work of Die Krupps and the moody latter-day masterpieces by Covenant and Wumpscut.
