"Electric Head Pt. 2 (The Ecstasy)" is the first official single from the Astro-Creep: 2000 album by the heavy metal band White Zombie. A remix version of this song was the first track on the 1996 album Supersexy Swingin' Sounds.

Origins[edit]

The song contains audio samples taken from the 1971 movie Shaft. In the song, the lyrics "A fistful of hair and a splinter in the mind" could possibly refer to Lucio Fulci's 1979 film Zombie in which a zombie grabs a woman by the hair and pulls her through a closet, causing a shard of wood to pierce her eye.

Music video[edit]

The music video, the second music video made for a song from the Astro Creep album, shows the band playing in a circus of freaks, clowns and monsters while riding on a truck.[1]
