"Just One Fix" is the third single from industrial metal band Ministry's 1992 album Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs. The song features samples from Sid and Nancy along with a sample of Frank Sinatra reciting "Just One Fix" (from the movie The Man with the Golden Arm).
It is rumoured that the Rammstein song "Du Hast" is based on the track, or that the guitar riff in the Rammstein track was cut and sampled directly from Just One Fix due to the similarity in the guitar riffs of both songs, but the members of Rammstein are quoted as saying that they were simply highly influenced by Ministry.
The sample of "Gimme the thorazine. You don't need the thorazine" is a slowed down excerpt from the movie The Trip. Peter Fonda's character Paul is actually tripping on LSD and crying for thorazine while Bruce Dern's character John is trying to calm him down.
A music video for the song was produced, and is notable for featuring Beat author William S. Burroughs in both audio and video samples. This version of the song features an audio sample of Burroughs saying "Bring it all down", and a sample of Chloe Webb's line "Never trust a junkie" from the film Sid and Nancy. The video was featured in an episode of Beavis and Butt-head called "Tornado" and a tornado also appears in the video. In their commentary, Beavis was so shocked during the hematemesis scene that he declared it "beyond the limits of good taste".
