Adios... Puta Madres (incorrect Spanish for "Goodbye Bitch Mothers", or maybe in Mexican Spanish "Goodbye Motherfuckers") is a live album by Ministry, released on March 31, 2009 on 13th Planet Records. The album was recorded at various locations on Ministry's farewell tour, dubbed the "C U LaTouR". Allmusic database and Windows Media database incorrectly list the title of the record as "Adios...Putas Madres" (which would be grammatically correct in Spanish; whereas in Mexican Spanish, the correct form would instead be "Adiós... putamadres"). In 2009, "Señor Peligro" was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Metal Performance for the 52nd Grammy Awards. [4]
