"No W" is a single by industrial metal band Ministry. The song was the first single from their 2004 album, Houses of the Molé .



Another version of this song appears on later versions of the album. This "redux" version is 2:55 in length, and has all of the samples from Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana" removed. This version of the song is featured on the video games Need for Speed: Underground 2 and Tony Hawk's Underground 2 ; though the version featured in the latter retains the George W. Bush speech at the beginning, the former does not. The Redux version also features a guitar solo toward the end which the other does not.

Music video

The music video features an actor dancing while wearing a crude George W. Bush mask, while Ministry play in a desert with a choir chanting "O Fortuna" in the background.
