1000 Homo DJs was one of many Ministry side projects from the 1980's. The projects first release was a single in 1988 of two Ministry outtakes from the Land of Rape and Honey album, entitled "Apathy" b/w "Better Ways". The name supposedly came from WaxTrax! co-founder/co-owner Jim Nash. When he heard the songs, he said "No one's gonna play this, it's gonna take a thousand homo DJs to play this for anyone to buy it."
