Track of the Day: 'Exterminate, Annihilate, Destroy'

A reader responds to Adrienne’s bleg with some German electronic:

“Exterminate, Annihilate, Destroy” by Rotersand is probably the weirdest song on my running playlist. It’s damn effective, because it has the pace of a march sped up for the purposes of being an EBM [electronic body music] track. It also samples Dr. Who for the duration. So it’s an EBM Dalek march, but it’s wonderful.
