What's My Mission Now?

"What's My Mission Now?" is a single by the American industrial hip-hop group Tackhead, released in October 1985 on On-U Sound.[1][2] Scott Becker of Option called it "Sherwood as his outrageous best: wild stereo effects, a crucial beat, a bit of dubbing-it-up, found vocals (in this instance, used largely to poke fun at the military), odd sounds, the works."[3]
