Keys To The City (song)
"Keys to the City" is a song from American industrial metal band Ministry & Co Conspirators. It was written in late 2007 and presented as a gift to the Chicago Blackhawks and the Wirtz Family, owners of the Chicago Blackhawks, in December 2007. In late February 2008 it was embraced by the Chicago Blackhawks as a companion song to "Here Come the Hawks," the Blackhawks official theme song. It was written by Al Jourgensen (Ministry, Revolting Cocks), Joshua Bradford (Revolting Cocks) and Paul Raven (Killing Joke, Ministry). It is available as a download from iTunes as of 5 March 2008 with proceeds benefitting Blackhawks Charities. Al Jourgensen traveled to Chicago to celebrate the song's release, participating in media interviews and was honored at the March 5 home game played by the Chicago Blackhawks against the Anaheim Ducks.
This was the last single released by Ministry before Jourgensen retired the band in May 2008 (though the band did reform in August 2011).
The song was remixed by Revolting Cocks and featured in their 2009 release, Sex-O Olympic-O, as "Keys to the City (Vegas Mix)".
"Keys to the City" was also included in the soundtrack of the hockey video game NHL 10 published by EA Sports, which was released September 15, 2009 and featured Blackhawks star forward Patrick Kane on its cover.

Famous quotes containing the words keys and/or city:
“And yet we constantly reclaim some part of that primal spontaneity through the youngest among us, not only through their sorrow and anger but simply through everyday discoveries, life unwrapped. To see a child touch the piano keys for the first time, to watch a small body slice through the surface of the water in a clean dive, is to experience the shock, not of the new, but of the familiar revisited as though it were strange and wonderful.”
—Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
“Yet, when the city sleeps;
When all the cries are still:
The stars and heavenly deeps
Work out a perfect will.”
—Lionel Pigot Johnson (18671902)
