XTRMNTR (pronounced "Exterminator") is a 2000 album by Primal Scream. In a departure from Primal Scream's earlier hedonistic recordings, the band took a more political stance, attacking government, police, and multinational corporations. A free postcard championing the cause of the "Free Satpal Ram Campaign" and encouraging fans to participate was included with initial copies of the album's UK release.
The album is also notable for being the final LP release on the influential British label Creation Records. The track "Accelerator" was later lifted from the album to become the last single to be released on the label. Although Gary Mounfield joined the band in 1997 and recorded a selection of tracks on the album Vanishing Point, it was the first time he shared songwriting credits with the band and his first full album since his time in The Stone Roses.
In 2001, Q magazine named it as one of the "50 Heaviest Albums Of All Time".
XTRMNTR was critically acclaimed upon release and is recognized as one of the two definitive Primal Scream albums - the other being Screamadelica. NME magazine (12/30/00, p. 77) rated XTRMNTR #2 in its "Top 50 Albums Of The Year 2000", and later at the NME
