"Electro-Shock for President" is the last release from the band Brainiac. The band decided to use only electronic equipment instead of guitars to demonstrate the band's ever-evolving sound. This album was intended to be a teaser for Brainiac's fourth album, expected to be their major label debut. However, vocalist and keyboard player Tim Taylor died in a car accident shortly after this album's release.

Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails noted in a BBC radio show (May 2005) that Brainiac was "really inspiring to me from a sonic standpoint". He went on to say that while recording 2005's "With Teeth", he would use Electro-Shock for President as a sound reference.
