The term to "go ballistic" probably originates from guided missiles. A guided missle that loses it's lock will go ballistic, that is to say it becomes an unguided missile, likely to cause damage wherever it lands. Hence the use of ballistic to describe someone who has lost control and flown in a rage.
"You must keep the target inside the HUD or the missile will lose lock and go ballistic."

"If my mum finds my stash of porn she is gonna go ballistic."

1. Of or relating to the trajectory of projectiles, their motion and/or effects. Used in circuses by clowns to properly gauge and define accurate custard pie throwing. Although rarely heard, ballistics are all around us. When we throw a broken bottle into the face of a policeman, we unconsciously use our acquired knowledge of ballistics to work out exactly how hard and high the throw must be to really mess up the bitch.

2. To be incredibly angry. See also furious and apeshit.
2. "Aw, I knew I shouldn't have thrown that bottle. Dad's gonna go ballistic when he finds out how much the bail is."
