    I can't find them now. Is the artist deleting the comments? If so, THAT'S fucked up.



    edit: yup. I had a tab open from a few hours ago.

    I assume one of those posts is an ETS member since it was similar my original reply to R-Dot-Young. If so, can you confirm?

    Yep, that was definitely me that had posted that. DigitalChaos, I had essentially used your comment, since that's all that really needed to be said about it!

    The first comment was also an ETS member who connected to me via facebook. He was a member of the old ETS but still lurks here now.

    I was just being extra sure that the original poster didn't delete their own comment.
    That confirms it... kinda shitty of this Yonas guy to scrub references to a song he sampled for the foundation of his song.

    And just in case no one recognised, that's Dave Grohl in the foreground.

    And just in case no one knows what a Dave Grohl is, it's a drum machine.

    Not sure if this has ever been posted, but in the most recent Matt Darey - Nocturnal Podcast, the first track was a pretty chill track with In This Twilight samples.

    On Sunday, October 21, 2012, on Ovation, episode 106 of "Song By Song" will air, titled "Johnny Cash: Hurt". Synopsis:

    "One of Cash's final and most unlikely hits, this painful ballad was written and first performed by superstar Trent Reznor; the Nine Inch Nails front man explains why he was reluctant to allow Johnny to record the song."

    Fragile's not exactly an orgy of club hit singles. That list's rather populist.

    and @vertigo is right, the fragile was not really a "commercial" success. MAYBE starfuckers could crack that top 10, but thats about it.

    I think The Fragile would be better as an album if it had at least one or two really strong "single material" track. Singles are not always a bad thing. Closer being so ridiculously catchy is something that sort of holds TDS together better. The second disc of Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness wouldn't be that awesome if it weren't for 1979 - arguably its biggest single - being there.

    I think WITT is one of NIN's best singles, and Starfuckers was also really catchy and a good single too, even Into The Void was a good single.

    The problem (commercially) for The Fragile was that it was a double album full of instrumental and too experimental songs compared to the stuff that was popular back then when nu-metal, poppy boy bands and teenage singers had taken control of the music media. The Downward Spiral would have never been a success if it had been released 5 years before or 5 years later, it succeeded because "alternative rock" was popular then, otherwise I doubt it would have sold so many copies.

    We should probably move this to a thread where we discuss where Trent got all his songs from. It's like the inverse of this thread. I think it's about time the NIN comes to term with it. I mean seriously, have none of you hear Godsmack's Time Bomb?

    I logged into the TOIOU twitter for the first time in forever to find that someone had written a thesis on NIN's relationship with digital media for the Empirical Musicology Review entitled "Artist autonomy in a digital era: The case of Nine Inch Nails".

    Full copy here: https://kb.osu.edu/dspace/bitstream/...124a-Brown.pdf

    Maybe if it was a partial day and early. He has a concert in SF tonight, and two hours ago Michael Zapruder said on Twitter that he just saw Byrne on 19th Street.

    Literally the next tweet I saw was a guy from a Welsh band I know with Byrne...
    Gary Numan maybe? It was in the pipeline...
