    Correct me if I'm wrong, but was this NIN's first "major" TV appearance?

    Somehow it doesn't contain that bit from Closure? Or did I miss it? (not the Trent talking part but the actual show)

    Wow, I'm laughing my ass off watching that. That is just hilarious. All of those kids trying to get down with this NIN stuff. Wow, the 80s was a bad time for hair. Who would've thought more than 20 years from now, the guy with the bad long hair cut and the blonde host would end up becoming even more famous as an Oscar-winning composer and a morning TV talk show host, respectively? BTW, I wonder if Trent did get it on with Kelly Ripa?

    They had some B-roll footage on the hidden DVD easter egg but not the full "performance". This is the first time I think the "performance" as broadcast has surfaced online.

    It's like a bomb exploded when you posted it (and now you couldn't stop it anymore... )

    halo 3

    (i'm pretty sure) the vocal of the woman at the end of the clip is heard on track 11 of halo 3, "let's hear it for nine inch nails..."

    Of course, actually this long version is missing the two final words "Woo, they're good" you can hear on halo 3. This is a old known fact still on the ninfaq.com
    B:4 "What is that last track on the _HLAH_ single?"
    Track 11 on Halo 3 (the woman yelling "Let's hear it for nine inch nails -- woo they're GOOD!") was from a nin appearance on Dance Party USA. Apparently the yelling woman was the show's host.

    What a great find! I just love how the fandom finds this rare stuff and shares it. Like everyone else here I got a quite a chuckle out of it but at the same time I felt embarrassed for Trent. He'll probably hate us for finding this and letting it see the light of day.

    Yeah, the Closure footage is not actually the broadcast footage. I'm sure it's probably from the guy with the camcorder (who asked Trent what they were doing today) filming from off-stage. He probably recorded the entire performance, but they probably only put a small snippet on Closure because of concern about copyrights or because of embarrassment.

    That looks like Lee Mars on the turntable/keyboard, so that would put this performance at probably mid to late 1990. In fact, Dance Party USA was filmed in Philadelphia, and NIN were touring in Philly on July 14, 1990, so that is a likely candidate for this performance.

    Yeah, that sounds reasonable.

    While we're discussing the minutiae...can anyone else identify the shirt Reznor's wearing under that leather jacket?

    Is it me, or did Trent look a bit pissed that they were going to be on the show on the Closure easter egg? Dance Party USA just seems to be the opposite of what they were trying to do at the time. Maybe they were pressured to go on there by TVT?

    Either way, it's nice to see this performance show up online, but I imagine this is what Trent was talking about when he mentioned "some embarassing videotapes" a couple years ago.

    @trent_reznor: Many years ago, a young and naive Nine Inch Nails were asked what TV shows they'd be interested in appearing on.

    - As a joke (and likely drunk), they thought of the most absurd choice they could come up with at the time.

    -They were then informed their bluff had been called and were actually booked on said show (thanks again Sioux Z).

    -They hopped in their Honda Civic touring vehicle (hatchback) and travelled many miles to (I think) NJ for the big show.

    -They had a laugh making fun of the people, their fashion choices and hairstyles. Life was good.

    -Years later, the internet is discovered...

    -There's a moral in there somewhere.

    -Come to think of it, Skrillex may indeed owe me some publishing on that hairdo...

    Based off the calendar at the end of the clip, it looks like it was broadcast on March 20, 1989. (I'm guessing the show was syndicated, meaning there's no "official" broadcast date.) This was probably filmed earlier in the month, or maybe in February. Depends on the lead time, although I'd imagine it didn't take much time or effort to edit this together. :P

    In any event, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! A PM is forthcoming.

    EDIT: Derp. Might be Nov. '89 instead. Makes more sense, really.

    This video is so great. On the surface, it looks pretty silly, but I fucking love that they took Nine Inch Nails to Dance Party USA. And I gotta say, even though the audience definitely made some unusual fashion choices, the band's choice of wardrobe is far better than most band getups in the late 80s & early 90s. Maybe this speaks something of my age, but I feel like jeans, tshirts, boots & leather jackets stand up pretty well even now.

    Given that early NIN played to backing tapes, someone ought to try syncing this up to an early live bootleg of DII.

    *edit* Trying it on for size myself. Also, eliminating the watermark (as best as I can, given the compression)
    *edit edit* Ha, this is awesome. I'll upload it soon.

    Trent's sense of humor on this is all you need to know about how cool of a guy he is. Instead of saying "FUCK YOU, TAKE IT DOWN IMMEDIATELY", he's humorous about it and is aware of how ridiculous it is. Dude just gained even more respect from me.

    That's a good point about the calendar. However, any 1989 dates would be too early for Lee Mars (not to mention too early for NIN's popularity). I think Aug. 20, 1990, is the most likely broadcast date for this (taping date was likely a week or two in advance). As Trent mentioned in his tweets, they made a special trip to film it, and it doesn't sound like they were on tour at the time (contrary to my earlier supposition). They finished touring on Aug. 4, 1990, so this would fit that timeline.
