    Yeaaaahhhhhh, about that. I think there was a healthy level of sarcasm from Trent there that went over a lot of heads.

    it's a quote about johnny cash covering hurt that @fillow took and edited to make it seem like it was about old town road.

    Add Violence is my personal favorite out of "Them Three", as I call them. A long time passed without me listening to NIN at all, but one listen to "The Lovers" and... whoa. I'm there again. The guitars. The choppy synths. The atmosphere. Like JJJ's son told Mary Jane in Spider-Man 2, "I'm back on the moon". It feels like going back home after a very stressful day. I'm back to the wonderful, magical, grotesque, dark™, endlessly manipulated yet still "human" and "analog"-feeling realm of TR and AR.

    And I'll say it again: "Less Than" is one of NIN's greatest singles, ever.

    Let me get this straight...

    A sample of an instrumental song from an experimental double LP Trent put out in 2008 has gone straight to number one worldwide as a country-hip hop number.

    ...AND

    A spoof cover of Head Like a Hole with a fake artist name by Myley Cyrus changing all the lyrics is now trending and will probably chart very high too...

    In the same year?

    What the actual fuck?

    Just once, I want to see NIN play the original album version of Closer live. I know it was done to death prior to ~05-06. But I don't think it's been done once since - and I never got to see them prior to that. Don't get me wrong, the version they've been doing is great. I just....man, the original breakdown is so fucking good. I want to see that live.

    Alas, I know it'll never happen.

    I am actually all about this post. The original is so perfect.

    This has been an unlikely amazing year for NIN.

    I wonder if some unused songs from The Downward Spiral were re-appropriated for Antichrist Superstar in the same way that some of the Lost Fragile tracks became Niggy Tardust. Some of that album sounds almost identical to TDS, albeit with different vocals.

    Agreed. I would love to hear the original breakdown again. It's one of the main reasons it's in my top 10.

    It's possible though, look at all of the stuff he's busting out now. Never thought we'd hear Happiness is Slavery yet we got a kickass version of it.

    Reznor liked a tweet about yoga on Twitter and now I'm wondering if he can do a chin stand. Namaste Trent!

    Okay I think I have heard all I can take about Old Town Road and Miley Cyrus. Nothing against either, but I could really use some more actual NIN discussion. I know there isn't any news right now, and maybe that's a good thing - keep us wanting more, etc. - but i look forward to hearing more about what people are mining from the recent Trilogy or anything else that isn't pop culture.

    Get off my lawn!

    Head Like A Hole (Opal) is the best mix of the song.

    Incorrect, it's this (the Carly Rae mashup) — and I'm 90% sure that's where Black Mirror's writers got the idea for Ashley O.

    Ghosts 12 should’ve somehow, someway been incorporated into and played live during the LITS tour. One of the better songs off Ghosts and could’ve fit into it so many different ways.

    I'm still salty the album hasn't had a track played in Europe yet. But yes, 12 Ghosts is the fucking bomb and could work so well as an alternative to Pinion for an opener

    I feel this!

    I'm glad to see NIN get some exposure, sure, but after the whole Trilogy release cycle and its pervading aura of "we're not worried what people think, this is what we're excited about and that's what we're doing", all the "limited official collaborative T-shirt" kind of stuff we've been seeing from the NIN camp lately feels distressingly like a back-step towards Hesitation Marks' era of worrying too much about general relevance and putting an emphasis on reaching a wider audience (which I think the move to Columbia Records at that period neatly exemplified). Which isn't to say I have anything against NIN being featured in Captain Marvel or Old Town Road or Black Mirror (I thought Miley's covers were dreadful but you know, different strokes), just that I think it seems to be making a lot out of a little.

    We've been NIN spoiled the past couple years and I don't expect crazy activity constantly but to me the Bird Box soundtrack is way more exciting than any of this stuff because it's actual content.

    EDIT: I did love Strobe Light though!

    It's just annoying because I'll get people asking me if I think it's cool because they know NIN is my favorite band and I don't give a shit about rap or pop music or the MCU.

    how's this for an "attitude adjusted" concept: Trent & Atticus under pseudonyms become svengali pop producers & subvert the whole fucking thing. I'm pretty sure Miley would be game & there's a couple of others that have that potential. Seriously, I would like to hear a studio record with last year's touring band all involved in a capacity larger than a cameo appearance. Man(woman) for man, I don't think there are any bands out there that can touch that lineup. It would be interesting to hear what came of it.

    12 Ghosts is one of the coolest songs from Ghosts, and I definitely agree that it could be used in some interesting ways live

    I'm 100% here for that, not just Miley but go for a tonne of artists, Calvin Harris/Mark Ronson style - but you forget that Atticus HAS worked in pop

    If it's real songs and not glorified parodies, i could go for that. The Black Mirror tracks do nothing for me. I'd enjoy them a lot more with all of the correct, original lyrics.
