    Yeah, you've got the gears in my head turning now. Halo Infinity brought up a good point about the anniversary. Hmmmm. Lemme think on this for a few days, because I really do think it would be something fun for the fanbase to do post-tour.

    Sorry, just saw this. No, nobody was taking any photos, people were just standing around (the Metro is two levels) drinking and ... listening to an album. I seemed to remember a video playing at some point, and there was some free swag.

    they played what is basically the "Collected" DVD before playing with teeth, they were giving out free 7" singles of THTF (right? or was it the 10" picture discs? i honestly can't remember).

    what i most remember is that it was POURING out before we got to go in and because i got drenched, a bunch of paint from the wall i was leaning against at the back of the venue rubbed off on to my pants/belt and forever discolored them a weird blue.

    it was a weird but fun experience going to a venue to get an early listen to an album with a bunch of strangers; overall i enjoyed it.

    For no reason other than my gut, I feel we get something NIN related by the end of this year. Maybe an EP? Live DVD/BluRay? Etc.

    It would certainly be quite the surprise if it actually turned out to be Pretty Hate Machine-related, especially with accompanying DVDs/BDs.

    It would be nice to get something, but I'm not getting my hopes up yet. This seems to be a busy year for Trent & Atticus in terms of non-NIN work.

    I thought there were some stickers or something?

    Edit: Per the Hotline on 3/28/05: “The free gifts were a small With Teeth poster, postcards and bumper stickers.”

    (Chicago was 3/30/05)

    A picture of the 7” THTF / Home is on the NIN Hotline with this note on 3/31/05:

    “Although most of the listening parties did not have the 7" vinyl readily available due to a manufacturing error, the party at San Francisco did. Featuring The Hand That Feeds on the A-side, and non-album track Home on the B-side, these undoubtedly going to be hot items to have. Here is the only picture we have of one. So far. Thanks to Cyndy for that!”



    The most fun part of the With Teeth era, IMO (besides the club tour), was the web cams during recording.

    This site has archives.

    This should get some facepalms, but it comes from the fact the Trent sometimes has a weird sense of humor, but I think he should post the "Old Town Road" video on NIN.com.


    Ok, maybe not nin.com, but maybe his Instagram or some other less meaningful social media place.

    That reminds me, has Trent, or even Atticus commented on Old Town Road yet?

    Yeah, Trent said:

It really made me think about how powerful music is as a medium and art form. I wrote some music in my bedroom as a way of staying sane, about a bleak and desperate place I was in, totally isolated and alone. Somehow that winds up reinterpreted by a music legend from a radically different era/genre and still retains sincerity and meaning – different, but every bit as pure.

    It's funny, because I seem to remember him saying this exact same thing when Limp Bizkit riffed on Closer.

    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.
