    it basically is cartoon spinal tap, but more ridiculous. the plot of the episode is that rigby sees this and decides to change his name to "trash boat" but immediately regrets it. then The Urge travels back in time from the future where he is disgraced and attempts to kill rigby for stealing his thunder by changing his name to something cooler than "the urge"

    regular show is my favorite

    The DVD/VHS versions of "And All That Could Have Been: Live" are superior to the CD version.

    Maybe it's the Dolby (digital stereo or 5.1), maybe it's something else... but yeah. That's where I stand.

    Oh I agree - the CD version has that weird thing too where some things sound watery especially cymbals. My only complaint with the DVD audio is that it doesn't include The Day The World Went Away as a part of the main set.

    The Octopus bootleg of Woodstock 94 isn't that bad. Yeah, we can tell there were performance issues but as an overall capture of NIN live in that era, I think it holds up.

    Also, if anyone happens to have that "Live To Air" vinyl pressing and are willing to sell it, if the price is reasonable I'll take it off your hands. ... Same with "Pretty Hate Machine Sessions"

    Are there NIN songs you guys DON'T like?
    I don't mean ones your just tired of.

    I REALLY don't like THTF. I guess I kind of convinced myself I liked it when it came out?
    But, no.
    I actively dislike that shit. :/

    I preferred it when it appeared mid-set during the WT tour. Becoming a staple show closer made it become really tiresome for me.

    Not really. There may be songs that I don't listen to all that much (*cough* half of Pretty Hate Machine *cough*), but I can still find stuff I like about them. I mean, there's so much crap out there, so any Nine Inch Nails song is going to look like a diamond by comparison.

    I made a line out recording of this years ago, but does anyone have a proper rip of the audio from AATCHB?

    I hear you.
    I guess when I really think about it, there are aspects of THTF that I like. I wonder if it being overplayed fucked it up: I'm not sure.
    Half of PHM though, I'm different than some of you guys in that way, and it might have to do with my age.
    I LOOOOOVE ALL of that album, and I think a big part of it is because it was one of the only NIN albums available for awhile, when I was a kid, up until the MOTP single. So when I was 12 and 13 and really obsessed with music and NIN, you had your Broken, Fixed, PHM singles, and PHM. And it was sort of revolutionary for me, that album. It showed me that the same sort of production style and instruments that spawned like, Madonna and such, could be used in a different way. It sort of showed me that it wasn't JUST hip hop and traditional rock that could have some intensity and darkness about it.

    I will say this, though: I don't listen to HLAH on purpose anymore. I've just heard it too many times. I'm the same way with Down In It, to a lesser extent, and I'm getting there with Terrible Lie.

    Pretty much any song that gets overplayed is going to lose its effectiveness. Since you brought up The Hand That Feeds, I hadn't listened to it in full in a year or two, but I decided to play it last week, and I still enjoyed it. It's important to give some songs their distance. I rarely play Closer anymore, but when I do, I'm totally into it. Same with a lot of the singles and other well known tracks.

    What does proper mean?

    I ripped my DVD via Audio Hijack (24 bit, 192000 Hz) to AIFF and then edited it and transcoded to 24 bit 44.1 kHz ALAC. I think it sounds awesome but that doesn't mean it's proper.

    I wouldn't say dislike, but I haven't really been feeling Underneath It All for that longest time. I kept skipping it. There are parts of that song I actually love, but as a whole I just couldn't get into it that much. So perhaps that might count in some ways.

    Disappointed. Running.

    Hesitation Marks is the only album where I skip songs. The rest is all great.

    I have a few songs that no matter how many times I listen I just can't get into:

    March of the Fuckheads
    Please
    Complication
    The Collector
    Love Is Not Enough
    Vessel (although I like the remixes somehow)
    Came Back Haunted
    Disappointed (minus the guitar halfway in)
    Everything
    Running
    The Lovers

    There are a few other songs that I just kind of tolerate like No You Don't and Starfuckers and several of The Fragile instrumentals, but I don't flat out dislike them. The Fragile is my least favorite NIN album. that may be controversial

    i've said it before and i'll say it again - capital G is the worst song trent has written and i can not stand it.

    i've also said before that i much prefer the El-P remix of "only" to the original, because i don't really like the original very much.

    i can't listen to find my way. i let it play the first time i listened to HM digitally, and the one time i listened to it on vinyl. after that, never again.

    wow, @3knic some of those are some of my favorite NIN songs. it's always interesting how differently people feel about certain things.

    I think Capital G has a funky feel to it, although I think the phones and switch remixes are ear bleeders. The lyrics are kind of cheesy but fit the narrative he was going for

    The El-P remix of Only is definitely superior (and easily one of my favorite NIN remixes), heck the Richard X remix might be better than the original.

    Its definitely interesting to see what songs people like and don't like. I've always felt like a bit of an outsider with some of my NIN tastes, but I was at a weird stage in my life when The Fragile came out. I was super heavy into NIN from 94-96 as a kid but nothing else really sounded like NIN so I started listening to rap. I thought the TPD video was weird and kind of wrote NIN off for awhile. I borrowed TF from the library in maybe 2000 and ended up skipping most of the tracks. It requires a full deep listening and I just didn't give it that chance. I didn't really give TF a proper listen until 2005 when with teeth came out. While there are some amazing songs on there, the work as a whole just hasn't really resonated with me personally. Maybe because I wasn't there for it.

    I know I listed way more than tracks from TF but just wanted to give some back story. I do like Find My Way though. Takes a few listens to sink in. I think HM as a whole takes a few good listens. I did not initially like it but it has grown into one of my favorite albums over the past few years. Minus a few of the songs aforementioned

    The opening synth pulse beat thing is my text tone.

    Running, a lot of PHM falls flat for me now but I never liked Sanctified (especially the newer live version), lots of the remixes, Lights In The Sky, Discipline is a tad cheesy, The Greater Good, Another Version of the Truth, and as Iíve said before, I absolutely despise Iím Looking Forward To Joining You (Finally). Itís just drums, faint synth noise, and while the lyrics are good, theyíre delivered in an understated bland way much like the rest of the song.

    Funny enough if I do like any part of Please it is the ending, and I quite like how it goes into Appendage

    I forgot to mention Not So Pretty Now as a song that I do not care for. I absolutely love Non-Entity that came out at the same time but Not So Pretty Now is not so pretty!

    @Swykk , I don't have much love for Discipline, TBH, because of the aforementioned cheese factor, but I like it alright. I don't like "four on the floor" beats much.
    I, for instance, have a deep seated hatred of house music that I've been trying to get over for a long time. Like, I went to raves in my teens and early 20s, but i was always in the small tent: I was there for the Drum and Bass, and, to a lesser degree, the breaks (I made exceptions for Tiesto and Robert Miles and such.)

    This is why I utterly fucking ABHOR the Capitol G remix - the "drop drop drop drop the bomb" thing. Good GOD. THAT is the worst NIN track, for me, by FAR. JESUS.

    I don't understand the hatred for Lights in the Sky, though. It's just a pretty little piano ballad thing. Idk. It's not any kind of fleshed out, but I like it.
