    Chronological order, one song per album maximum, The Trilogy treated like a full album, no remixes:

    Terrible Lie (live)
    Happiness In Slavery
    The Becoming
    Where Is Everybody?
    Leaving Hope
    Beside You In Time
    The Great Destroyer
    Head Down
    In Two
    The Background World

    Top 10 honorable mentions:

    Kinda I Want To (demo)
    Ruiner
    Closer To God
    The Art of Self Destruction, Part One
    Somewhat Damaged
    The Way Out Is Through
    Slipping Away
    Vessel
    Dear World,
    I'm Not From This World

    There were many, many songs left off that I would have liked to include.
    If I allowed remixes, The Art of Self Destruction, Part One would be my number one.

    wow this is hard.

    i think these are my 10 all time-faves of nin right now:

    into the void
    please
    the becoming (still)
    even deeper
    beside you in time (tie with "the great below")
    she's gone away
    somewhat damaged
    sunspots
    ahead of ourselves
    demon seed

    the minus-songs (songs i can't stand anymore):

    head like a hole
    god given
    survivalism
    the hand that feeds
    burn
    satelite

    nearly top 10: everything, the wretched, burning bright, echoplex, your touch, i do not want this, hurt

    I really like the 2013 version of Sanctified, too. I think the current touring band is my favorite but the 2013 band was very cool. I just listened to a tape of G n R when Robin & Buckethead were in the band. I saw that tour & it was way better than expected. Was nice to see Robin in a different guise.

    You don’t often see No, You Don’t on many people’s lists. I like that. Would you add “Feeders” to it?

    I just realised how more impactful “This Is Not The Place” sounds when you de-abbreviate the “is” and “not”.

    Trying to do this from the top of my head, as that's probably more truthful than looking it up at last.fm etc.

    - wish
    - terrible lie
    - head like a hole
    - the wretched
    - copy of a
    - me I'm not
    - came back haunted
    - even deeper
    - heresy
    - last

    Well, lots of old an new "favorites" (perfect drug, burn, less than) missing, but a pretty good spread across the different eras I think.

    whoops! didn't realize i did that. i guess it was wishful thinking because you're right, the title is more impactful that way.

    i believe @r_z labeled the tracks in the reverse of how they are normally listed, so those songs would actually be "7 Ghosts I" and "16 Ghosts II" and as i'm typing this i realize that you were probably joking

    Pretty fantastic choices here, but "Big Man" seems like an odd choice compared to the other songs, lol.
    It's like "One of these things is not like the other"

    I know Big Man With a Gun isn't the best NIN song and it's called out for its lyrics, but I gotta, I enjoy it a whole hell of a lot! I just love the vibe and the chaos of it all.

    Obviously hard to do. Right now, my favorite NIN albums are Broken and Bad Witch, but no songs from those two albums crack what are my favorite songs right now. I burn my first 6 on Fragile era songs and 5 of those 6 have been my favorites since 2001-ish.
    The Day The World Went Away (Any version, but for this list I will say the CRC version)
    Where Is Everybody
    The New Flesh (and version a)
    Was It Worth It (it is weird to think about The Fragile starting from a place of cheap electronics and broken/out of tune strings, obviously the finale product sounds way more polished/focused, but these extra tracks from Deviations really highlight the skeletal bones of The Fragile, this is one that I wish had made it onto the album as an instrumental or with lyrics)
    Slipping Away (This space could have been used by Into The Void because I love that song, but I will always remember how awesome it was to get a new version equally as good but different, Things Falling Apart could have been an amazing record if they just would have added a couple other oddities or even another cover, it is good as is, but a few more tracks would have made the 3 Starfuckers mixes not overwhelm the rest, they should have named at least one of the Starfuckers mixes a different name too)
    Deep (I have been defending this song AND video since 2001)
    Dear World
    The Lovers

    A Warm Place/Eraser (counting them as one song)
    12 Ghosts II (There are days when this is my favorite NIN song ever)
    Theme from Tetsuo The Bullet Man
