    NIN songs that would make good set closers

    Carrying over from a conversation in the 2022 tour thread.

    Aside from Hurt, Head Like A Hole, and In This Twilight (with the Zero-Sum outro) - what songs do you think would make good ends to shows? Mainly songs that have never been played as closers, though there are rare some occasions in which a song other than the main three ended a show.

    Some of these, mainly the heavier ones, could also replace Head Like A Hole as the last one before the encore:

    Gave Up
    Right Where It Belongs
    And All That Could Have Been
    Ringfinger
    Hurt (pre-encore, with a tape of the studio version's outro)
    The Background World (possibly with a jam that bears some resemblance to the loop)
    We're In This Together
    Burn
    Zero-Sum
    Over And Out (pre-encore, with a tape of the studio version's outro)
    While I'm Still Here/Black Noise
    The Day The World Went Away (AATCHB version).

    Mainly songs with dramatic climaxes and noise/jam/drone endings, though they can sometimes be swapped for softer endings by just TR&AR.

    Would Starfuckers Inc work?
    Got the slow soft bridge in the middle for a minute to breathe then punches you in the face one last time for the final chorus and outro?

    Something I Can Never Have worked too - although itís one hell of a downer to end on. Night of Nothing show soundboard ends with it and the Self Destruct thing that leaked a couple of months ago (which is still on heavy rotation )

    I think they closed I Do Not Want This a few times on that tour too.
