In 2009, Nine Inch Nails played a 37-song farewell concert. Here's your chance to re-live that. (more…)
I recently got to watch the Sound City documentary, and it's a pretty great film, if you're a music buff. My favorite portion of the doc is the last act, where it's basically Grohl inviting all these people to jam with him for what would become the Sound City soundtrack, Real to Reel.
The one performance that absolutely stands out is the one by Grohl with Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor on the keys and Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme on the bass. They create magic together: (more…)
Trent Reznor never really struck me as a funny guy, mainly because I just picture him sitting behind a bank of computers 24/7 making sweet jams that are 20 years ahead of their time. Yesterday he ruined that for me.
Who would've thought that "Call Me, Maybe?" and "Head Like A Hole" would work so well together? But they do! Listen to this new mashup: (more…)
In 2009, Trent Reznor announced that Nine Inch Nails would be retiring from active touring. Four years later, NIN are coming out of retirement. Reznor announced plans today for the band to tour extensively in 2013 and 2014. Here is his new message: (more…)

Trent Reznor Says New NINE INCH NAILS Is Coming, Possible Touring Too; HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS EP Streaming
A whopping heap of new Trent Reznor news. Let's have a dance party. Trent Reznor "retired" Nine Inch Nails in 2009 from live touring, and basically, the band has been inactive since then. Until now! In a new interview with Rolling Stone (who are all of the sudden relevant again), Trent says NIN is coming: (more…)
There is no doubt that band tattoos are the ultimate sign of appreciation and loyalty for your favorite artists, it's like a band T-shirt you can't get off. I also have no doubt that metal heads are some of the most passionate group of music enthusiasts out there, so it came as no surprise that I could find thousands of band tats out there ranging from a tiny mark to a full sleeve. The only problem with this awesome combination is tattoo artists in the world are much like the bands themselves, some are good, some are simply amazing, and others… well here is a list of some of the others guys. (more…)
Trent Reznor is living the nerd dream. Sure, he's one of the coolest motherfuckers on the planet, but the dude is ultimately a nerd at heart. He likes playing with gadgets and video games, keeps up with rising computing technologies and yet manages to maintain his cool, marrying a smoking hot wife, having one of the best rock/industrial bands ever and now working completely on his own terms.
His next project is now known. Reznor has scored the new Call Of Duty: Black Ops II game. This won't be Reznor's first foray into gaming music, as he worked on music for Quake and Doom 3 and he's created an "aggressively sounding" track for the new video game. Here is a quote he gave to USA Today about working with the COD people: (more…)
Today's random Youtube discovery is that of Nine Inch Nails performing on Dance Party USA. How the hell did this even happen? Reznor chimed in via Twitter explaining the whole situation, and having a good laugh about it: (more…)
Above you will find the full cover featuring Karen O, with Trent and Atticus absolutely crushing Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song." Not just anybody could pull something like this off, so I am definitely excited to hear the promised 6-CD score for the movie. I'm sure this is probably the least-droney of all the material, but still Reznor has proved himself with me and I am all in. Right now, you can download a six song sampler of the score, and then get the full thing on December 9th. Get all the info you need right here.
I think it takes a lot of balls to cover Led Zeppelin. In my personal opinion, their songs are absolutely 100% perfect, so to alter them in any way and make it live up to the original is quite the task. Today, I stumbled upon two different interpretations of their famous "Immigrant Song," both uniquely original, and quite entertaining. (more…)
Is this not the most awesome meeting ever? NIN frontman Trent Reznor got some face time with Batman!!!!! This is presumably at one of the after parties where both were celebrating their Oscar wins. Epic photo! [via]
I really need to stop watching awful award shows. I happened to be visiting my parents last night and assumed this would be a decent distraction from any interaction with them. Not. worth. it. The one bright spot of the award show was seeing Trent fucking Reznor and his partner in crime, Atticus Ross win an Academy Award. Trent Reznor… the dude who wants to 'fuck you like an animal' is an Oscar winner. Pretty surreal moment! While I personally thought that Hans Zimmer deserved the prize for his stellar work with the Inception score (fuck, there was nothing I didn't love about that movie), I still found myself very excited to see Reznor and Ross up there. Then again, the Three Six Mafia are also Oscar winners so maybe I shouldn't be that surprised.
To keep Trent in check, let's take a look back to a time before Nine Inch Nails. You think the Trent Reznor in the below video thought to himself, "One day, I will be an Academy Award winner!" (more…)
