    Forgot About Them For A Bit

    I enjoyed listening to Nine Inch Nails in high school. When I joined the military I would listen to The Downward Spiral in my room and my roommate would always say it sounded like a bunch of cats scratching things. Then I just stopped listening to them for about 10 years and...

    An Awkward Nin Moment...

    Okay so waaay back in the day-early 90's- I quite liked a bit of NIN. A housemate was a pretty big fan so I-and the rest of the street!- got to hear a fair amount of them.... Fast forward about 10 years I had moved to the country and had a radio show on the local community...

    Heaven In My Ears

    If you look up the word angel, Trent's name should be the first thing that pops up. Honestly, that man can sing plus he is pretty hot. There isn't really much to say the title of this experience pretty much sums up everything, When I listen to the song "Closer by NIN" I can't...

    Had my mp3 on shuffle like most days

    and just stopped at N.I.N. and decided to just listen to it solely. I am not a big procurer of music or know much about genres, but as far as industrial sound I couldn’t get over how much Reptilian is such a great representation of the genre. I can see how for non fans it can...

    Got Me Thru a Bad Time

    Tangled

    What I admire the most about Mr. Trent Reznor is his ability to so subtly articulate all these complicated emotions. Whenever I'm in an emotional downward spiral, pun intended, I feel all my emotions as an extremely tangled mess of a hundred thousand wires and most music is just...

    Then I Knew

    I've liked NIN ever since I can remember. But when I heard "Lights in the Sky" and "Something I Can Never Have (from the album Still)" I grew to really love them. Trent Reznor's voice is amazing. He sings with such emotion it's almost as if he can make you...

    I love the Fragile album the most.

    For a few reasons I think. It was the first NIN album I really listened to and owned. I listened and listened and listened and still listen to it. I love the darkness and frustration and pain and confusion of that album. Trent's lyrics are great and the music that goes with them...

    Pretty Hate Machine

    I've never loved every single song on an album, till I heard Pretty Hate Machine. Since, I've fallen in love with other songs from them. Lately, not so much.  I mean, the ones I hear end up being ones I like, but they're harder for me to find.

    Without NIN, Everything Falls Apart....

    In the summer of 93, I was a freshman in high school. I won tickets to a concert, and got to go see Poison, Damn Yankees, and Firehouse. I thought that that was the most kickass thing ever. Then it was 96. I went to Carver Hawkeye Arena in Iowa city to see a band called Nine...

    It makes me sad a lot of times when I talk to people about Nine Inch Nails, especially ones who claim to be fans. "Oh, they're the ones who sing I want to **** you like an animal right"? I just shrug it off and tell them yeah, they "sing" it. When I get pissed, I'll let them...

    Nine Inch Nails is easily the best thing that has ever happened to me.  Trent Reznor is easily the most influental musician in my life.  Pretty Hate Machine was the first serious music that I as a child took a liking too. (I had to listen to my brother's because I didn...

    Can't Decide

    My two favorite songs are both so amazing that I can't pick. Something I can never have, and Hurt. Both tracks move me to no end. I only have seen Reznor live twice, but it was enough to say that he is a music genius. Music today just doesn't compare, oddly enough including his...

    Hesitation Marks - About To Hear It Friday Night

    any verdicts on the new album? I have read favorable reviews so far I love the story behind the title the statement of that. I am a NIN tragic I have wallpaper on my phone every album although I thought Trent had reached his use by date perhaps he ain't done with us just yet.
