THE industrial rock band. All music written by Trent Reznor. Has some of the most penatrating lyrics of any music I've heard.
How could I
ever think
it's funny how
everything you swore would never change is different now.
like you said
you and me
make it through
didn't quite
fell apart

Nine Inch Nails was a one-man-band fronted by Trent Reznor. With influences such as Ministry, he successfully debuted with his first full-length studio album "Pretty Hate Machine." Fed up with greedy record label bullshit, he made his own label, and released the highly successful Grammy-Award winning Broken EP. He then peaked with his follow-up, The Downward Spiral, getting huge hits such as Closer, March of the Pigs, and Hurt. This was followed by cocaine abuse and rehab for about 5 years, until he returned with an album some find okay, and some find brilliant "The Fragile." He then went on to release "With Teeth" "Year Zero" and his final album "The Slip." He has just recently found new commercial success as a movie soundtrack artist, mainly recognized for winning an Oscar with Atticus Ross for the (also award winning) film, the Social Network.
Black Guy: Whats your favorite Nine Inch Nails song?

Me: Just about anything from Broken to the Downward Spiral. He released some pretty good stuff afterward though.

Some retarded ass fucking band made up by the biggest homo in the world Trent Reznor. Some old, fat, lazy fuck!

Another name for the band could be Nine Inch Cocksuckers. You get it? Hes a homo and he likes to suck Nine Inch Cocks.

I wonder why he named it Nine Inch Nails. No wait I do, Its because he likes to nail nine inch cocks all day.
Person 1: Hey do you like Nine Inch Nails?

Person 2: No way they suck dick!

Person 1: Yea they do.

Trent Reznor: Your right I love it!

A: Marijuana is usually smoked as a cigarette (called a joint or a nail) or in a pipe or a bong.

If marijuana is a nail... then
"I sure wish I had a few Nine Inch Nails," says Stoner 1.
"I think you have a few nine ince tails," said Stoner 2.

A shitty "industrial" band that stole from real industrial bands like skinny puppy. Real Industrial music was never meant to be mainstream. My sister's boyfriend said that Trent Reznor has his own record label because no other label would accept him. All the other record companies thought he was a poser. There is nothing unique about this band besides from the fact that it is the only industrial band that most people know about. The music sounds weak compared to other less-known bands. The only people who listen to Nine Inch Nails are preppy teenagers, people who are trying to be unique, and people who haven't found real industrial music yet.
I hate Nine Inch Nails because my bitchy stepmom talked about how they were pioneers of the Industrial music scene.

So this fag named Trent Reznor is worshipped as a music god bescause he can "sing" the gay "OMG they are so deep and emotional and penetrating LAWLZ, I <3 T.R. 4 Lyfe "lyrics some corporation (probably Virgin Records or RCA) wrote for him and tells him to sing. He is the Ashley Simpson of industrial rock or whatever the fuck his gay music is called. Its not heavy, its not metal, its just plain shit. Who cares if he can play the keyboard and yell and scream and throw temper tantrums on stage, Trent Reznor is just a fag who does drugs, sucks the dick of the singer of pearl jam and supposedly writes songs about profound topics, but they are all really about how badly he misses getting raped by his drunk uncles. Now he is worshipped by mall goths who cant like a band unless they have at least two of that bands shirts in black from hot topic.
