“This Is A Trent Reznor Song” Is An On Point Parody Of Nine Inch Nails

Trent Reznor Song Parody
Are We Sure This Is A Parody?

You guys, I love Trent Reznor and am a huuuuuge Nine Inch Nails fan. Like, I have stopped being friends with people because they said something mean about Trent once at a party when they were drunk and “Capital G” started playing on the host’s iPod shuffle. And despite my fierce loyalty for Trent (or perhaps because of it?), I cannot stop laughing at this amazing NIN parody song/video from comedian Freddy Scott. Everything about it — from the music to the lyrics to the strange, dark video — is absolutely perfect. [Rolling Stone]

Trent Reznor Calls Terminally Ill NIN Fan During Concert, Dedicates “In This Twilight” To Him

Trent Reznor Calls Terminally Ill Fan From Stage
"I miss you, man. I wish you were here."

Two years ago, OC Weekly concert photographer Andrew Youssef was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. Two months ago, his oncologists informed him that his diagnosis was terminal. They gave him weeks — maybe months, if he was lucky — to live.¬†Throughout his cancer battle, Youseff kept shooting concerts and writing about his experience in a column called “Last Shot.” He also continued to find comfort in music, especially his favorite band, Nine Inch Nails. Somewhere along the line, NIN’s frontman, Trent Reznor, caught wind of Youssef’s story and invited him to a rehearsal for their Tension 2013 world tour.

Reznor and Youssef had lunch together, talked about everything from “Breaking Bad” to how much cancer fucking sucks, and quickly became friends. Keep reading »

NIN Came Back Haunted
Hit play to listen to "Came Back Haunted"!

The best way to start your day? Turns out it’s not coffee or morning sex; it’s a surprise song release from Nine Inch Nails! Trent posted the first single from NIN’s upcoming album “Hesitation Marks” (due out September 3rd) on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube this morning.

Trent, it’s so good to have you back. [YouTube]

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Trent Reznor, Circa 1994

I love every incarnation of Trent Reznor–awkward teen Reznor, super angry twenty-something Reznor, slightly bloated Reznor who was really into vests, even tuxedo-wearing Oscar-winning Reznor is OK with me. But I think we can all agree that early ’90s Reznor is really where it’s at. Screaming the lyrics to “Closer” with that Severus Snape haircut? So hot.

After the jump, check out the essential components of an old school Reznor outfit, from ripped up jeans to military jacket. Sex obsession and steely glare optional. Keep reading »

Trent Reznor’s Ideal Wedding Ring

Buzzfeed says it best: “Someone in Germany was so bored he/she turned a bunch of bands such as Nine Inch Nails, Vampire Weekend and Bat for Lashes into costume jewelery.” But while we appreciate the art project aspect of it and all (go see the Animal Collective one, it’s cute), we’d really appreciate it if this dude/chick would start selling them.

Get Your Rocks Off: Happy Birthday Bowie!

Forget Christmas. On this day in history, the glam messiah, David Bowie, was born. Although it isn’t one of those official holidays recognized by the Post Office and the bank, January 8, 1947, was, in fact, a day that literally rocked our world! While we have no confirmation that Bowie danced himself right out of the womb wearing platform pumps and guyliner, the man we’ve come to know and love has influenced many of his fellow artists. Hit songs like “Rebel Rebel,” “Heroes,” and “Fashion” have stood the test of time, just like his good looks. Damn, the dude still looks slick in a suit at 62! So, to celebrate this special day, we compiled a playlist of bands and musicians who also worship the Thin White Duke, after the jump…

Rock-A-Bye Baby: Hookup Music For The Kiddies!

When it’s sexy time, it’s also time to take off your clothes and put on some sweet tunes — like the Pixies, right? Cause you know when I put on the Surfer Rosa record it is time to get busy. Sadly, now my hip, hot record collection favorites are being marketed towards new parents so they can bring the classics of classic rock to their kids. Awwww…ugh. [Simcha, you know you think that baby with the headphones is a-dor-a-ble. -- Editor] Rockabye Baby is a company dedicated to turning the rock, metal, and pop songs you like to do it to into precious little lullabies. That’s right, the same jams that put you in the mood for baby makin’ have been remade for your little bundle of joy. Creepy! When the album you lost your virginity to is on the list (i.e. Nirvana’s Nevermind) it just seems like another sign that you’re are supposed to be squeezing out lil’ screamers by now. But alas, for those actually with mini-me’s the music series features great artists like Led Zeppelin, No Doubt, Bjork, Radiohead and yes, even Metallica, Tool, and Queens of the Stone Age all done over again soft and sweet for nap time. Nicole Richie and Scott Baio spin them for their celebuspawn, because after all, it’s never to early to teach your kid how to headbang to a xylophone heavy rendition of Nine Inch Nails’ The Hand That Feeds.
