Rare NIN Footage Humiliates Trent Reznor
Rare footage of Nine Inch Nails performing in the 1980s has appeared online, prompting frontman Trent Reznor to spill details on the backstory. Over a series of tweets, Reznor describes how their prank request to appear on a silly TV show backfired, both in the 1980s and today with the internet: "Many years ago, a young and naive Nine Inch Nails were asked what TV shows they'd be interested in appearing on. As a joke (and likely drunk), they thought of the most absurd choice they could come up with at the time. "They were then informed their bluff had been called and were actually booked on said show (thanks again Sioux Z). They hopped in their Honda Civic touring vehicle (hatchback) and travelled many miles to (I think) NJ for the big show. They had a laugh making fun of the people, their fashion choices and hairstyles. Life was good. "Years later, the internet is discovered... There's a moral in there somewhere." Watch a video of the performance right here. And check out Reznor's hairdo - recognise anything? Reznor sure does, as you can see in the tweet below:
