Nine Inch Nails
Take one modern day pop star (Carly Rae Jepsen) with an incredibly infectious flavor of the year single. Now add in a classic slab of industrial angst-ridden darkness from Mr. Nine Inch Nails himself, Trent Reznor. You might think the results would be combustible, but somehow there's just something about PomDeter's mash-up known as 'Call Me a Hole' that draws us in like a moth to the flame.
It's been a busy year for Corey Taylor, who not only is promoting Stone Sour's upcoming 'House of Gold & Bones Part 2' album, but has also enjoyed some extra recognition for his collaboration with Dave Grohl, Rick Nielsen and Scott Reeder on the single 'From Can to Can't' that's part of the soundtrack for Grohl's 'Sound City' documentary. Loudwire recently spoke with Taylor, who revealed that he's thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with Grohl and still has a few names on his dream collaborator list.
In 2009, it appeared as though Nine Inch Nails' days as a touring band were coming to an end as Trent Reznor had revealed plans to retire from the road. The band played their epic "final show" on Sept. 10, 2009 and said their farewells, but luckily there were some fans around to capture the event for posterity and now a fan-made documentary has surfaced.
