Trent Reznor has got to hate YouTube. Several embarrassing videos of the industrial rock icon from his pre-Nine Inch Nails days have surfaced on the video sharing site in the past couple of years, but now an hilarious clip of Reznor lip-syncing the NIN track 'Down In It' on '80s television is making the rounds online.
Nine Inch Nails
Nine Inch Nails orchestrator Trent Reznor has not only broken boundaries with his music, but with his tactics regarding the music industry, as well. Reznor was one of the first mainstream musicians to actively take on and attack what he saw as unfair practices within the music industry. In a newinterview with TuneCore, Reznor again goes in-depth with his music industry analysis.
With all the awards and nominations Trent Reznor has been receiving for his soundtrack work on both 'The Social Network' and 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,' it was beginning to look like the industrial-rock king had found an entire new career. But get your heads out of those holes, Nine Inch Nails fans -- Reznor now says he will devote 2012 to writing a new NIN album.
Earlier today (Sept. 22), Trent Reznor posted a message on Twitter, saying, “A taste of what we’ve been up to” with a link to the new trailer for ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.’ Reznor and his musical partner Atticus Ross were recruited to compose the score for the upcoming movie, and it’s no wonder why. The duo picked up an Academy Award for their work on ‘The Social Network’ raising his stock in the ‘music for movies’ world.
Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor picked up an Oscar for his score work on 'The Social Network' and his ominous audio set the tone for the film, making the Academy Award well-earned and deserved. Reznor is currently working on the score for David Fincher's much anticipated remake of 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' and a lengthy sample of the score appears on the film's official website along with a graphic image of stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara.
