"Bow down before the one you serve / You're going to get what you deserve." That line became famous thanks to an angst-ridden youngster named Trent Reznor and his band Nine Inch Nails. But a lot has changed for Reznor over the years and he reflected on how his music and perspective has shifted with age in a new interview with The Daily Record.
This year's Grammy Awards were closed by Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham., but the all-star gig was cut short on television when closing credits and sponsors were shown instead of the end of the performance. You can watch rehearsal video of the entire performance above, but in a new interview, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor lashes out at Grammy organizers, vowing never to return and calling it "an utter waste of time."
The 2014 Grammy Awards was yet another successful broadcast of the annual event, but within the worlds of rock and metal, a tremendous amount of controversy and perceived disrespect caused a heated worldwide conversation. Most spiteful amongst Grammy performers this year was undoubtedly Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor, who offered a strong "F--- You" to the Grammys, but now the award show's Executive Producer has offered a public apology to Reznor.
If it's not broke, don't fix it. And it's safe to say that the partnership of film director David Fincher with Nine Inch Nails and How to Destroy Angels mastermind Trent Reznor and his HTDA partner Atticus Ross is definitely not broken. Reznor and Ross have signed on to score their third movie for Fincher, 'Gone Girl,' which is expected in theaters later this year.
2013 has been a big year for Trent Reznor, with the return of Nine Inch Nails and the full-length album debut of How to Destroy Angels. Now he's looking to kick off 2014 with a major launch as well. Beats Music, the new music streaming service from Reznor and music mogul Jimmy Iovine, will officially arrive in January.
