In honor of this amazing trip, I’m busting out my top 5 Nine Inch Nails songs. Be aware some of these videos are NSFW (not safe for work).
Wish appears on the bands 1992 EP Broken. They won Best Metal Performance at the 1993 Grammys for this one.
Hurt appears on NIN’s 1994 full length release The Downward Spiral. The song was nominated for a Grammy but lost to Alanis Morissette. In 2002, the song was covered by Johnny Cash.
The Hand That Feeds
The Hand That Feeds was released on 2005’s With Teeth album. The songs is NIN’s most successful radio song, spending 5 weeks on top of the modern rock charts. Many consider this to be the band’s comeback.
Head Like a Hole
Head Like A Hole appears on Nine Inch Nail’s 1990 debut album Pretty Hate Machine and was released as the second single.
Another track from 1994’s Downward Spiral album. While the song failed to achieve the radio success of The Hand That Feeds, the song is widely considered to be the bands most popular song.
