big nin girl here. i found them back in high school (1993) when my boyfriend at the time sat me down in his bedroom and played 'something i can never have' for me, knowing that i would fall in love with it.

fave album: broken. trent at his angriest and loudest.

fave songs: something i can never have (obviously), sin, wish, happiness in slavery, physical, march of the pigs, the great below, into the void....

fave video: torn between wish and perfect drug

fave lyrics: happiness in slavery

*edited to add my love for 'i'm afraid of americans' with david bowie. cool video too.

Re: Any NIN fans around here?

Started listening to them around '92, right before Broken came out. My favorite album of his is TDS, a fucking sonic masterpiece along the lines of Pet Sounds or Sgt Peppers. A ukele played in kitchen sink? That's brilliant, he's got shit like that all over that album. Favorite songs? Uhh I don't know, Last, La Mer and Eraser among other more popular ones. Fav videos? Perfect Drug I suppose. Favorite lyrics? I don't know any specific off the top of my head that I would say are my favorite, The Becoming has some great stuff.

We had a party back in '94 for Woodstock and I can honestly say they blew every act off the stage by a country mile. Covered in mud baby, how incredible. Primus was #2

Trent needs to get off his ass and make an album.

Future Releases:
Guns and Roses-Chinese Democracy
NIN-bleedthrough

Yes Trent has to hurry up with this new album. Too many artists are trying to copy his work! I forgot to add The Big Comedown and I'm Afraid Of Americans (the video too) to my faves list. I need my Nin fix! I heard he performed Hurt with David Bowie during the Fragile tour. I was told its on the concert DVD.

I thought Bono was 5'7 or 5'8?
Maybe those shoes he wears adds to his height.

Larry, Bono and Trent covered in mud = priceless

you could be right on that, siren. apologies if i've wrongfully shortened bono.

i thought it was funny when i found out they were both... how shall i say... vertically challenged. in reality, i like my boys tall and scrawny, but i'd make exceptions for these two.

Me too! In reality I like my men about 5'11 and up. Of course I always end up with the opposite of what I want. I always thought U2 were about 5'10 and up. Larry and I are the same height! Television and music videos have tricked me again!

I was going to mention I'm Afraid of Americans, but it's a Bowie song.

Actually the video of Hurt w/David Bowie and Reeves Gabrels (his guitarist) is on Closure, which is actually the video package for the Downwards Spiral tour. When NIN opened for Bowie on the 95 tour. They would bring members of Bowies band on stage and NIN woud leave slowly, and vice versa. They were all on stage for the song Hallo Spaceboy (Bowie song) but they played parts of 6 or 7 songs. One of them is Hurt, and it's NIN w/Bowie singing and Gabrels playing some wicked guitar.

It's hauntingly beautiful, sadly, both Bowie and Cash did the song better than Trent did it, but he wrote it. I don't think he is much of a singer, but I still love NIN.

I have that on VHS, maybe the DVD if there is one, has more than that one performance, but that one by itself is worth the $15 or whatever I paid for it.
