** "The Wretched" from the album ''The Fragile'' contains the line: "Back at the beginning / Sinking, spinning..." which may be a reference to the title of the previous album ''The Downward Spiral'', as well as an early mention - perhaps the origin - of The Presence from ''Year Zero''.

* VocalEvolution: Trent's voice and style has changed a lot from the beginning, particularly in how deep it's gotten. This is most evident in ''[[ConceptAlbum Year Zero]]''.

In October 2016, in response to a fan's question about the lack of new Nine Inch Nails music, Reznor responded with "2016 is not over yet". In December, Reznor announced an extended play entitled ''Not the Actual Events'', released on December 23, 2016, while also confirming Atticus Ross is now a full time member of NIN, meaning the project is a duo and not just a Reznor project.

Nine Inch Nails is an {{Alternative|Rock}} / [[IndustrialMetal Industrial Rock]] act that's been rolling around the musical scene since 1988, releasing music videos which have ranged from politically subversive to the sort of video which answers the question: "What if ''Film/{{Hostel}}'' had been a set for music videos?"

They're somewhat unusual in that [[IAmTheBand it's essentially one man,]] Trent Reznor, who's done all of it. Most members have come and gone, occasionally contributing to albums but mostly staying for the live shows. (One such member, Richard Patrick, has struck out on his own and formed a little band you might've heard of, called Music/{{Filter}}.)

The music is surprisingly varied, from ear destroying screaming guitar death on ''Broken'' to beautiful, mellow piano pieces on ''Still'' and all kinds of twisted sounds in between; but most of it falls squarely under TrueArtIsAngsty.

In contrast to his highly brutal industrial rock output, Reznor in person is more of a MeanCharacterNiceActor, being very active in his community and generally a pretty nice guy. Also in the same vein, he was friends with Music/ToriAmos -- he even sang backing vocals on one of her songs (the past tense is Music/CourtneyLove's fault).

In the past few years, though, Reznor has instead focused on a project with his wife, Mariqueen Maandig, called Music/HowToDestroyAngels, as well as on film soundtracks. Along with Atticus Ross, Reznor has composed the score for ''Film/TheSocialNetwork,'' for which the duo won an [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscar]] for Best Original Music Score; 2011's ''[[Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo]]''; and 2014's ''Literature/GoneGirl''. [[HeAlsoDid Reznor also provided the soundtrack]] to ''VideoGame/{{Quake|I}}'' and recorded tracks for ''VideoGame/{{Doom}} 3'' that didn't make it into the final game, although they can still be found in the game files.
