** Trent Reznor was working on a collaboration with [[Music/ThrobbingGristle Peter]] [[Music/{{Coil}} Christopherson]] in the moments leading up to the latter's death--it only went as far as Reznor mailing him raw material to work with, as he died before he could return it with his own contributions.

** Trent isn't fond of "Big Man With a Gun" (which is probably why he never plays it live), nor is he fond of "Ruiner"; in a ''Guitar World'' interview released the month after ''The Downward Spiral'' was released, Trent admitted that "Ruiner" was the hardest song to write, and he still wasn't sure that he did it right.
* CreatorBreakdown: ''The Downward Spiral'' was made during a period where Trent was suffering a downward spiral of his own, induced by depression and drug abuse. Even when the album was released to mass acclaim, Trent was still unhappy due to disillusionment with his newfound fame

It would up bleeding into the sessions for ''The Fragile,'' and in fact, he admitted he was contemplating suicide while writing "La Mer."



* CutSong: "Just Do It," which was left off ''Music/TheDownwardSpiral'' at the advice of producer Creator/{{Flood}}, who considered it too "up front" about the act of suicide.

* CutSong: "Just Do It," which was left off ''Music/TheDownwardSpiral'' at the advice of producer Creator/{{Flood}}, who considered it too "up front" about the act of suicide. "The Beauty Of The Drug" is another song that didn't make that album, and it's possible they weren't even recorded.
** "The Warning" was cut from ''With Teeth.'' It's not confirmed as to whether it's the same "The Warning" that wound up on ''Year Zero.'' Also cut from ''With Teeth'' - "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bg76mSSzErs Non-Entity]]" and "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWdn9QYN4ag Not So Pretty Now.]]"

** TVT Records was rather upset with ''Pretty Hate Machine'' because Reznor refused to be turned into a second DepecheMode. Steve Gottlieb, TVT's founder, then tried to sabotage the recording of ''Broken'' and Trent's move to Interscope.
