* {{Anvilicious}} / SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Depending on who you ask, ''Year Zero'' is this. Same with "The Hand That Feeds", which while an awesome "Stick it to the man" song, really ends up ruined when you know it's towards then-President George W. Bush.

* GrowingTheBeard: While Pretty Hate Machine is beloved, many think that NIN started to really come into their own around the Broken EP or The Downward Spiral.

* SignatureSong: "Closer" is the top candidate, but "Head Like a Hole", "Wish", "Hurt", and "The Hand That Feeds" are also common.

* TheWoobie: Trent Reznor, ''full stop''. May also veer into IronWoobie, considering he was able to keep himself sane for so many years before finding happiness.

* TheWoobie: Trent Reznor, ''full stop''. May also veer into IronWoobie, Putting aside {{Wangst}}, you ''feel'' for the man. Does reach a EarnYourHappyEnding considering he was able to keep himself sane for so many years before finding happiness.became sober, got married, and has two kids now. And ya know, ''[[FanService he got ripped]]''.

** A big contention among fans is whether any of the albums post-''With Teeth'' are as good as the ones that came before. A lot of the contention comes from the fact that the lyrical content and especially Trent's vocal style are vastly different than ''Music/TheDownwardSpiral'' and ''The Fragile''.

The only release with no mixed results was ''Not the Actual Events'', which has become universally praised.

** Trent Reznor's scream from the title track of Music/TheDownwardSpiral may sound disturbing... unless if you think [[AgonyOfTheFeet he just accidentally step on a LEGO]] or [[AmusingInjuries stub his toe on a table]].

* MemeticMutation: "Closer" is this, regarding it's lyrics like "[[BestialityIsDepraved I want to fuck you like an animal]]".

*** "HappinessInSlavery", the most (in)famous video, shows a man stripping naked and situating himself in a device that graphically eviscerates his body (inducing both great pain and [[TooKinkyToTorture pleasure]]), including [[GroinAttack ripping off his penis]], and ends with the man being ground to provide fertilizer for a garden of some sort.

** Also, the song "Hurt" falls into this regarding it's very fitting use in the ending of Season 2 from WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: All of his albums have gone through this on some level, particularly more recent ones. Apparently, now that he's gotten clean, is [[BabiesEverAfter married with two kids]], is, in his own words, the happiest he's ever been, and his music isn't as full of {{angst}} as it once was, Trent's lost his mojo, which carries some UnfortunateImplications.

* FreudWasRight: Some fans interpret the gun imagery in ''Music/TheDownwardSpiral'' as this.
** The "Closer" video was purposefully filled with plenty of references to this trope.
--->'''Mark Romanek, the director''': "I like how the front of [the microphone] looks like a little nipple."
