Awesome: Nine Inch Nails
  • The glorious sucker-punch cry of defiance that is "No, You Don't." It starts out with some fairly generic pain-doom-angst lyrics, then unexpectedly turns around. It is incredibly refreshing.
  • Their performance at Woodstock 94 is considered to be the highlight of the entire festival and the moment that catapulted Reznor to superstardom.
  • "The Great Destroyer" has this "World of Cardboard" Speech listed on the main page: "I hope they cannot see the limitless potential / living inside of me to murder everything / I hope they cannot see I am the GREAT DESTROYERRRRRR..." Coming out of the guy who created The Downward Spiral and wallowed in angst and depravity for much of The Nineties, this is kind of a triumphant moment for Trent Reznor.

Awesome Music:

  • Basically, fans will argue any full-length from 1989-1999 to be Reznor's Magnum Opus.
  • Year Zero, a grim Concept Album composed muchly on Reznor's laptop and featuring arguably some of his most visceral work in years. It's by far his most critically acclaimed work of the 2000s.
