Context: During a gig in Philadelphia in 2005, Trent's mic frequently keeps cutting out while performing "Head Like a Hole" and the sound equipment has apparently been glitching out all night, this annoys him
Ever want to watch someone do the running man to "Down In It?" Well, here's NIN performing on a cheesy 1980s dance program, Dance Party USA.
Trent's comment on the footage is a nice bit of bonus funny.
Trent: Many years ago, a young and naive Nine Inch Nails were asked what TV shows they'd be interested in appearing on. As a joke (and likely drunk), they thought of the most absurd choice they could come up with at the time. They were then informed their bluff had been called and were actually booked on said show... They hopped in their Honda Civic touring vehicle (hatchback) and travelled many miles to (I think) NJ for the big show. They had a laugh making fun of the people, their fashion choices and hairstyles. Life was good. Years later, the internet is discovered... There's a moral in there somewhere. Come to think of it, Skrillex may indeed owe me some publishing on that hairdo...
Started out a 2013 show in the Netherlands with this:
Trent: How're you tonight? Having a good time? Ready to party, have fun? Yeah, well, that was the last guys. Wrong fuckin' band. We're here to have a bad time. *cues "Copy Of A"*
