Trivia / Nick Cave

  • Black Sheep Hit:
    • "Where the Wild Roses Grow" from Murder Ballads made it to the top of several European charts and received much play on MTV. The video won an MTV Music Award which Cave politely declined by essentially stating "I don't believe art should be rated."
    • American audiences mostly know him as the singer of "Red Right Hand" from Let Love In which was featured in Hellboy, Dumb and Dumber, the Scream movies and The X-Files.
    • While Harry Potter fans may know him as the singer of "O Children", memorably used in Deathly Hallows Part 1.
  • Creator Breakdown: Led to the somber releases Your Funeral, My Trial, The Boatman's Call and Skeleton Tree.
  • Name's the Same: The Warren Ellis who plays with Cave and founded Dirty Three is not the British comics writer.
  • What Could Have Been: He wrote a script for Gladiator 2, where Maximus fought demons in Hades and lived long enough to see the 20th century ...huh.
