The 11 Best Nine Inch Nails Songs
I've been having a discussion with a friend of mine, his name is Barry, about who could win in a fight between Henry Rollins and Trent Reznor. Now, ten years ago, when Trent was a wastoid who weighed somewhere in the double digits, Henry Rollins could blow him down with his monster breath. But in the past few years, Trent has hit the gym in a major way and put on about 100 pounds of pure muscle. So, what was once a blow-out is now easily a primetime bout. Now my friend, Barry thinks Rollins could take Trent without much effort. His argument is that Rollins is crazy. If you ever saw him in his Black Flag days then it's easy to see that the guy could fly off the handle at any moment. That's all good and true...and I know Rollins could kick my butt any day of the week and Sunday...BUT, Trent's got something that could push him over the edge. Trent's a bit psychotic. The guy bought the Tate Mansion because he felt it would inspire him to write good music. He spent 5 years in a drug induced coma so he could write the Fragile. He sends hate mail to Guns N Roses message boards. And it only takes one listen of NIN's new CD Year Zero to know that the guy isn't firing on all cylinders. In a knock-down drag-out brawl, I give it to Trent by a nose.
