Nine Inch Nails, Joan Jett And The Blackhearts, Green Day and More Earn Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Nominations

Pioneering punk rockers Green Day, Joan Jett and DiC faves Nine Inch Nails are just two of the bands that are eligible for introduction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for 2015. In order to be eligible, artists must have made their first recordings 25 years ago. Green Day’s ‘1,000 Hours and NIN’s influential ‘Pretty Hate Machine were both released in 1989.

Also included on the list of nominees are The SmithsStingBill WithersN.W.A. and the late Lou Reed. Like Sting, who was inducted in 2003 with The Police, Reed already has a spot in the museum with The Velvet Underground, but I think his recent death will earn him a solo spot. I’m sure NIN won’t have a problem getting in either, and it’d be great to see ten time nominees Nile Rodgers and Chic get some much deserved recognition.

The inductees will be announced at the end of the year, with the induction ceremony taking place on April 18th, 2015 in Cleveland, Ohio. You have until December 9th to add your vote to the “fan ballot” over at


How on EARTH can "Pretty Hate Machine" be 25 years old?
How on EARTH can “Pretty Hate Machine” be 25 years old?

I think you know who we’ll be voting for, but who will you be giving the extra push to? Let us know!

Bow down before the one you serve--indeed. Unf.


Trent Reznor Talks About Scoring David Fincher’s ‘Gone Girl’


Nine Inch Nails is currently touring through the UK, but Trent Reznor had some time to talk about working with David Fincher again for the upcoming adaptation of ‘Gone Girl.’ El Rez and Atticus Ross teamed up again to score the movie, which he described as “nasty.” Well, he would know.

During a stop in Finland, Reznor told  Entertainment Weekly that him and Ross had worked on the score off and on during the year, and hopes it will be ready before the film’s release in the Fall.

I’ve seen the film a number of times, and we’re deep into the integration part of it. I would hope by the time we leave for Soundgarden that it’s smooth sailing. And if it isn’t, there will be a studio set up in every hotel room until it is.”

Rez is no stranger to recording on the road, much of 2007’s Year Zero was made during NIN’s With Teeth tour, but let’s hope it’s finished before the movie hits theaters in October. 

While no one was expecting this to be the happiest movie ever made, Trent let us in on what we can expect to experience later this year.

It’s a much darker film than I was expecting. The book is not exactly uplifting or happy, but it’s a nasty film.”

I feel like the same buzz was surrounding Girl with The Dragon Tattoo and I ended up not really caring about that by the time it was released. Gone Girl has Batfleck counting against it, but if it creeped Trent Reznor out in any way, then it might be worth watching.
