It’s not everyday that an artist tells their fans not to buy their albums, but that is what Trent Reznor is doing. His former label is re-releasing Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Pretty Hate Machine‘, and he’d rather you not buy it. The Academy Award winner recently took to Twitter to urge his fans to ignore it and being the cool guy he is, offered a better way to listen to ‘Pretty Hate Machine‘.
“NIN fans, don’t waste your money on this version of PHM that was just released”, he then linked to the band’s catalog and continued “very similar to the original release. This is not a remastered release”. He also described it as “a record label bulls*** move repackaging the old version. Ignore please”. Listen to the man!
Reznor said recently that he was going to start working on more NIN material soon, but “soon” in his terms could mean another year. In the meantime, you can enjoy all of his music here. DO IT!! And just for fun? Bow down.
