Trent Reznor Calls Out Bands Who Only Want To Impress "Hip Blogs"
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.07.2014



In an interview with The Daily Record, Trent Reznor called out bands who he thinks are "cowardly" because they only want to impress "hip blogs". Here are highlights:

On a conservative nature in rock: "When you see a lot more excitement generated from the dance tent, I do think a staleness has permeated [rock music]. A pretty conservative nature has crept into music, and I don't mean sonically. I get the sense that a lot of bands today are designing themselves to get a good review in the hip blogs, and that is probably the safest and most cowardly thing you can do as an artist. If you have something to say, then say it. Express yourself and break the rules."

On an early Nine Inch Nails show that ended in violence: "You know what I remember most of all is playing in a dingy low-ceilinged club and my security guy, who was an a**hole, got the sh** beaten out of him by some other, bigger roughnecks. Any stereotype of a violent and rough bar fight in Scotland came to life. That was pretty breathtaking. So I'm look forward to playing there."

On getting into film: "I jumped into some avenues that were unexpected. I got involved in the films, had a family and I started a new band throughout that process and it sparked creativity and I felt inspired by working with David Fincher. The reinvention of working with people really ignited me."
