When I initially heard NIN were reuniting I was like, what does that even mean? Is a NIN reunion just Trent Reznor going up to his attic and dusting off his old laptop? It’s happening though. And it is happening in DC.
In 1994 a 14 year-old me listened to Nine Inch Nails’ album The Downward Spiral (that’s redundant Trent!) with confused fascination. Of course we all remember the standout track Closer. I had no concept of sex, how are we fucking like animals? My cat just got knocked up and gave birth to kittens in our basement. IS THAT WHAT PEOPLE ARE DOING? Whew, teens are the dumbest. I can’t wait to relive my youth on October 18th when Trent brings all the nine inch nails to the Verizon Center. Tickets are on sale now but we snagged a nostalgic pair for you. To win just tell us about a time you were totally confused by a song’s lyrics because your baby brain just couldn’t wrap itself around the meaning. Best answer wins. Winner will be chosen by COB October 17th. Good luck!
And here’s another sex-related thing I didn’t get at the time. How did they know the number? I was the worst.
