Nine Inch Nails

Saturday

Industrial group Nine Inch Nails, founded by Trent Reznor, has been at the forefront of the international music scene for nearly three decades. The band released two influential albums during the 1990s – The Downward Spiral (1994) and The Fragile (1999) – and has record sales exceeding over 20 million copies worldwide.

Nine Inch Nails has been nominated for thirteen Grammy Awards, winning twice for the songs “Wish” and “Happiness in Slavery” in 1992 and 1996, respectively. In 1997, Reznor appeared in Time magazine’s list of the year’s most influential people, and Spin magazine has described him as “the most vital artist in music.” In 2004, Rolling Stone placed Nine Inch Nails at No. 94 on its list of the 100 greatest artists of all time, and Nine Inch Nails was named as nominees for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, their first year of eligibility, and were nominated again in 2015.
