Rare Footage Of Nine Inch Nails On Dance Party USA

1 minute read

Earlier today some rare Nine Inch Nails footage found its way to the internet. The footage shows the band performing in either the late 80's or early 90's on a live dance program called Dance Party USA. This evening, Trent Reznor took to his twitter account to talk about the video, he said:

Many years ago, a young and naive Nine Inch Nails were asked what TV shows they'd be interested in appearing on. As a joke (and likely drunk), they thought of the most absurd choice they could come up with at the time. They were then informed their bluff had been called and were actually booked on said show (thanks again Sioux Z). They hopped in their Honda Civic touring vehicle (hatchback) and travelled many miles to (I think) NJ for the big show. They had a laugh making fun of the people, their fashion choices and hairstyles. Life was good.

Years later, the internet is discovered...

There's a moral in there somewhere.

Come to think of it, Skrillex may indeed owe me some publishing on that hairdo...

Check out their performance of Down In It with Trent and his scrunchie tied Skrillex hairdo below.
