This must be the end result of having destroyed angels.

Carlton is actually a fucking good dancer.
He was trained for a while to work with Michael Jackson. I think he was also a tap dancer for a while, too.

The music sounds like a Joy Division knock off, and the singing falls in with any whiny modern pop crooner. So basically it sounds just like anything else NIN does!
As what might best be considered a non-fan listener to NIN, this sounds nothing like what I'm used to hearing from Reznor and whoever he's working with these days.
Admittedly, my only NIN exposures are "The Hand That Feeds," "Head Like A Hole," "Animal," and the music from Quake.
Maybe someone slipped him some anti-depressants?
It's not true, for the first couple albums NIN was ripping off Soft Cell a lot more than Joy Division.
I haven't heard any NIN since that album ffrom the late 90s that was 7 versions of Closer and a ten minute cover of Meomoribilia by Soft Cell so maybe there were some changes since then, but this sounds literally nothing like ny NIN I've ever heard.
It sounds like Radio Disney.
This is pretty clearly a "what do kids dig these days?" move, and what kids dig these days is bands that sound like a mix between Neu! and Joy Division, but condensed into 3 minute pop songs.
I have to admit that I don't know anyone, young or old, that's a big Joy Division fan.
The music from Quake is the best thing NIN ever did as far as I'm concerned. The worst things about NIN are the drums, the vocals and the guitars, when you get rid of that you have some genuinely interesting, yet still light and accessible, ambient music. No new ground is broken but it's very pleasant.
When viewed purely as an 80s cover band, NIN ain't all that bad.
I liked NIN pretty good when i was a teenager, some angsty friends really ruined it for me at some point. The quake soundtrack was pretty good, i seem to remember having a copy of Descent for the ps1 that had a soundtrack by Type O Negative.
I stand by Soft Cell.

My favourite band as a teenager. *sigh*
I bought concert tickets for this tour a couple months ago. *SIGH*
Still kickin' ass!!!
Mine was Zappa, with Butthole Surfers getting honorable mention.
Gish is a good album in retrospect, Smashing Pumpkins should have stuck to being a heavier wave of the Paisley Underground.
I rather liked Siamese Dream too.
Siamese Dream is a fantastic album.

Aww, leave 'im alone! Can't Trent just be happy??

Nine Inch Nails made a Strokes song. Looks like Trent still knows how to troll his fans.

Five stars not just for Carlton but also for the good chance Reznor is raging about this video. Or is responsible for it. Either way.

Starring Carlton's bouncing junk.

This doesn't strike me as super terrible (though the proximity to Joy Division rip off is uncomfortably close) but it also isn't something I would pay money to listen to. Sorry Trent. Loved your early stuff, but not NO MO.

This guy named his kids "Balthazar" and "Lazarus Echo". If he has two more kids it'll be an entire adventuring party

All my stars for Blink 182 writing for Trent.
