Can a Happy Trent Reznor Write Good NIN Songs?

Categories: Fiesta!

Era: 2009-2013

Nine Inch Nails albums: None

Other notable work: The post-industrial (or whatever) band How to Destroy Angels -- a reference to a Coil song -- put out a few EPs and an album; Reznor and Atticus Ross scored The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, winning an Oscar for the former.

Song titles: "The Wake Up," "Keep It Together," "Welcome Oblivion"

Common words in songs: away, fade, you, little, keep

Representative music video:

A simple studio video!

Anger level (out of 100): 43. Reznor's getting so upbeat. His new band is so laid-back it even played both weekends of Coachella.

Era: 2013

Nine Inch Nails albums: Hesitation Marks (Halo 28)

Other notable work: A collaboration with Dr. Dre's Beats Electronics

Song titles: "Copy of A," "Came Back Haunted," "Everything"

Common words in songs: you, just, what, copy, back

Representative music video:

Reznor finally makes another weird video, but classes it up by getting David Lynch to direct it.

Anger level (out of 100): 13. It's not like NIN has released "Walkin' on Sunshine," but this is Trent Reznor at his happiest.
