Nine Inch Nails performing Down In It on Dance Party USA (1989?)
“Many years ago, a young and naive Nine Inch Nails were asked what TV shows they’d be interested in appearing on,” Reznor tweeted. “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…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… “
