Nine Inch Nails: Influences

Nine Inch Nails: Influences

What made Nine Inch Nails different from earlier industrial acts like Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, and Skinny Puppy was that Trent Reznor never hid his affection for synth-pop, '70s glam, prog rock, and electro-funk. That careful balance between harrowing drama and tuneful pop craftsmanship gave Nine Inch Nails a unique edge.
