“Reznor: Died. Said Fist Fuck. Won a Grammy.”

Featuring Wish, the only Grammy-winning song to contain the phrase "fist fuck".

This EP (or album, depending on who you ask) isn't just a one trick pony, though, it's FULL of harsh industrial metal that you'll find hard to spin just once. I highly recommend watching the film, too - it technically hasn't been released, but if you've been on the internet for more than, like, 10 seconds, you know where to find it.

The EP begins strong with Wish and Last, both of which I absolutely adore. It falls off a tad bit after those two songs, but the songs following are still very good in their own rights. I love how loud this is, especially in comparison to NIN's other projects.

Made as a 'fuck you' to Trent's record label at the time, TVT Records, is a catchy and noisy EP

Best Tracks - WISH, LAST, HAPPINESS IN SLAVERY, GAVE UP, (YOU'RE SO) PHYSICAL

Worst Tracks - HELP ME I AM IN HELL

This is angry. It's really angry. It's the record that defines angry. It's short, loud, and extremely blunt. And good lord is it angry. The rage, the hate, the passion, the fear, the whole depressing tone of it all, the nihalism, has been cranked up to ten. And it gives off fabulous results.

Favorite jams: Gave Up, Wish, Suck

Lest Favorite: Uh...Help Me I Am In Hell?
