Nine Inch Nails/ Trent Reznor has produced some of the most incredible music for the "Industrial Rock" Genre. Nine Inch Nails inspired many artist including Marilyn Manson, Slipknot, Motionless in White. Trent is one hell of a musician and has been incredibly innovative and at the forefront of advances and pushing the limits of what one can do with audio signaling and modular synths, incredible talented. He won an Oscar with Atticus Ross for their original score for the social network. The also scored the movie Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and BirdBox. I've been a Nails fan since i was 13. I only got the chance to see them 2 years ago, I was front row, it was hands down the best live performance I had ever seen. I was stoked to see Depeche Mode finally get in the hall of fame too. Whitney, i mean I understand why, same with BIG, and Doobie. . . but T-Rex?
you know whats kind of funny is that Nine Inch Nails had been nominated for the Hall of fame twice before, but Trent has openly criticized the hall of fame for being bullshit for passing on inducting legendary and influential acts in the past. That was until he was asked to present the TheCure when they were inducted and where he mentioned his distain for the hall of fame because up until that point the cure had been passed on. So the fact that NIN is being inducted is a trip to me. I'm happy for him and the guys.
