Today, exactly 29 years ago, Nine Inch Nails released their second single Head Like a Hole!

22nd of March 2019, 09:15

Today, exactly 29 years ago, Nine Inch Nails released their second single Head Like a Hole (22 March 1990) and bared the NIN catalogue number Halo 3. taken from their debut album Pretty Hate Machine (Halo 2) which was already released in October 1989.

Trent Reznor wrote 'Head like A Hole' already two years before its actual release, after touring with Skinny Puppy in 1988. The song was recorded in 1989 and was co-produced by Adrian Sherwood, Flood, and Keith LeBlanc. Since Flood was pretty occupied with producing Depeche Mode's Violator album at that time, 'Head Like a Hole' became one of the last songs the band finished for their Pretty Hate Machine album.

A music video was shot for the "Clay" remix of this song and was directed by Eric Zimmerman which was later also featured on the Closure VHS video tape (1997). The video got heavy rotation on MTV and helped to fuel NIN's early success. The video was shot at the Exit nightclub (Chicago) and features band members Trent Reznor, Richard Patrick, and Chris Vrenna, as well as guest drummer Martin Atkins performing in a cage

Head Like A Hole became an instant (underground) hit and remains upon today still one of NIN’s main artifacts.

The song was covered by many artists since then, amongst those DEVO and Nu-Metal band Korn

Head Like A Hole - Lyrics

God money I'll do anything for you.
God money just tell me what you want me to
God money nail me up against the wall.
God money don't want everything he wants it all.
No you can't take it
No you can't take it
No you can't take that away from me
No you can't take it
No you can't take it
No you can't take that away from me

Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.
Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.

Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.

God money's not looking for the cure.
God money's not concerned with the sick among the pure.
God money let's go dancing on the backs of the bruised.
God money's not one to choose
No you can't take it
No you can't take it
No you can't take that away from me
No you can't take it
No you can't take it
No you can't take that away from me

Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.
Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.

Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.

Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.
Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.
Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.
Head like a hole.
Black as your soul.
I'd rather die than give you control.

Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.

Songwriters: Trent Reznor
