Trent Reznor Wins an Academy Award


…And as all the art lovers cry because “Exit Through the Gift Shop” didn’t win best documentary tonight, I’d just like to point out Trent Reznor won and Academy Award, which is pretty cool. While I’ve never been a huge Nine Inch Nails fan, and have yet to see the Social Network (yeah, I know, blasphemy), I do have to thank Reznor for creating the amazing song, “Hurt”. Not only was “Hurt” a great song, but Johnny Cash covered it, and any Cash cover has got to be a good one.

Hurt – Nine Inch Nails

Hurt – Johnny Cash

On We March – Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross

The songs I’ve heard from the Social Network soundtrack have kind of a subdued, industrial Dust Brother’s work for Fight Club kind of sound to them. The building tensions and dark soundscapes are great, and anyone who enjoyed this music should probably check out Radiohead’s “The King of Limbs”, Thom Yorke’s “The Eraser” , and the Dust Brother’s work for Fight Club.
