Song of the Day: Nine Inch Nails – “Wish”

Happy birthday wishes to Trent Reznor, who turns 51 years old today. Today’s Song of the Day is one of NIN’s classic hits, which was part of the pulverizing Broken EP that Trent unleashed after a dispute with NIN’s original record label TVT, who did not want to release any NIN records that weren’t in the same synthpop flavor of the debut Pretty Hate Machine. “Wish” went on to win a 1993 Grammy for Best Metal Performance, after which Reznor said that his epitaph should read “REZNOR: Died. Said ‘fist fuck’ and won a Grammy.” Reznor has accomplished quite a bit more than that, including an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award for the soundtrack to The Social Network. What Reznor has in store for the future is certainly interesting as he’s slated to be part of the gigantic cast of the Twin Peaks reboot, set for launch in 2017.
