Trent Reznor’s 8 Angriest Nine Inch Nails Moments

On Nine Inch Nails' new album Hesitation Marks, which came out earlier this week Trent Reznor's rage never comes to a boil. Instead, it simmers, steaming the top of the pot without spilling over and getting away. Considering the sentence that most often coincidences with the name Trent Reznor is "I want to f*ck you like the animal," this is a big change, and one that mostly works well (the album suffers slightly from repetition, albeit danceable repetition).

Still, Reznor's at his best when he's screaming, which is why the eight songs after the jump, taken from throughout NIN's 20-plus-years together, are eight of their best. (Sorry, Ghosts I–IV.) And certainly among their angriest.
