Trent Reznor Tells Fans To Ignore Nine Inch Nails Reissue

Nine Inch Nails main man Trent Reznor told fans last Thursday (July 14th) via Twitter not to waste their money on a new reissue of their 1989 debut album Pretty Hate Machine:

NIN fans, don’t waste your money on this version of PHM that was just released

He went on to add this:

… a record label bullshit move repackaging the old version. Ignore please.

Personally, I think it’s a cool move by Reznor and one that is most definitely in the interest of the fans. Certainly he’s getting royalties from the reissue and he stands to lose money from his statements but I’ve got to give it to him…he gets it. Record labels are becoming less relevant in the modern age and the common perception in the music industry is that labels screw artists and fans over on a regular basis and here’s an example of an artist with a lot of power and influence sticking it to a label.

I’m not a big fan of reissues, but if there’s plenty of extra content and the album sounds better I’ll throw my money down. Sounds like there isn’t any reason to spend your hard earned money on the reissue of Pretty Hate Machine and major props to Trent for pointing that out to fans.
