Nine Inch Nails was founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio. Reznor is the band's core producer, singer,
songwriter, and instrumentalist, making him the only official member of Nine Inch Nails. In the band's early years, they were
well-received by underground music audiences. To date, the band has sold 30 million albums across the globe, with 11 million
sold in the United States alone. Since 1989, the group has had nine major studio releases. Following a hiatus from 2009–2013,
Nine Inch Nails issued the album Hesitation Marks via Columbia Records.
Nine Inch Nails' debut album Pretty Hate Machine
dropped in 1989. The disc was written, arranged, and performed by Reznor. At first, the album failed to make it into the top
70, and spent 113 weeks on the Billboard 200. However, the record later became one of the first independently released records
to go platinum. The album spawned MTV music videos for three of its songs: "Down in It," "Head Like a Hole," and an explicit
video for "Sin." In 1990, Nine Inch Nails kicked off the Pretty Hate Machine Tour Series, in which they toured across North
America as a supporting act for alternative rock artists including Peter Murphy and The Jesus and Mary Chain. Nine Inch Nails
then toured all around the world, and later performed at the first Lollapalooza festival in 1991.
In 1992, Nine Inch
Nails released Broken, an EP that featured six songs and two bonus tracks. This record marked the band's first entrance into
the top 10. At the time, Reznor said that Broken was a guitar-based "blast of destruction," and called it "a lot harder than
Pretty Hate Machine." The disc spawned two singles, "Happiness in Slavery" and "Wish," and the band won Grammys for both of
Nine Inch Nails' second full-length album, The Downward Spiral, landed in the Billboard 200 in 1994 at
number two. The album became the highest-selling Nine Inch Nails release in the United States to date, selling more than four
million copies. The Downward Spiral also sold five million copies internationally. The album was supported by two singles,
"March of the Pigs" and "Closer." Later, the songs "Hurt" and "Piggy" garnered radio airplay without being released as commercial
singles. The single "Closer" peaked at number 41 on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked the album at number
200 on their list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time."In 2005, the CD placed 25th on Spin's list of the "100 Greatest
Five years passed between the release of The Downward Spiral and the band's next full-length
album, The Fragile, which was issued as a double CD in September 1999. The album was a huge success, debuting at number one
on the Billboard 200, a first for the band, and selling 228,000 copies in its first week. Spin named The Fragile as the "album
of the year," but Pitchfork Media slammed it for including "overly melodramatic" lyrics. Nine Inch Nails' fourth studio album,
With Teeth, was released in 2005, and became the band's second release to debut at the top of the Billboard 200. The band
embarked on an arena tour across North America in the fall of 2005, with their supporting acts including Queens of the Stone
Age, Autolux, and Death from Above 1979.
Nine Inch Nails' fifth full-length album, Year Zero (2007), included lyrics
written from the perspective of a string of fictional characters. The disc was a concept album that set out to criticize the
United States government's current policies, and how they would impact the world 15 years in the future.
