28 Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails is an American industrial rock/metal band and, founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio.

While there are 90s rock geniuses like Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl, Eddie Vedder, Chris Cornell, Scott Weiland, Billie Joe Armstrong, Anthony Kledis, Billy Corgan, Maynard James Keenan, etc., but in my opinion, Trent Reznor makes them all bite the dust.
