Top Ten Best Nine Inch Nails Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Reptile

This has to be one of the best songs Reznor has ever created. Vocals are practically perfect, lyrics are incredibly sinister and creative, and the instrumental is amazing, and perfectly compliments the tone of the song.

A lethal example of Reznor's creative brutality, anger, and innovative use of sounds. It's some seriously sinister stuff.

HAHA 78th? Not to mention The Downward Spiral isn't even on this list

Truly amazing. There is just something so wonderful in it's darkness.

What? this song defines NIN. It's filled with intense anger, screams, and lots & lots of hatred. Metal at it's best.

The metal performance is unbelievable.

One of their heaviest songs, this needs to be up higher!

This song is AWESOME! Amazing Voice

23 Came Back Haunted

An awesome song that gets stuck in your head and wont get out! Definitely the best song off Hesitation Marks!

I'm glad he came back period. Industrial music needs to come back haunted...

24 Getting Smaller
25 The Great Below

Why no song from The Fragile? This is for me the best song they ever wrote, though I like a lot The Downward Spiral.

Hey guys what, that's the one of the best, should be in top 10. Vote for it

29 The Big Come Down

The Big Come Down is not only the best song on The Fragile, but the best song Trent Reznor had ever released up until that point in time. The synths, the guitars, the aggressive vocals. Just listen to it. It is an underrated gem in Reznor's discography.

30 Sanctified

All I have to say is this song should be moved up at least in the top 20. If not then it should be in the top 15

The bass line is great. The moment you play this song makes you feel badass and you just want to slowly headbang like saying "i'm cool and you are not". Is it odd?

31 Just Like You Imagined

One of the most powerful instrumentals there ever is. An amazing combination of pain, anger and madness. Truly deserves top 10 ranking.

Deserves a much higher ranking...definitely!
Absolute pleasure to listen on headphones...powerful instrumental bliss

32 Discipline

This song opens with a standard Nine Inch Nails drum track but really launches itself into a crescendo of power and emotion with the repetitive guitar and dancing piano, interspersed w Reznor's backing vocals and pleading chorus. 5 stars, 2 thumbs up.

This song is completely underrated deserves more recognition

An unbelievable combination of all Trent Reznor's Creative abilities. Seriously underrate.

This is basically a better version of Closer
