Top Ten Best Nine Inch Nails Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 I Would for You I Would for You
42 Piggy Piggy

Has one of the best piano melodic parts at the end. Great lyrics. Based off of Charles Manson as is the entire downward spiral album. Trent Renoir is a genius and in piggy he shows off the industrial electrical rock he created.

I love the drums in this song, and the bass.

43 Burn Burn
44 Gave Up Gave Up
45 Mr. Self Destruct Mr. Self Destruct

A most thrilling production showcase is in this song. Definitely a top ten. The surround-rain effect at the end always freaks me out! Love it!

This song really helps me out. Being a person with Asperger's, I play this song on my iPod so I can't hear all the loud, obnoxious kids on my bus.

46 The Wretched The Wretched

My favorite thing about this is how awesome the piano line sounds right after The Frail. The beginning is amazing and continues to hold up.

47 Deep Deep
48 In This Twilight In This Twilight

This is the kinda song you'd listen to in an apocalypse: the whole world has collided, and you're all alone in solitude, but soon, you begin to realize there is a silver lining if you look close enough. This song is a perfect combination of doom & hope. Definitely powerful & apocalyptic. Underrated, too. Deserves to be top 10 at least.

51 I Do Not Want This I Do Not Want This
52 Head Down Head Down
53 Dead Souls Dead Souls

This is a cover of Joy Division's Dead Souls but I must admit they put much effort on the instrumental intro & Trent's vocal performance is at an all-time best. Definitely a better version than the original song.

54 Leaving Hope Leaving Hope
55 Ringfinger Ringfinger

66? This has to be a top 10 most popular and 10 best! What happened?

56 Zero Sum Zero Sum

Another apocalyptic song. If you want to feel the chills from this song, listen to the Deceased album version. It focuses more on the harmony of the song rather than the powerful lyrics. It also gives you a more apocalyptic vibe.

The perfect ending for a perfect album. My favorite album of NIN is Year Zero and this song just creates a movie in my head about the end of the woorld or the World after "it" happened. So dystopic, so depressing, so cool, just awesome

57 Big Man With a Gun Big Man With a Gun

You can feel frustration and anger build up in 'I do not want this' before the flood gates open and this song arrives. It's pretty intense.

58 Home
59 Me, I'm Not Me, I'm Not

Great song, but I like the void mix remix better. The remix adds piano & sends off a really calm vibe with majestic synthesizers. If you wanna listen to this song & experience a really chill vibe, listen to Me, I'm Not (Void Mix) from YouTube. You wont regret it.

It's a good electronic song and it is like fifteen minutes long

60 Meet Your Master Meet Your Master

So amazing. My favorite and definitely deserves more attention than it gets. The same goes for many songs from year zero.

I used to listen to this on repeat. - Mercwithamouth
