Nine Inch Nails
Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine
Debut studio album by the industrial rock band, originally released in October 1989. The album, which features a heavily synth-driven electronic sound blended with industrial and rock elements, bears little resemblance to the band's subsequent work. Conversely, much like the band's later work, the album's lyrics contain themes of angst, betrayal, and lovesickness. The record was promoted with the singles 'Down in It', 'Head Like a Hole', and 'Sin'.
