Nine Inch Nails is an American industrial band founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio. The band released two influential albums during the 1990s—The Downward Spiral (1994) and The Fragile (1999)—and has record sales exceeding over 20 million copies worldwide, with 10 million sales certified in the United States alone.
The band’s founder and primary producer, singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist, Reznor, has been the only constant member through much of the groups history. However, this changed in 2016 when English musician Atticus Ross was introduced as a permanent member. The touring band comprises a revolving lineup, and songs are often rearranged to suit this.
Nine Inch Nails has been nominated for thirteen Grammy Awards, winning twice for the songs “Wish” and “Happiness in Slavery” in 1992 and 1996, respectively. In 1997, Reznor appeared in Time magazine’s list of the year’s most influential people, and Spin magazine has described him as “the most vital artist in music”. In 2004, Rolling Stone placed Nine Inch Nails at 94 on the magazine’s list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. Nine Inch Nails was named as a nominee for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, its first year of eligibility. The band was nominated again the following year, but was not inducted.
