25 years later, Nine Inch Nails make network TV debut on Kimmel


While Nine Inch Nails’ appearance on Dance Party USA is something of legend (especially on the Internet), the band has actually managed to exist for 25 years (give or take a hiatus) without ever performing on network TV. But after Jimmy Kimmel managed to piss off and interview Kanye West in a matter of days, getting NIN onto his Hollywood stage was a relatively simple coup. Reznor and co. appeared on Live! last night to deliver “Various Methods of Escape” and “All Time Low” from their new album, Hesitation Marks. Catch the replay below.

It’s been a week of firsts for Nine Inch Nails, who played “All The Love In The World” live for the first time ever on Tuesday. Following Kimmel, the band will spend the rest of the month wrapping up the “Tension 2013” fall tour. Consult the full schedule below. Also keep your eyes open in early 2014 for NIN’s next TV appearance on Austin City Limits.
