Recorded almost entirely without the help of a conventional band, Nine Inch Nails’ debut studio album Pretty Hate Machine originated as a set of demos Trent Reznor recorded while he was working as a janitor in a Cleveland, Ohio recording studio. Released on TVT in 1989, the final album found Reznor collaborating with producers Flood, John Fryer, Keith LeBlanc, and Adrian Sherwood. The singles“Head Like a Hole,”“Down In It,” and“Sin,” capture NIN’s early industrial synth-rock sound. Reznor has joked:“It's the all-purpose alternative album!"
This t-shirt features the alternative artwork from the 2010s remastered edition of Pretty Hate Machine. Designed by NIN’s longtime art director, Rob Sheridan, the reimagined album cover was painstakingly recreated(notably—at Reznor’s request—without the original’s distinct 1980s highlighter color scheme) because the original art files could no longer be found.
