Trent Reznor has made a lifelong career of music that pushes people out of their comfort zone. Under the moniker of Nine Inch Nails, he introduced a generation to bondage and angst. Although Gone Girl was snubbed for a soundtrack Oscar nom this year, it is a powerfully haunting album.
Last night Nine Inch Nails revisited Boston at the Xfinity Center. Fun fact: 1992's Wish from the Broken EP won a Grammy, and may be the only song ever to do so incorporating lyrics, "fist-fuck."
