Vs Tuesday: Two Bands! One Song! Who Wins?! FIGHT! Lies.

While it wasn’t one of four singles released from the album “Terrible Lie” by Nine Nich Nails remains an undisputed classic song from an undisputed classic album in 1989’s “Pretty Hate Machine“. Themes of angst, betrayal and lovesickness litter first offering from Trent Reznor, an Industrial Rock album both harrowing and catchy at that same time that also gave us the anthemic “Head Like A Hole” and launched a thirty plus year career with a critically acclaimed begining. So to our head to head…

In the blood red corner we have Industrial Nu-Metal act Static-X with their version of the cut from the forthcoming and final “Project Regeneration Vol 2“, a collection of cuts that sees the “Wisconsin Death Trip” era line up of the band building new music around the vocal tapes of the much missed and dearly departed Wayne Static. In the ice blue corner we have a rendition often mislabeled as being by German industrial powerhouse KMFDM but is in point of fact by Guenter Schulz and En Esch, formerly of KMFDM and appears on “Re-Covered in Nails“, a 2001 Nine Inch Nails Tribute album. Who wins? You decide!
