During Nine Inch Nails‘ December 7 show at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, CA, the band were joined onstage by Trent Reznor’s wife, Mariqueen Maandig Reznor, for performances of How To Destroy Angels’ “Parasite,“ “Welcome Oblivion,” and “A Drowning.“ You can see some footage of that below:

Buckcherry are streaming their cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like A Hole,” via Billboard. The track will appear on the band’s upcoming album “Warpaint,” which is expected to be released in spring 2019.
Josh Todd said the following:
“[The cover] happened really organically. We were in the studio making the record, just kind of going through some old songs while they were setting up. We jammed it out the first time and it was like, boom, automatically sounded right as if we’d written it, which is what we always want to achieve when we do a cover.
“Our producer, Mike Plotnikoff, was recording the whole time and said, ‘Hey, why don’t you guys come in and hear this?’ He put up a little rough mix of it and we were like, ‘Wow, this sounds really good. We should do it.'”
He also added:
“It’s hard for me to sing cover songs if I don’t really believe in the lyrics or it feels weird as far as where it sits in my range. But this is such a great song, and I love the lyrics. It means a lot to me…To me it’s about being a slave to money and doing anything for it and greed and all that stuff. That’s how I look at it at least.”
Todd went on to say that he heard Nine Inch Nails‘ frontman Trent Reznor is actually a fan of Buckcherry:
“If that’s the truth, that would be amazing. He’s so talented and he’s really been a guy that’s kind of paved his way with his own thing. I always respect that. There’s not a lot of bands that stay true to who they are throughout their whole career, and I think he’s one of those guys.”
