Nine Inch Nails (MFA: [naɪn ɪntʃ neɪlz]; abbr. NIN, often stylized as NII; translated from English - "nine inch nails") is an American industrial rock band, created by Trent Reznor in 1988 in Cleveland, Ohio. As the main producer, singer, lyricist and musician, Reznor is the sole permanent member of the band and is solely responsible for its development.
After the recording of the next album, Reznor, as a rule, attracts musicians with whom he goes on a concert tour in support of the record; this live line-up exists separately from Nine Inch Nails in the studio. On stage, NIN often use eye-catching visuals to accompany their performances, often culminating in musicians destroying their instruments.
Nine Inch Nails has sold over 20 million records and have been nominated for 13 Grammy Awards, winning for the songs "Wish" in 1992 and "Happiness in Slavery" in 1996. Time magazine named Reznor one of its most influential people in 1997, while Spin magazine has described him as "the most vital artist in music". In 2004, Rolling Stone placed Nine Inch Nails at No. 94 on its list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. Nine Inch Nails were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, their first year of eligibility; they were nominated again in 2015 and 2020, with the latter resulting in an induction.
