For this week’s installment of “120 Minutes” Rewind, we flash back to 1991 for this segment from a stop on the first Lollapalooza tour, which finds host Dave Kendall chatting up Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Richard Patrick (who’d go on to front Filter).
Kendall asks Reznor if industrial music is on the verge of mainstream popularity, and Reznor replies, “Whether or not it’s going to be the new big thing, I don’t know.” While industrial music as a genre never really broke big, NIN, of course, would in a huge way with The Downward Spiral.
