‘120 Minutes’ Rewind: Trent Reznor spends Christmas Eve with Dave Kendall — 1989

Trent Reznor and Dave Kendall

For this week’s “120 Minutes” Rewind, we flash back to the episode that aired on Christmas Eve in 1989 for this short but wonderfully odd appearance by a pre-superstardom Trent Reznor, who helps festive host Dave Kendall trim the “120 Minutes” Christmas tree and then discusses plans for Nine Inch Nails’ upcoming single “Head Like a Hole.”

As a bonus we’ve included another clip below from the same show, in which Joey Ramone drops by to give Kendall gifts from Mikhail Gorbachev and the Ramones.

Watch both below via dpallen.

  3. Anyone notice the streamer being put on the tree is the edge to dot-matrix printer paper? LOL.

  4. it was a low-budget show, Chris…

  5. Surreal and amazing. RIP Joey <3
