List of the top Nine Inch Nails songs, as voted on by fans like you. Decades before anyone had thought of the terms EDM or electronica, Trent Reznor's Nine Inch Nails brought electronic music to the mainstream. With a sonic inventiveness and a soul-bearing songwriting style, Reznor turned goth angst into worldwide success.  Modern day classics like "Hurt" and "Closer" fill out this list as well as underground classics from Pretty Hate Machine and Broken.

If you feel like we're overlooking some Reznor triumphs, stick them on there or reorder to create the dance party for the apocalypse that works for you. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
