The single also serves as a companion [[Remixes|remix]] album of sorts to ''Pretty Hate Machine''.
  
==About==
+
==Track listings==
The single was released in maxi-single (US) and standard single (UK and Australia) formats and do not contain the original album version but rather several remixes of the title track.  On non-US versions, there is an exclusive (Opal) mix.  Also the first track, the (Clay) mix which was used for the "[[Head Like A Hole (song)|Head Like A Hole]]" video is mislabeled as the (Slate) mix which is the first track on the US maxi-single but doesn't appear on the UK single version. The UK 12" release is also not marked with a Halo number.
+
 
+
Remixes of "[[Terrible Lie]]" are the B-Sides for this single, as well as the two remixes and a demo of "[[Down In It (song)|Down In It]]" that appeared on the ''[[Down In It (halo)|Down In It]]'' single.  The US Maxi version is actually longer in duration than ''[[Pretty Hate Machine]]'' while the UK Single is standard size.
+
 
+
The maxi-Single's disc art reveals the BPM for "[[Head Like A Hole (song)|Head Like A Hole]]" to be 115 BPM and the BPM for "[[Terrible Lie]]" to be 88 BPM.
+
 
+
On the US version, there's an unlisted 11th track featuring a clip of Kelly Ripa shouting "Let's hear it for Nine Inch Nails! Woooo! They're GOOD!"

==About==
 +
''Head Like A Hole'' was released in maxi-single (US) and standard single (UK and Australia) formats. Despite the absence of the original album version on either release, the US Maxi version is longer than ''Pretty Hate Machine'', thanks to inclusion of 5 tracks from the limited UK edition of the ''Down In It'' single (Halo 1): 2 versions of "Terrible Lie" and 3 of "Down In It", all of which had only been available on vinyl when this maxi-single was due for release; shortly thereafter, Halo 1 was released on CD by TVT as well.
 +
 
 +
The maxi-single's disc art reveals the tempo for "Head Like A Hole" (115 BPM) and "Terrible Lie" (88 BPM). On the US version, there's an unlisted bonus track featuring a clip of Heather "Princess" Day from Dance Party USA shouting "Let's hear it for Nine Inch Nails! Woooo! They're GOOD!" Also the first track on the UK single version is mislabeled: instead of ''Slate'' it should read ''Clay'' (that mix was used for the "Head Like A Hole" video).
 +
 
 +
The UK version's artwork was originally intended to be the sole artwork, but was replaced for the wider release by TVT Records due to the colour printing costing too much.[http://www.theninhotline.net/archives/articles/manager/display_article.php?id=327]

About

Head Like A Hole was released in maxi-single (US) and standard single (UK and Australia) formats. Despite the absence of the original album version on either release, the US Maxi version is longer than Pretty Hate Machine, thanks to inclusion of 5 tracks from the limited UK edition of the Down In It single (Halo 1): 2 versions of "Terrible Lie" and 3 of "Down In It", all of which had only been available on vinyl when this maxi-single was due for release; shortly thereafter, Halo 1 was released on CD by TVT as well.

The maxi-single's disc art reveals the tempo for "Head Like A Hole" (115 BPM) and "Terrible Lie" (88 BPM). On the US version, there's an unlisted bonus track featuring a clip of Heather "Princess" Day from Dance Party USA shouting "Let's hear it for Nine Inch Nails! Woooo! They're GOOD!" Also the first track on the UK single version is mislabeled: instead of Slate it should read Clay (that mix was used for the "Head Like A Hole" video).

The UK version's artwork was originally intended to be the sole artwork, but was replaced for the wider release by TVT Records due to the colour printing costing too much.[1]
