Head Like A Hole (also known as Halo 3) is the second single by Nine Inch Nails, and the second single from debut album Pretty Hate Machine, released on March 22, 1990 by TVT Records.

About

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" 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" that appeared on the 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" 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!"
