Welcome to the Nine Inch Nails Wiki. This Wiki's purpose is to help organize our thoughts and findings relating to NIN. To edit, login or register if you haven't already. To just mess around, go to the Sandbox.

World of Year Zero

There is a lot going on regarding the events surrounding Year Zero and the current future world, where Year Zero takes place. This is to inform new and old users alike of everything going on. According to Trent, Year Zero takes place about 15 years in the future, which would be 2022. There is also a Year Zero Timeline being compiled.

A series of highlighted letters have been found on a Nine Inch Nails tour shirt which spell out the words "I am trying to believe," leading users to iamtryingtobelieve.com. This site details numerous things going on in this time line, such as the Parepin drug and The Presence. Using the track list to the album, people discovered numerous related websites.

The first of these additional websites, anotherversionofthetruth.com, displays what looks to be a propaganda poster. Clicking and dragging portions of the image reveals it "tears away" into a much more negative image, linking to a message board in which users have been discussing various aspects of society, including handing out links to various audio files and links to other related websites.

More websites have popped up through context, giving more information as to what is happening in the universe and specifying more details, opening up more puzzles, and inspiring the community to dig deeper to explore more of this world.

On February 14th, 2007, "My Violent Heart", track eight of Year Zero, was "leaked" to the Internet. On February 15th, the first single, Survivalism, was played on KROQ radio and then other radio stations throughout the day, marking its official air date, over a week ahead of schedule. A full-quality rip soon ended up on the Internet.

On February 19th, 2007, "Me, I'm Not", track six of Year Zero was "leaked" via another USB drive found in Barcelona, Spain. Along with the the song was another file that when ran through a spectograph analyzer revealed the phone number 1-216-333-1810, which in turn led us to the U.S. Wiretap Website. On February 22nd, 2007, a new site called "Art is Resistance" appeared on the web, giving links to downloadables such as forum avatars, wallpapers, stencils, and stickers. This site heavily showcases the resistance flag, which was seen (perhaps even hinted at) on a photo of Trent at nin.com the previous day. Also, a few hours after this site was revealed, the Year Zero website was updated with a teaser video and the finalized album cover.

Cover for Year Zero

On February 25th, 2007, several fans noticed a "glitch" next to the song "In This Twilight" on yearzero.nin.com. Later that night, an ETS member found a USB key at a concert in the UK. He handed it off to a friend who contacted several sources online to host the song and image which were on the USB key. Later, another website, Hollywood in Memoriam, was discovered.

On March 7th, 2007, several USB drives given out before the Nine Inch Nails concert in London were revealed to contain both the high-resolution and low-resolution versions of the "Survivalism" video. The video had led to the discovery of three more sites - The Water Turned To Blood, Judson Ogram Correctional Facility, and Cedocore.

The Year Zero Research Page is being constantly updated to track recent developments, theories, and essentially organize the Year Zero events into a cohesive storyline. Check out the Research Timeline to see how the events unfolded.
