"Suck" is the second hidden track on 1992's Broken EP. Originally packaged with "Physical (You're So)" on a Mini CD sold with the EP, it was later incorporated onto the EP as a hidden track after allegations that some music stores were removing the Mini CD and selling it separately. "Suck" is track 99 on Broken while "Physical" is track 98.

"Suck" was originally written and performed by Pigface, a band lead by Martin Atkins featuring Trent Reznor as well as many other notable Industrial musicians. Other notable singers of the song within Pigface include Nivek Ogre of Skinny Puppy, who even shared the song as a duet with Reznor. Since 1994, it has become one of the regular songs played by Nine Inch Nails.

According to a previously unreleased interview Reznor did with Melody Maker magazine, "Suck" was supposed to be a "tongue-in-cheek" cover. The multitracks for the original Pigface version of the song were released for a remix contest.

Versions

Suck

This is the version found on the Broken EP.

Throw This Away

This remix, found on Fixed, combines both "Suck" and "Last."

Suck (And All That Could Have Been)

This live version is similar to the album version, but the ending is very different, with Reznor shouting "Suck!" repeatedly rather than singing the song's final lyrics.

Suck (Pigface version)

This is the original version of the song, released in 1990. It features Reznor's vocals and a dum backing, with the "suck, suck, suck" portion of the song performed in a whisper. The track is 3:39 long.

Live

"Suck" was played occasionally during the Pretty Hate Machine era, and has become a regular in the set since the Self Destruct tour.

Lyrics

    There is no god up in the sky tonight
    No sign of Heaven anywhere in sight
    All that was true is left behind
    Once I could see now I am blind
    Don't want the dreams you try to sell
    This disease I give it to myself
    
    How does it feel?
    Suck suck suck
    
    She makes it sweeter than the sun
    I get too tight I come undone
    I bow my head to confess
    The temple walls are made of flesh
    Runs up my arm till I'm on track
    Itches the skin right off my back
    I'll heal your wounds
    I'll set you free
    I'm Jesus Christ on ecstasy
    
    How does it feel?
    Suck suck suck
    
    I feel so dirty on the inside
    I am so dirty on the inside
    
    How does it feel?
    Suck suck suck
    
    A thousand lips
    A thousand tongues
    A thousand throats
    A thousand lungs
    A thousand ways to make it true
    I want to do terrible things to you
