In popular culture

  • Stephen King: "I've always been a TrentRez fan--and Nails. "Hurt" says all you need to know about what life takes away. What it ALWAYS takes away in the end. A song like that is a treasure because it vocalizes what we all feel but somehow can't say. Of course the Cash video blew me away, but that song (and the Bad Company lyric) have been in my head for a couple of years now."[1]
  • The fortress boss in Super Mario World is called Reznor.
  • The Machinist (2004): Writer Scott Kossar is a NIN fan, and named Christian Bale's character Trevor Reznik in tribute to Reznor. Early press articles described Reznik as going through a "downward spiral".
  • Hostage (2005): The psychopathic murderer Mars dons a Trent Reznor haircut. Before burning down the house, he uses his blood to write "BUЯN it" on a mirror and wall.
