Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D (pronounced Year Zero Remixed; also known as Halo 25) is the title of a release by Nine Inch Nails. It was leaked to P2P and torrent sites on November 14, 2007, and released in the US as a digital download and a CD/DVD-ROM on November 20, 2007, in the UK on November 26, 2007, and as a 3-disc vinyl set. The album contains remixes from artists that Trent Reznor contacted and asked to do remixes, as well as a fan remix. "My Violent Heart: Pirate Robot Midget" is a fan remix that initially appeared at ninremixes.com, but Reznor was so impressed by it that he asked for permission to add it to Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D.

Cover Art

The cover art was posted on NIN.com on August 15, 2007. It should be noted that the cover art for Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D is similar to the cover art for the Capital G promo.

Although there doesn't seem to be anything hidden in the cover art, a closer look at the inner booklet of the CD/DVD shows the phrase "WE DESERVED BETTER THAN THIS", along with "YOUR GOVERNMENT (Illegible)" and "AIR" scrawled on an abandoned house in a polluted wasteland. It is unknown if these are part of the ARG or lead to new websites.
