Clouser has shared songwriting credits for <blockquote>I think what first sucked me into Trent's world was, at the NIN songs "[[The Way Out Is Through]]" time, this would have been about '92 when I started working with him and "[[Starfuckersat the time, IncI was doing a lot of drum and synth programming for hard rock/industrial acts like Prong and White Zombie and things like that. (song)|StarfuckersOriginally, Inc.]]" He appears in the [[Nine Inch Nails music videos|music videos]] first thing I did for "Trent was programming drum reinforcements on [[Hurt Marilyn Manson (songband)|HurtMarilyn Manson]]" (live)'s first record. He was busy with three or four things at once, "[[Eraser]]" (live)preparing for a tour, "finishing the ''[[Wish The Downward Spiral (songalbum)|WishDownward Spiral]]" (live)'' album. And, Manson had recorded their basic tracks for their first album and Trent thought the drum needed to be beefed up. So I, being a sampler jockey and sequencer wiz, was brought in to just, not to create anything new, but just to stack and add fatness behind the basic tracks for Manson's first album. And, he allocated "[[The Perfect Drug (song)|The Perfect Drug]]X" amount of days or weeks or whatever it was for me to do that and I finished it a lot quicker than he thought and then he started saying, "[[Into The Void (song)|Into The Void]]Hmm, this guy is a wiz with some of this program stuff. Maybe we should bring him into the loop.".</blockquote>
