NIN was lumped in a bit with Korn for a while. Specifically, I remember a group of kids in my high school who alternated between Korn, NIN and Tool shirts... maybe a Manson every once in a while, or a Nirvana (because deep, obviously)... sometimes even a Submie tee, which I always found really incongruous on several levels, but whatever.

Anyway, because NIN had dark videos that were played late at night and kinda looked a bit like the "ADIDAS" video mixed with the "Ænema" video (divided by Depeche Mode), NIN was somehow thrown in with that trinity of pre-rap rock, post-grunge whateverthefuck. Really, Trent didn't belong in that company. I don't think those kids ever listened to Pretty Hate Machine all the way through. Surely if they had the music would have seemed totally gay to the lot of them.

I always thought of Nine Inch Nails as a peer of Jane's Addiction, Rollins Band, Faith No More, Ministry, Coil. Dark, weird, ambitious, heavy, a bit artsy... Not the same stuff the Korns of the world were made of.
