The ever-busy Trent Reznor took some time out of his schedule to write a track for the game Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which he described as “aggressive” guitar rock that has “a lot of reservation and angst and sense of loss and regret and anger bubbling under the surface”. Now that song will see commercial release, as on November 13th, the Call of Duty: Black Ops II soundtrack will be released, featuring over 40 other songs, Reznor’s included. Source

    You know that feeling you get when somebody sales themselves out so badly YOU feel uncomfortable? Heard Trent Reznor’s pandering to the casuals? Jesus..

  • STFU Dave

    WTF are you talking about Dave? Are you going to compare that embarrassing abomination called “Scream”, where Cornell tried to become the new Justin Timberlake to save his solo career, with just writing a (probably good/great) song for a game (having Reznor written music for several successful games and movies in the past—> Quake, Lost Highway, NBK, TSN, TGWTDT, etc)?

    I know this is mainly a grunge site where people will suck Cornell’s dick before Trent’s any given day, but Cornell sold out badly with Scream, Reznor hasn’t sold out that way yet.

    I am a fan of both (and I listended to SG before NIN), but when Reznor commented how embarrassing “Scream” was, he was just right, deal with it.

    How is recording a song for a video game “selling out”? I’d like for you to tell me some bands who haven’t sold out.

    Here’s a rip from youtube that’s been up for several months:

  • Deviate

    The original Quake soundtrack (more or less what I could consider a “soundscape” with the exception of the title track) was great. Quake went on to be a yet another video game icon, yet no one said Trent sold out then. *eyeroll*

  • Deviate

    Oh, and 3 years after Quake he released The Fragile which was “critically acclaimed”. Did he sell out?

    Cut me a break people. Trent does whatever he wants. No one has ever dictated his career.
