They are uniquely and obsessively dedicated.
NIN’s music doesn’t mean that much to me as a 30 year old man. They were a big part of my musical landscape growing up in the mid-90s, though. Looking at it now, or a current version of it, is like watching the rock equivalent of a Roland Emmerich movie.
However, in this era of pitchfork-driven detachment and cool, it’s really neat, in a way, to see simple love and dedication towards a band.
