THE NIN/CHRIS CORNELL WAR CONTINUES!
Speaking of Chris Cornell’s epic fail…
You may remember that Trent Reznor took a shot at Cornell over Twitter last month. Not content to leave “Fuck You” enough alone, Reznor has now launched what is pretty much the funniest, if not most convincing, April Fool’s prank of the year, offering an alleged download of a new album, The Strobe, on the NIN website. Here’s a description of the album:
To download NIN’s new full-length album, PRODUCED BY TIMBALAND, enter a valid email address in the fields below. A download link will be sent to you immediately. Your credit card will be charged $18.98 plus a $10 digital delivery convenience fee. Your files will arrive as windows media files playable on quite a few players with your name embedded all over them just in case you lose them. You will also receive an exclusive photo and a free email account with our partner Google’s Gmail service.
Your email will be kept confidential and will not be used for spam, unless we can make some money selling it.
The track list includes songs like “Pussygrinder” (featuring Sheryl Crow) and “Laid, Paid and Played” (featuring Fergie and Al Jourgenson). I won’t spoil the surprise of what happens if you actually attempt to download the album… but, really, I am just so gay for Trent Reznor I can’t even tell you.
