Miley Cyrus Releases Video for Poppy Cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like a Hole” with Upbeat Lyrics


Last week, the world was treated to a most unexpected cover in the form of Miley Cyrus doing a fairly straightforward rendition of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like a Hole.” The cover was done as part of the latest season of Black Mirror; at the time of its release, it was reported that in the actual episode, Cyrus — playing ‘Ashely O.’ — performs a version of the song, “On a Roll,” that is considerably poppier, and features new, more mainstream-friendly lyrics to boot:  “Hey there, whoah-ho, I’m on a roll / Riding so high, achieving my goals / I’m so stoked on ambition and verve / I’m gonna get what I deserve.”

That other, poppier version of the song is now available for your listening pleasure, along with the accompanying ‘Ashley O.’ music video, which is a dead ringer for any actual pop video you’ll see these days. Like, you could probably convince someone out of the loop that this is truly Miley’s latest single.

Enjoy the clip below. If you really dig it, there’s an official limited edition t-shirt featuring the new lyrics available for sale here.
