Spoof Reznor track gets video treatment

Comedian Freddy Scott has released a video for his spoof track This Is A Trent Reznor Song.

View the promo on YouTube.

The light-hearted parody, inspired by Scott’s admiration of the Nine Inch Nails frontman’s work, was released online last month and quickly went viral, notching up hundreds of thousands of streams in five days.

A lyric video followed, and now there’s a full-power spoof promo to go with the track, performed with the help of Saturday Night Live guitarist Jared Blake Scharff.

The real Reznor and NIN return to the UK in May to play the following dates:

May 18: Birmingham LG Arena

May 20: Glasgow Hydro Arena

May 21: Cardiff Motorpoint Arena

May 23: London O2

May 24: Nottingham Capital FM Arena

May 25: Manchester Phones 4u Arena

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
