But their official Nine Inch Nails portrait made me do a double take.
Rock stars are supposed to be tearing things up, spewing spittle, wailing in front of towers of flame and flashing lights, biting the heads off of small animals – the fire and brimstone imagery that rock is made of.
Not putting out band photos that look like they went to the Sears Photo Center and paid a little extra for the black background.
Somebody – PLEASE open up NIN’s new band photo (hi-res link) in Photoshop, select that black background and drop in something that rocks – like a fireball or a wall of amps!
If you can make something of this, put a link in the comments.
