Trent Reznor would really like it if you wouldn’t buy the re-release of Nine Inch Nails’ debut album ‘Pretty Hate Machine’, OK?

One of Universal Music’s catalogue divisions is re-releasing the original record, which, although out of print from 1997 to 2005 after Reznor fell out with original label TVT, was re-issued in its original form in 2005 by Ryko, and then a new version remastered by Reznor himself came out last year. The latest re-release is seemingly just the original. Reznor took to Twitter to declare the latest re-release “a record label bullshit move repackaging the old version”, adding “NIN fans, don’t waste your money on this version of PHM that was just released”.

So, take note.
