Trent Reznor Responds to Death Grips Breakup; Wins Twitter

by Rob Slater on July 03, 2014

Following the news of the Death Grips surprise break up yesterday, fans and musicians alike took to various social media outlets to share their shock. It appears as if this "conceptual art exhibition anchored by sound and vision" was quite a divisive topic yesterday and Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor even chimed in on Twitter.

Death Grips were supposed to open up on the recent NIN/Soundgarden tour that kicks off in just two weeks and now without an opener, Reznor apologized for putting too much faith into the band keeping it together given their rocky past.

In other Death Grips reaction news, Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest, who was a part of the group's cancelled tour dates this year AND was burned by the band last year as well after they didn't show up for their set, took to Facebook for this hysterical letter mocking the way the Death Grips announced their breakup.

Anyway, here is a band that is still together--Nine Inch Nails--playing "Hurt" during their recent "Tension" Tour stop in Los Angeles.

Trent Reznor is irrelevant and lame as fuck. Death Grips was real.

Using the phrase “wins twitter” puts you guys in league with BuzzFeed. No wonder you side with NIN.

Fuck Death Grips. Great group, I have all of their albums, but now that they have decided to put image and controversy ahead of their content they have screwed themselves to be remembered as nothing more than a vanity project, and Nine Inch Nails will continue to innovate and make interesting, uncompromising music. It’s a damn shame.

Alec Brewer sucks “real” wieners.  He also likes licking man yogurt from buttholes.

Pat Benetar will be opening now.  Also to perform “Everything” as a duet.

Yes, there WILL be a unicorn and rainbows.

“Trent Reznor is irrelevant and lame as fuck. Death Grips was real.”

Then why comment on him if he’s irrelevant? The truth is, he’s still relevant…..and it pisses you off. Sorry about your luck.

^ This.
TR only gets better with age.  I’m sad for anyone who can’t enjoy all the grateness.  Can’t think of a more talented artist.
Here’s to another 20yrs of NIN!

I know it’s spelled greatness.

It’s too bad, was gonna see them in West Palm. I don’t hate them for it, I just think their timing sucks donkey dick. It’s really fuckthesystemlol and yeahletsnottourwithtwohugebands, but I think this decision, if upheld, will reduce them to a flash in the pan of musical history. It’s their life, still gonna enjoy the fuckthesystemlol out of that show (going for NIN).
