Cover of Pretty Hate Machine

From Pretty Hate Machine and 140 other releases

“Sin” (also known as “Halo 4”) is a single by Nine Inch Nails for the song of the same name released in 1990.

“Sin” is the fourth official Nine Inch Nails release and the final single for the album Pretty Hate Machine. It contains three remixes of “Sin” from Pretty Hate Machine and Nine Inch Nails’ first cover song. Even though the front has a stylized graphic that simply says “5in” and it is generally referred to as “Sin”

the spine of the US version refers to the album as “Sin Long, Dub & Short”.

“Get Down, Make Love” is a cover of the Queen song originally released on News of the World. This version of “Get Down Make Love” samples Dan O’Herlihy from The Cabinet of Caligari.

The video

A video was released, using the “(short)” remix of the song, which featured two girls dancing with each other at the beginning, cutting to a black-and-white footage of a woman, naked except for what looks like straps to spelunking gear and a halogen lamp, walking a wrist-bound Trent Reznor with a bag over his head through what looks like an industrial warehouse complex and eventually to strap him into a large rotary harness where she spins him throughout the video. These scenes are intercut with two young gay lovers who eventually fight, a man and woman wearing ritualistic dressings and dancing, as well as visuals of a pierced phallus and clitoris, all reflecting the song’s dark, sexual aspects.
