Well, OK, the new Trent Reznor parody song “This Is A Trent Reznor Song” isn’t as good as “Abracadabralifornia,” partly because Trent Reznor would never use a title like that and partly because Reznor hasn’t adhered too strictly to this particular songwriting blueprint over his last few albums. It still nails plenty of the tricks Reznor liberally employed in his younger years. And the song itself is sort of great? Like, something I’d listen to if it didn’t have joke lyrics? Freddy Scott, who has evidently carved that NIN logo into a desk or two in his lifetime, is the person responsible, and you can hear the song below.

If we are now entering a period of alt-rock song-parody arms race, then I am a happy man.
