Miley Cyrus Covers Reworked Nine Inch Nails Song in “Black Mirror” Episode
Miley Cyrus covers Nine Inch Nails–sort of–on the new season of Netflix’s dystopian sci-fi series, <i>Black Mirror. </i>Pitchfork reports that in Cyrus’ highly anticipated episode, “Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too,” her character has a hit song called “On a Roll” that’s actually a slightly tweaked version of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like a Hole.” Series creator Charlie Brooker tells <i>GQ</i> he reached out to NIN frontman Trent Reznor to ask about reworking “Head Like a Hole” and other tracks. “It was a flattering ask and I thought, yeah, let’s try it, let’s see,” says Reznor. It turns out, he dug the results. “You can’t listen to it without a smile,” he adds. ‘I put it on in the car with my wife and she was like ‘What the f**k is that?’ It’s just so well done.” The new season of<i> Black Mirror</i> is available on Netflix now.
