Trent Reznor

"I went into [the new album] with a sense of not giving a fuck. Not worried about singles, radio play, melody, 'correct' song structure, record labels, marketability, critics, kissing ass, my own fans' expectations, chart positions, being fashionable, etc. In other words, probably every single thing a band like, say, Fall Out Boy worries about." -- In the new Rolling Stone.
