Rather than close with the dark and depressing "Hurt," Nine Inch Nails issued a killer "Head Like a Hole," which became a massive sing along during the anthemic chorus. Savvy move by Trent Reznor, the reformed drug abuser who nowadays appears as disciplined as all those "pigs" and subservient "fuckers" he screams about. Jane's Addiction brought jammy, earnest hard-rock and the mega-watt star power of maniacal Perry Farrell.
