One of the most popular and intensely creative figures in the alternative rock movement of the 1990s, Trent Reznor blended raw, violent emotion with stark electronic landscapes to create Nine Inch Nails, a formidable, Grammy-winning industrial band that topped the charts for over a decade with releases like The Fragile and The Downward Spiral. Reznor was the band's chief architect, crafting its violent explosions of anger, angst and turmoil in his studio, and then assembling a crack team of players to translate his music in eye-popping stage shows for adoring fans. The pressures of fame and the music industry took a severe toll on him for much of the 1990s, but after expunging many of his demons in the new millennium, Reznor brought Nine Inch Nails to a close at the top of their game before exploring new venues in music, including soundtracks for films like "The Social Network" (2010). A committed, fiercely independent and astonishingly prolific figure in music, Reznor's pain became the fire for a stellar career and a balm of support for millions of fans.
