Influences

Nine Inch Nails' earliest influences include Ministry and Skinny Puppy, which helped shape 1989's Pretty Hate Machine.[4] The album's liner notes also paid tribute to the hip-hop group Public Enemy and Prince.[255] Another large influence on the band's sound is Gary Numan, which is evident as Reznor once said that "after hearing 'Cars' I knew I wanted to make music with synthesizers".[256] The 2005 single "Only" exemplifies the disco-style beats and synthesizers drawn from Numan's persuasion.[255] Other artists of significance to Nine Inch Nails encompass late 70s and 80s acts such as Queen, Devo,[257] Joy Division, Adam Ant,[255] and Soft Cell.[258]

Reznor has toured with some of his influences, including a brief tour opening for Skinny Puppy in 1988.[4][259] In 1995, Nine Inch Nails went on tour with David Bowie, who, along with Pink Floyd, had been a significant influence on The Downward Spiral.[4]
