I Want to Friend You Like an Animal: Trent Reznor Scores ‘Social Network’

Friday, July 2 by

Trent just loves FarmVille.

Trent Reznor and David Fincher are now friends.

At least we assume they are, now that we know the Nine Inch Nails’ front man has scored the soundtrack to Fincher’s upcoming Facebook docudrama, The Social Network. Hell, at this point, we wouldn’t be suprised if they were poking.

Reznor, whose music was also featured in the soundtrack for Fincher’s Se7en, is big fan of the director. And like many of his fans, he was confused as to why Fincher would choose to make a film about Facebook. However, after being involved with the project, he seems happy with the end result.

"I’ve always loved David’s work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story," said Reznor before quickly explaining, "It’s really f*cking good!"

Reznor’s involvement in the film is somewhat ironic, given the fact that he made headlines in 2009 (online headlines, not the real kind) for publicly pledging to tune out from online social networks.

"I will be tuning out of the social networking sites because at the end of the day it’s now doing more harm than good in the bigger picture and the experiment seems to have yielded a result. Idiots rule." (Empire Online)
