Watch Nine Inch Nails’ bizarrely awesome ‘Twin Peaks’ performance

Posted by on June 26, 2017

While we’re casual fans of Twin Peaks, apparently, the best episode of the new Showtime reboot was released yesterday. In fact, Rolling Stone‘s recap of the episode said it was “arguably television’s WTF-weirdest and most ambitious hour ever.” While that’s debatable, David Lynch essentially put a full video for the band’s “She’s Gone Away” right in the middle of the episode. Introduced as “The Nine Inch Nails,” the band play the full song in the show’s nightclub The Roadhouse.

It’s incongruous, and not having seen the rest of the episode yet, it’s hard to say how it fits in with the rest of the show, but if David Lynch, who worked with Nine Inch Nails and Trent Reznor on Lost Highway, wants to direct a video for a song (which was on last year’s Not the Actual Events), you let him do it.
