Anyone can buy a CD, digital download of a song or album, or stream it. But if you’re a super-fan, you may want something extra-special. Trent Reznor knows this, so he often releases unusual Nine Inch Nails products. One of the more in-demand items was a special vinyl edition of the “Survivalism” single from 2007.
It’s a 9-inch single. Not 7-inch or 12-inch (which are the standard diameters) but NINE inches. It featured a regular version of “Survivalism” plus something called the “Opal Heart Clinic Niggy Tardust (Escaped) Remix.” Only 2,000 copies were printed up and were reserved exclusively for prizes from the official Nine Inch Nails fan club.
You’d think they’d fetch big money these days, but the average price is less than $20.
