Nine Inch Nails ‘Closer’

A song about sexual obsession and frustration, Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Closer’ was culled as a single from a concept album about a man’s drug-laced decline and attempted suicide; recorded in the house where actress Sharon Tate and four of her friends were brutally murdered by members of the Manson Family; and promoted by a video depicting a severed pig’s head, a monkey tied to a cross, a naked bald woman and a guy in S&M gear singing, “I wanna fuck you like an animal.” - Richard Buskin
