New Order when they played back-to-back in 2005?

A) Ain't friendly with New Order. 'Dead Souls' was a business decision.

B) Ian Curtis ain't around to duet

C) The Crow was a shitty movie

D) NIN stays away from covers

E) Other

B is in poor taste. C is very wrong. The Crow was an amazing movie.

Didn't mean it that way. Was thinkin that, out of respect to Ian, Trent didn't want to perform it live. Just trying to figure it out...really seemed like a perfect situation to do it...and the NIN version is pretty great.

'Atmosphere' opened the New Order set. Trippyyy.

Maybe 'cause Reznor's legendary stage presence would have been tarnished by New Order's legendary lack thereof. It would have been cool, though.

Um, shouldn't those names be swapped?

Cheers for the 'takes'. It's possible the idea was never even considered at all. Guess we'll never know.

Will never forget the blue LED lights going up and down at the back of the NIN stage. Looked like the Death Star from Star Wars. Great show.
