Nine Inch Nails Back Joe Biden: “We Are Gravely Concerned About The Future Of Our Country”
Nine Inch Nails are the latest band to announce that they are backing Joe Biden in the upcoming U.S. election.
Joining the likes of Foo Fighters, Tenacious D, Green Day and Fall Out Boy, who have all publicly shown their support in various ways, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross took to Twitter to state that they were “gravely concerned about the future of our country”, and as such would be voting for the Democrats.
“Warning: two political posts to follow,” they wrote. “We are gravely concerned about the future of our country (and the world) and therefore will be voting for and supporting Joe Biden and Democrats down the ticket.
“Looking for ways to help Get Out the Vote? Sign up to join our friend Damon Lindelof and other special guests in a phone bank, calling on those in Battleground States to show up and vote for Biden.
“Voting shapes our lives and has lasting effects. This election will determine our health, rights and future. NIN have joined almost 200 artists in Planned Parenthood’s Action Fund initiative, encouraging everyone to make a plan to vote and be heard. Text PLAN to 22422 #WeNeedEveryVoice
“Thank you. Return to your regularly scheduled anxiety!”
Earlier this week, Jack Black recruited some celeb friends for a political Tenacious D cover of the Rocky Horror Picture Show’s Time Warp, urging listeners to jump to the left and not step to the right this November 3.
On Sunday evening, meanwhile, Foos’ Dave Grohl and keyboardist Rami Jaffee performed a stunning stripped back version of Times Like These for Joe Biden’s virtual I Will Vote concert.
In September, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong also announced his support, stating that, “Trump has got to go. America cannot afford another four years of Trump in office. Our democracy is at stake. Our earth is at stake. We need health care for all. We need justice. We need peace. We need police reform.”
