90s at 9 Even with These Lyrics NIN Won a Grammy

"Wish" may not have been their highest charting song, but it scored NIN a Grammy

Nine Inch Nails released "Wish" as a promotional single from their debut EP Broken in 1992. It was remixed twice for the compilation EP Fixed. 
" Wish" won the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance in 1993. It reached #25 on the Alternative Songs chart.
There were actually two videos shot for this song. The original and another shot from concert footage in 1995 intended for release in 1996, but Trent Reznor was not happy with the final product so that video was shelved. The original video has an alternate ending. In the first ending the men trying to break into the cage throughout the video do get in with bats and clubs. MTV felt the ending was too violent so a second ending was created to make it more network friendly.

I'm a Central Wisconsin girl born and raised. I grew up in Port Edwards and participated in cheerleading, basketball, volleyball and softball as well as many clubs like National Honor Society, SADD, yearbook and forensics. I was a very busy high school student and still managed to get good enough grades to go to college at UW-Stevens Point where I was just as busy between working 3 jobs including executive staff positions at the campus alternative rock radio station and volunteering at the campus television station.

After graduation I thought I would take my BA in Mass Communications with emphasis in Broadcasting and Journalism and Minor in Political Science and become a big time reporter in some major city. But instead my internship with our news station here at Midwest Communications turned into a part-time job and opened the door to the morning show co-host position at WDEZ. After 9 1/4 years of fun in the mornings I was promoted to Assistant Brand Manager and moved to The Workday Getaway.

I couldn't deny my love for rock anymore! It was time dive head first into the genre I spent my formative years listening to day in and day out. When the opportunity arose for me to become the Brand Manager for Rock 94.7 and host the morning show I couldn't pass it up.

I'm so happy that I stayed in Central Wisconsin I couldn't imagine raising my three daughters anywhere else.
