In 1997 Nine Inch Nails lead singer Trent Reznor wrote the song "The Perfect Drug" for the film Lost Highway. The song was a huge success, but still Reznor didn't like it.
From Wikipedia: On April 6, 2005, while presenting the late-night BBC Radio 1 Rock Show in the UK, Trent Reznor responded to the question, "Which piece of your own work are you least satisfied with and why?" by saying:
"The only thing I think I really don't like that much is "The Perfect Drug" song. It was one of those things where you have a week to do a track for a movie, the mindset that you kind of adapt in that situation, or I did, was 'let's go in and experiment and see what happens, and it's not, y'know, whatever comes out of it, it's not the end of the world'. And I think what came out of it, married with a bloated, over-budget video, feels like ... the least thing that I would play to somebody if they said play me, y'know, the top hundred songs you've written, that probably wouldn't be in the top hundred. I'm not cringing about it, but it's not my favorite piece." 
Nine Inch Nails didn't play the song live until 2018.
The video portrays Reznor as a man mourning the loss of a child by detaching from the world through Absinthe. Absinthe is a French green liquor that causes a reaction similar to opium. It is so potent that it can actually cause renal failure in high doses.
