This is the opening track of Nine Inch Nails' Add Violence
EP. No longer a wild rock star, Trent Reznor recorded the record as a sober parent with concerns about his children's interest in his music. "I'm not looking forward to the 'Closer
' talk," he told Vulture
. "Which is probably going to happen quicker than I'd like."
"Just this morning, me and my two older boys were sitting in the hotel restaurant," Reznor added. "Their mom has played the new EP for them a couple times. They're like, "My favorite song is 'Less Than.'" That's sweet, but then I'm thinking, 'don't I say 'f--k' in that one?'"
