As for NIN frontman and the song’s writer, Trent Reznor, he continues to bask in an unlikely, and multi-Cyrus-adjacent, mainstream spotlight in 2019; Lil Nas X leads the Hot 100 for a 12th week with “Old Town Road,” featuring Miley’s dad, Billy Ray Cyrus. The smash samples NIN’s “34 Ghost IV,” from the industrial rock band’s 2008 album Ghosts I–IV.
