Nine Inch Nails are selling a limited edition Black Mirror t-shirt

05 June 2019, 16:43 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Nine Inch Nails have put a new limited edition t-shirt up for sale inspired by Miley Cyrus' Black Mirror episode.

The new season of Black Mirror landed on Netflix today, and Miley Cyrus' episode sees the popstar rework Nine Inch Nail songs into pop hits.

Speaking to The Independent, Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker revealed, "Actually every song that she (Miley Cyrus) performs in this, they’re all Nine Inch Nails songs that we adapted into pop standards, that was actually one thing that was in the script early on that we had to get permission from Trent Reznor to do that, to re-write some of his tracks as upbeat pop songs.

Brooker added, "It was via email and he was really happy, like, pretty quickly. He wanted to see the script and I got to re-write his lyrics in a chirpy way. I’m not the best lyricist in the world, in the first thing she’s singing "I’m stoked on ambition and verve", instead of "you’re gonna get what you deserve.""

The limited edition NIN t-shirt reads, "Head like a hole! I'm on a roll! Ridin' so high! Achieving my goals!"

Season five of Black Mirror is out now on Netflix. The Nine Inch Nails limited edition t-shirts are available to pre-order now.
