According to The Spiral, the music video for "Every Day Is Exactly the Same", directed by Francis Lawrence, was canceled in post-production. An image of a clapperboard and in the background what appeared to be water tank with a 3-lead ECG appeared on the official Nine Inch Nails website, but was later taken down.

There is also a studio cut video for the song. It can be seen on Beside You In Time .

Release and reception

Allmusic gave a generally favorable review of the EP, describing its various remixes as "actually better than the original versions". Allmusic described the "Sam Fog vs. Carlos D Mix" of "Every Day Is Exactly the Same" as "sleekly ominous", and concluded that the track rendered "NIN's increasingly claustrophobic, insular music sound fresh again". [4] Pitchfork Media was not as positive towards the last mix, however, labeling it as the most disappointing track on the release and calling it "cold and ordinary". [5] Pitchfork was more positive towards the other tracks however, labeling the El-P mix as "a harrowing (and somewhat cloying) experience" and concluding of the DFA mix that "the treatment works beautifully." [5]

The song is featured in the 2008 film Wanted , where it became the film's most recognizable song.

This song is played in the CBS show Hawaii Five-0 , in the beginning of the 15th episode of the third season, entitled "Hookman".

This song is played in the show Criminal Minds (first season, second episode, 1 minute 27 seconds in). The episode is titled "Compulsion".
