"Into the Void" is a song by American industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails from their third studio album, The Fragile , released in 1999. It is the album's third single and saw release early 2000. A music video was directed by Walter Stern and Jeff Richter.

The song

"Into the Void" has been covered by Eric Gorfain, Skorbut, Kalte Farben and Wormhole.

The song was featured in the 2000 film Final Destination , being played on the radio in Carter Horton's '71 Chevy Nova, before one of the characters is killed. Even though the song was not written for the movie, the words final destination appear in the song ("...pictures in my head of the final destination...").

The song features the same guitar and bass lines as the song "La Mer" also on The Fragile.

The single

"Into the Void" was released as a single only in Australia on 10th January 2000. It peaked at #72 on the ARIA singles chart. [1] This Australian release lacks a halo number, making it the only commercial Nine Inch Nails release with that distinction. (The Capital G single was released to Europe as a non-halo'ed 9" vinyl in June 2007.) However, a two-track promotional CD for "Into the Void", released only in the United States, was incorrectly identified as Halo Sixteen. As it was not an international release and was only sold in Australia, it is considered a rare release for NIN memorabilia collectors.

The version of "The Perfect Drug" included on this single is slightly longer than the one released on the Lost Highway soundtrack. It fades out at the end instead of ending abruptly. It is the same version found on the We're In This Together PT. 3 single. This track and all of the other tracks on this disc can be found on other halos.

Music video

A music video for the song was directed by Walter Stern and Jeff Richter. An alternate version of the video was later released. [2] [3] The video begins with a series of macrophotographic close-ups of Trent Reznor, including his eyes, hair, and mouth. The video concludes with the Nine Inch Nails band performing the song in a red room and eventually destroying their equipment and the set itself. Into the Void was nominated for the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards Breakthrough Video award, but lost out to Björk's All Is Full of Love , directed by Chris Cunningham.
