Trent Reznor's dystopian future

Nine Inch Nails is coming out with an album called "Year Zero" in April. In conjunction with this release, they have come out with a series of websites that tell a story of a dystopian future 15 years from now. A terrorist dirty bomb attack has destroyed L.A., we have nuked Iran, the government is putting mind control substances in the water supply, and the whole country has become a Christian totalitarian state. These websites illustrate different aspects of that future, from the resistance to the official government sites. It essentially amounts to a movie in website form. It's very cool.

You can also listen to songs from the new album on this site.
