Derek:  So, I just read that they’re having a tenth anniversary release of the Nine Inch Nails Downward Spiral album.

Steph:  Oh. Wow. That’s cool. Is the band gettin’ back together?

Derek:  I’m not sure if they’re getting back together. Maybe they’ll do a tour, though. That would be cool.

Steph:  Yeah. Like a CD release tour. That would be really neat.

Derek:  Yeah.

Steph:  Would you go?

Derek:  I’m not sure. Um, I might think about it. It seems like it would be a really, really interesting concert to go to.

Steph:  Are you into them?

Derek:  I used to be. Um, you know, I haven’t listened to them for a while, but, you know, I’m not opposed to it.

Steph:  Right. Definitely. Even to go to a concert just for the nostalgia involved.

Derek:  Yeah. It’s been a lot longer than I thought.

Steph:  Yeah. That’s true. Have you ever seen them live?

Derek:  No. Just on TV.

Steph:  Yeah. That would be totally exciting.

Derek:  Yeah.

Steph:  Cool.

It’s really cool when bands re-release their older albums. It’s great because their older fans get to hear their music again and they can expose their music to new fans, too.
It would be great if this band got back together and made some new songs, too. What do you think?
