Listen To Nine Inch Nails’ ‘The Day The World Went Away’ from Person of Interest

nine inch nails the fragile cover art

The Nine Inch Nails track ‘The Day The World Went Away‘ was featured on Person of Interest last week — (Series 5, Episode 10 – “The Day The World Went Away“, May 31, 2016), the series’ 100th episode.

And a heartbreaking episode that could not have had a more beautiful track to accompany it.

But this Nine Inch Nails song is especially beautiful with its quiet beginning, slow, sad pace and featuring just a piano, guitar and lead singer Trent Reznor’s agonized vocals.


The Day The World Went Away‘ is from Nine Inch Nails’ 1999 album The Fragile, yet even today is┬ástill the highest-placing single for the industrial rock band.

Listen to it below. Gorgeous.
