Former good article nominee Head Like a Hole was a Music good articles nominee, but did not meet the good article criteria at the time. There are suggestions below for improving the article. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

Untitled[edit]

What about the band 'Head Like a Hole'? There should be a disambiguation page here.

See http://www.muzic.net.nz/artists/69.html and http://thebigcity.co.nz/artists/h/headlikeahole.php.

HLAH Disambiguation request[edit]

There most definitely *should* be a disambiguation page here. I don't know protocol so I won't edit the main article, but I'd like to voice my support for this.

Hmmm ...

  • A new page should be created, Head_Like_A_Hole_(Band). I nominate this article for the base text, but I don't know how to contact Nigel Regan and ask his permission. Nigel? http://www.muzic.net.nz/artists/69.html
  • This page (currently Head_Like_a_Hole) should be relocated to Head_Like_a_Hole_(Single)
  • A disambiguation page can then be located at this address.



I THIRD THAT.

  • I agree with this request, but not for the same reason. I agree that Head_Like_a_Hole_(Single) correctly describes this page, but a disambiguation page for Head_Like_A_Hole_(Band)? Get out of here. Your statements might carry more weight if you had user names and home pages and signed your entries. Have a nice day.Jarhed (talk) 20:23, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

Copper video[edit]

A friend and I, on seperate occasions, saw a video on TV synced up to the Copper mix of the song (the one with the jazz sample on the end), does anyone have any facts on this? --Matharvest 04:38, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

At NINCollector.com, I found a VHS that has a Head Like A Hole video that's approximately the same length as Head Like A Hole (Copper). Is this what you're looking for? -heroicraptor

"Halleluiah, Danny Lohner"?[edit]

After listening to "You Know Who You Are", I think the high-pitched voice is saying something along the lines of"Halleluiah, Danny Lohner". That message has been in other songs (A Perfect Circle's "Renholder"), but it doesn't make any sense, as Danny Lohner had not yet joined. Seeing as the words "Danny Lohner" are really clear, can anyone confirm this? --DJ Gentòó 20:02, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Which high-pitched voice? There's the crazy slur in the left channel, and two-syllable yaa yaas. I don't hear Danny Lohner, and these probably don't resemble the original samples at all. –Pomte 20:33, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
Listen to the instrumental version, it's where the first verse would be. --Djwings 17:42, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Unrelated images[edit]

I really have to question adding images of various types of minerals, just because the remixes are named after them. I think a simple wikilink to each of those minerals is plenty. This is an article about the song, not mineral types.

I also question including the image of Ministry. It doesn't add anything to the article, and again this is an article about the song, not Ministry.

I'm removing the images, but if someone thinks they really should be kept, bring it up here. (WP:BRD) MrMoustacheMM (talk) 15:32, 22 March 2011 (UTC)

GA Nomination[edit]

I've undone some poorly-made edits that attempted to replace some "citation needed" tags. One seemed to use part of a Wikipedia infobox as a source (which didn't support the sentence it was "referencing" anyway), and another linked to something that is clearly not a reliable source. Along with this, there are several more sentences/sections that need sources. Most of the Music Video section is lacking sources for original research (pretty much every sentence that does not have a citation could use one...how is what specific cards show up in any way notable?). I also question http://everything2.com/user/DyRE/writeups/Head+Like+a+Hole being a reliable source.

In the Music and Lyrics section it is claimed that the song is played in the key of E, and sources it to the HLAH single liner notes, but neither my US or UK versions of the single say what key the song is in.

In the Release and Reception section, some of the info could use sources (such as the different re-releases, info on Kelly Ripa yelling "Let's hear it for NIN...", etc).

In the Live Performances section, the claim that the title of Broken is a direct reference is definitely original research (considering the history surrounding that EP, "Broken" might refer to Trent's state of mind at the time, or his feelings towards TVT, or any one of a number of possible reasons).

There are several sources that only establish that some original research claims are true, but does not establish any notability or even support (the info on "you're going to get what you deserve" being re-used in the same or altered is original research). Some of the sources in this article also need to be properly formatted.

In other words, this article needs quite a bit of proper sourcing (and probably a lot of pruning) done before it could be a GA. Instead of trying to nominate this for GA when it clearly isn't ready, put it up on WP:REVIEW and get someone to peer-review it first. MrMoustacheMM (talk) 00:51, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

Metal/Rock[edit]

Why exactly is it listed as Industrial Rock when it says that it takes it's influence from Industrial and Thrash Metal? Is there any source saying it's rock and not metal? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.208.3.236 (talk) 04:52, 29 July 2012 (UTC)
