Re: RARA-AVIS: Re: Noir tunes

Doug, Out of curiosity, what makes Nine Inch Nails noir? Goth maybe, industrial, probably, but noir? Sure the music is dark and gloomy, but I don't see much in Reznor's lyrics to warrant being called noir. I'd say the same went for Joy Divison, dark and gloomy, even tortured, maybe even doomed with Love Will Tear Us Apart, but I don't see them as noir either.
