Black Mirror Nine Inch Nails Cover Song

While the new season of Black Mirror is a bit underwhelming, it does contain some bright spots. Most notably: Miley Cyrus performing a poppy, catchy Nine Inch Nails cover. Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker took the typically bleak NIN song “Head Like a Hole” and reworked it into the sunny, inspirational “On a Roll.” The cover is sung by (fictional) pop star Ashley O (Cyrus) in the episode “Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too”, and you can now listen to it in full.

black mirror season 5 review

A strange thing has happened since Black Mirror first launched back in 2011: the real world has become more and more like the fictional, sci-fi world of the show. Tech companies have become more and more powerful, and more and more destructive. Social media has played a real part in harming – some might even say destroying – democracy. Season 2 of the show featured a story about a vulgar TV personality running for political office as a publicity stunt, and then defying the odds and winning (sound familiar?).

As the world around us becomes more and more unstable, Black Mirror now finds itself in a precarious position. How can your dystopian sci-fi show compete with the actual impending actual dystopia? Black Mirror season 5 returns to Netflix today with three lengthy episodes, all of which have their moments. But perhaps it’s time to accept that the show has run its course.

Black Mirror delights in shocking its viewers, but the biggest shock it pulled happened before its upcoming fifth season actually hits Netflix.

bandersnatch answers

In a move that, honestly, we all should’ve seen coming, it looks like Netflix saved everyone’s Black Mirror: Bandersnatch answers. The streaming service has been mining all that data ever since the choose-your-own-adventure dropped, and they’re being tight-lipped about how long they plan to hang onto it. While this may seem relatively harmless, all things considered, there’s a certain invasion of privacy angle here that seems like it would be right at home in, well…a Black Mirror episode.
