"Into the Void" is a single by Nine Inch Nails, released in 2000. The song was the third single from the album "The Fragile", released in 1999. The music video was directed by Walter Stern and Jeff Richter.

The song

"Into the Void" has been covered by Eric Gorfain, Skorbut & Kalte Farben and Wormhole. "Into the Void" bears no relation to the track bearing the same name that was originally performed by English heavy metal band Black Sabbath.

The song played a key role in the movie "Final Destination".

The song features the same guitar and the bassline as the song "La Mer" also on The Fragile.

The single

"Into the Void" was released as a single only in Australia. This Australian release does not have a halo number, making it the only commercially-available Nine Inch Nails CD released with that distinction. (The Capital G single was released to Europe as a non-halo'ed 9" vinyl in June of 2007.) However, a two-track promotional CD for "Into the Void", released only in the United States, was incorrectly identified as "Halo Sixteen."

The version of "The Perfect Drug" included on this single is slightly longer than the one released on the "Lost Highway" soundtrack. It fades out at the end instead of ending abruptly. It's the same version found on the We're In This Together PT. 3 single. This track and all of the other tracks on this disc can be found on other halos.

Music video

A music video for the song was directed by Walter Stern and Jeff Richter. An alternate version of the video was later released. [cite web

] The video begins with a series of extreme close-ups of Trent Reznor, including his eyes, hair, and mouth. The video concludes with the Nine Inch Nails band performing the song in a red room and eventually destroying their equipment and the set itself. "Into the Void" was nominated for the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards Breakthrough Video award, but lost out to Björk's "All Is Full of Love", directed by Chris Cunningham.
