Nine Inch Nails Logo Used by Canadian Politicians

Image Courtesy of The Fun StarThey're not using the band's music for their politics, but a trio of Canadian politicians are celebrating their partnership with a shout-out to Nine Inch Nails. Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson and Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi are using Trent Reznor's band's "NIN" logo for a promotional t-shirt, which, in this case, stands for "Notley Iveson Nenshi."

Reznor has yet to comment on the t-shirt, which reads "Building Alberta Together" under the logo, but one Twitter user responded by saying "That is lame." However, Mayor Nenshi was already aware of that fact, responding, "Of course it's lame. That's why it's funny."

Premier Notley, meanwhile, has a history of using rock bands for politics. As points out, Notley's supporters sold faux-Motley Crue t-shirts that read "Notley Crue" during her spring campaign.
