BLACK MIRROR/Miley Cyrus Redux Give 30-Year-Old NINE INCH NAILS Song 300% Boost

Black Mirror returned to Netflix last week for a (very short) 5th season, one that concluded with “Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too”. The episode stars Miley Cyrus as pop-star Ashley-O, and her hit song is a reimagining of Nine Inch Nail’s “Head Like a Hole”, a single from 1989’s Pretty Hate Machine album.

“On a role” is a cheesy, groan-inducing ditty, but it delivers a hefty dose of nostalgia. Apparently, “Head Like a Hole” has been enjoying a significant resurgence since “Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too” began streaming. The folks at Loudwire did the math:

Since the June 5 premiere of Season 5 of the popular science fiction series on Netflix, “Head Like a Hole” saw an average increase of 40,000 views per day on YouTube, which is a 300 percent spike from the average daily views from the year prior.

If you’re not a Black Mirror fan, you can still give “On a Roll” a listen (along with the song’s saccharine lyrics) below. Check out the original banger at the bottom of the article.

[Verse 1]
Oh honey, I’ll do anything for you
Oh honey, just tell me what you want me to
Oh honey, kiss me up against the wall
Oh honey, don’t think anything, just have it all
[Pre-Chorus]
Yeah, I can’t take it, so don’t you fake it
I know your love’s my destiny
Yeah I can’t take take it, please demonstrate it
‘Cause I’m going down in history
[Chorus]
Hey, yeah whoa-ho, I’m on a roll

Ridin’ so high, achieving my goals
Hey, yeah whoa-ho, I’m on a roll
Ridin’ so high, achieving my goals
[Post-Chorus]
I’m stoked on ambition and verve
I’m gonna get what I deserve
So full of ambition and verve
I’m gonna get what I deserve
[Verse 2]
Oh honey, I’ll do anything for you
Oh honey, not concerned who sees us ripping up the floor
Oh honey, we’ll go dancing wherever you choose
Oh honey, you know we just can’t lose
[Pre-Chorus]
Yeah, I can’t take it, so don’t you fake it
I know your love’s my destiny
Yeah, I can’t take it, please demonstrate it
‘Cause I’m going down in history

[Chorus]
Hey, yeah whoa-ho, I’m on a roll
Ridin’ so high, achieving my goals
Hey, yeah whoa-ho, I’m on a roll
Ridin’ so high, achieving my goals
[Post-Chorus]
I’m stoked on ambition and verve
I’m gonna get what I deserve
So full of ambition and verve
I’m gonna get what I deserve
