On a cadillac

Look back. You can never look back.
Was reminded of that sentiment just now as I was watching CNN and they led in to a sports section with, and I kid you not, Head Like a Hole [happy lyrics right here] by Nine Inch Nails.
A post modern finger raised by some intern in editing, or has NIN now become accepted by the Budweiser crowd?
