FACT: NIN Spawned 'Old Town Road' by Lil Nas X

Did 'OLD TOWN ROAD' Sound familiar? THIS IS WHY!

***

'Did you know the song "Old Town Road" is based on a  track? It's true. The recent hit from rapper that juxtaposes traditional country music trappings against the thrust of modern hip-hop — and has taken the Billboard charts for a surprising spin in the process— is built on a sample of "34 Ghosts IX."

The excerpt, taken from the instrumental entry among the many others found on Nine Inch Nails' expansive 2008 set, Ghosts I-IV, can be heard at the tail end of that album's second disc. A plucky-sounding segue of acoustic strings that starts the song is what lends "Old Town Road" its roots. Listen below.'
