'Hand' on the run
By Fred Bronson for Chart Beat Bonus on April 1, 2005
"The Hand That Feeds" is also the second highest debut when it comes to Nine Inch Nails' chart career. The record was set by "The Day the World Went Away" in August 1999. By debuting and peaking at No. 17, "World" became the highest-charting Nine Inch Nails single of all time. "Hand" is second, and the only other track of five chart entries to appear in the top 40 portion of the list.
