The first taste of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' soundtrack for The Social

I have to admit, sometimes we post stuff on Twitter and I forget to follow up right away on our actual webpage. Such was the case when the official website for The Social Network went online. Of interest to you, dear reader, is the background music, which some initially speculated was Nine Inch Nails. What little obfuscation there was in the Flash files was no match for NIN fans, who quickly traced the audio back to an MP3 hosted on Sony Pictures' website, titled "Hand Covers Bruise (no piano)" and credited to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. You can listen to a stream at Antiquiet, who give a shout to OneThirtyBPM for Jordan Raup's link, which Mr. Raup first posted first on The Film Stage. In the unlikely event that Sony takes the MP3 down from their site, you can download it from OneThirtyBPM.

Thanks to AcolorfulmonstR and Tony B for sending in the news.
