While Reznor does have some kind words to say about Manson, saying, "He used to be the smartest guy in the room. And as a fan of his talents, I hope he gets his s--- together," the disdain is evident. In the interview, Reznor says the feud dates back down to the 'Downward Spiral' tour in '94 and '95.

And before you say it, Reznor recently proclaimed his own doucheness: "I might be happy and engaged, but I'm still a prick."
