Broken is the first extended play (EP) by American industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails, released on September 22, 1992 by Nothing, TVT, and Interscope Records. Produced by frontman Trent Reznor and Flood, it consists entirely of new material and replaces the synth-pop style of the band's 1989 debut album Pretty Hate Machine with a considerably heavier sound that would act as a precursor to their second album The Downward Spiral (1994). The music videos that accompanied five of the eight tracks were widely censored from television airplay due to their explicit content. Nevertheless, the song "Wish" won the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance at the 35th Grammy Awards, and the Woodstock '94 performance of "Happiness in Slavery" won the same award at the 38th Grammy Awards.
