True Facts: Part A

Trent Reznor wrote the song "The Perfect Drug" for his dog, Harold. It was a love song to his K-9, originally titled "The Perfect Pug". David Lynch (also a fan of pugs) heard a demo of the song, and asked Reznor for a mastered version of it for the Lost Highway soundtrack. However the song was too similar to the Louis Armstrong ballad, "Me and My Perfect Pug are on Top of the World," so Reznor changed the lyrics to avoid a legal dispute.
