When Filter's debut album, Short Bus, dropped in 1995, industrial music was reaching a climax of wrench-clanging, steam-valve-sampling glory, typified by the crossover success of a song that featured in its chorus a pre-Hulk Trent Reznor whispering, "I wanna fuck you like an animal." Saucy stuff. Filter's "Hey Man Nice Shot," a vague endorsement of the public suicide of shamed Pennsylvania politician Budd Dwyer, launched them into the spotlight on Nine Inch Nail's coattails, and the band—whose frontman Richard Patrick actually played in NIN at one point—achieved modest success by almost completely aping Reznor's catalog, before finalizing their pop ambitions with the airy 1999 single "Take a Picture." Luckily Helmet are on this bill, too, and they've retained pretty much every inch of their clout since 1992's Meantime. RYAN J. PRADO
