Trent Reznor is pretty much hating the the Pretty Hate Machine re-issue and took to Twitter to tip off fans about the latest catalog offering, according to Billboard.biz.

Calling last week's release, "a record label bullshit move repackaging the old version," the Nine Inch Nails frontman continued via Twitter, "Ignore please." He told his 928,595 followers, "don't waste your money on this version of PHM that was just released: http://www.nincatalog.com/item.asp?key=01-00275 ."

A subsidiary of Universal music rereleased NIN's 1989 debut Pretty Hate Machine, without any re-mastering. The tweet linked a catalog entry for the release, which itself said the re-release is "very similar to the TVT version" and "not remastered." TVT is the album's original label.
