Yesterday, the sci-fi show revealed that we would be getting the full music video from Cyrus’ character and now, it’s finally here!
Check out the Ashley O remake of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like A Hole” below.
The third Black Mirror episode, “Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too,” has the singer/actress in the role of a pop star. However, she’s not just singing any old pop tracks or even her own.
Within the episode, Cyrus performs as Ashley O, but the track may sound a bit familiar. Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker reveals he penned new lyrics to be placed over the 1989 Nine Inch Nail track “Head Like A Hole” to produce Ashley O’s “On A Roll.”
The day after the season’s premiere, the singer teased that the Black Mirror track was coming. Yesterday, Black Mirror confirmed that the video would be released today.

As mentioned, Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker gave the lyrics an update.
In “Head Like A Hole,” frontman Trent Reznor sings, “Head like a hole / Black as your soul / I’d rather die than give you control / Bow down before the one you serve / You’re going to get what you deserve.”
In Black Mirror, Cyrus sings, “Hey there, whoah-ho, I’m on a roll / Riding so high, achieving my goals / I’m so stoked on ambition and verve / I’m gonna get what I deserve.”

Brooker got the sample cleared by Reznor personally who was pretty happy with it.
“Trent got it straight away,” Brooker said at a press conference. “It was via email and he was really happy pretty quickly. He wanted to see the script and I got to re-write his lyrics in a chirpy way.
“I’m not the best lyricist in the world,” he continued. “In the first song she’s singing: ‘I’m stoked on ambition and verve’ instead of ‘You’re gonna get what you deserve’.”
