Miley Cyrus has truly shown her love for Nine Inch Nails over the years. Back in 2019, she debuted “On A Roll,” a lighter version of “Head Like A Hole,” while starring as Ashley O on Black Mirror. She also put her personal spin on their track “Right Where It Belongs,” which got a seal of approval from Trent Reznor. “On A Roll” went on to debut at No.19 on Billboard‘s Pop Digital Song Sales chart, giving the Nine Inch Nails classic some newfound love.
Now, it looks like Cyrus may be planning to release a new cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Head Like A Hole.” On Tuesday, she shared a brief clip of her belting out the song’s lyrics. She also paid subtle tribute to Ashley O with the hashtag #AshleyOGoneWild.

This video has led to speculation that Cyrus may be reprising her Ashley O role for a new Black Mirror season. However, nothing has been confirmed so far.
This isn’t the first rock cover Cyrus has shared over the past few months. Her latest album Plastic Hearts includes her previous covers of Blondie‘s “Heart Of Glass” and the Cranberries‘ “Zombie.” As well, she also covered Hole‘s “Doll Parts” late last year. The emotional cover eventually earned a response from Courtney Love who had a few things to say about it.
Currently, Cyrus is working on a Metallica covers album. Prior to the release of Plastic Hearts, Cyrus revealed that Metallica are one of the bands that inspired the sound on her new rock album. Shortly after, she confirmed that she is officially recording a Metallica covers album.
“We’ve been working on a Metallica covers album and I’m here working on that,” she told Interview Magazine in October 2020.
“I did a Metallica cover of ‘Nothing Else Matters’ featuring Elton John on piano,” she says. “I’ve got Yo-Yo Ma, Chad Smith [Red Hot Chili Peppers]; so many all-stars. I’m so excited about this collaboration. I’m really stoked. I love when ingredients don’t quite fit.”
“On A Roll” is available to stream below.
