The album became one of the first independently released records to attain platinum certification. On May 12, 2003 the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified the album triple platinum, indicating sales of three million copies in the United States. Although it was critically and commercially successful for an independent label, Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails' only constant band member) feuded with TVT(the album's original label) during its promotion. The album was out of print from 1997 to 2005, because of the much publicized disagreement between Reznor and the record label. Rykodiscre-released the album worldwide in 2005, effectively putting the album back into print. A remastered version was released on November 22, 2010.
