In the Mac vs. PC war, Mac has a friend in the Nine Inch Nails camp. The Blue Screen of Death appears after a computer--most likely a Windows one, but the BSOD can also appear on other platforms--encounters a system error so severe that it must shut down immediately to prevent serious damage.

The Nine Inch Nails tech team has integrated the PC Blue Screen of Death image as a part of their concert. The BSOD pops up for a split second near the end of the song The Great Destroyer. When it suddenly appears, the nerds in the audience go wild, thinking they have seen another PC Epic Fail. Watch it in this video at about 5:27.
