Cash meets Reznor

April 6, 2008

I never would have guessed that Johnny Cash had covered one of my favorite Nine Inch Nails songs, but here you have it:

Cash is such a talented person that his music is even considered good across a fairly wide spectrum of my generation, including one of the most cynical punk-rockers I’ve ever met.  Of course, Cash isn’t the only musical giant to have covered this song.  (WARNING: the previous link includes graphic drug use by muppets.)

    From “American IV: The Man Comes Around”.  The last CD I ever bought retail (few are worth it, this one is).

    Reznor was quoted as saying that ‘Hurt’ had become Cash’s song after his cover of it. Seriously, this video is one of the most powerful videos I’ve ever seen and does justice to the medium.

    One of the best covers ever. I was never a Reznor fan, but Cash (IMO) showed how great that song really could be. And I agree with EdK, the entire CD is worth it.
