The only reason I'm posting this is because I don't understand how someone can like the Johnny Cash version of "Hurt". I think it sounds really weird, and it makes me cry, because it's the song WWE played after Eddie Guerrero died. So, yeah, that's my opinion. What's everyone elses?

Johnny Cash version. Then again I'm biased. I don't like NIN.

Is it still real to you?

Cash ftw
um
yes it's real to me, because Eddie Guerrero did die in real life. Why would they say he was dead if he wasn't dead? All these news networks (CNN, Fox, MSNBC) reported it. Yahoo reported it. It' not like he got into a limo and it exploded and he dissappeared for about a month.

NiN has one, maybe two good songs. I don't like any of the other songs, if you can call them 'songs'.

Nine Inch Nails.

I HATE all of Cash's covers, it doesn't get much worse than him ruining "One" or "In My Life" Ughhhh

He's got a unique voice, so what, why does that make him butchering songs good? Hey, any more hits I can sing really really slowly and monotoned?
Just like I wouldn't want to hear Clapton singing "Tom Sawyer"

Cash.

Didn't know they played it for Eddie, but it was great for the commercials for The Shield.

I agree with Martianvirus....NIN has a decent 'song' or two, and that's about it.

Johnny Cash's version of Hurt is arguably the greatest cover of all time.
Agreed, didn't he get a Grammy for it...I like NIN alot, but I thought (and I could be wrong) even the lead singer said his version was better.

It's said that Trent thought it would be too hack and gimmicky, but he was turned around by the video.
Whatever that means.

Cash. Even Reznor admits it. Watch the video. It's amazing.

And the song was gigantic when it came out... I doubt its peak was during a tribute to a wrestler who died because he did drugs and steroids to the point that his heart exploded. Don't cry for him. Cry for yourself for crying for him.
