Covers that you might not have known are covers: "Hurt"

Lots of times, the most familiar version of a song isn't the original version. I'll be posting some of these "covers that you might not have known are covers" on Saturdays.

The original Nine Inch Nails version of "Hurt" is pretty well known too, but the Johnny Cash cover was a little more popular. Anyway, they're both brilliant.

Familiar version: Johnny Cash (2002)
Original version: Nine Inch Nails (1994)

  1. I like these posts a lot. I'd never heard the Johnny Cash version before.

  2. It's a cover that you may not have known existed hahaha. I have lots more queued up.

  3. I'm not very current on music, but I actually knew about both of these versions.


What do you think?
