Is Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” The Greatest Cover of All Time?

Covering a song takes some serious skill. You gotta make the crowd and the listener feel as if it is your song. As we all know, many covers come off as corny, or uninspired. But some, some are even better than the original.

Johnny Cash’s cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt” is one of those covers. Lead singer Trent Reznor went as far as saying “that song isn’t mine anymore.” If this song doesn’t give your entire body goosebumps, you’re not human.

The greatest cover of all time? I think so.
