Marilyn Manson Releases Cover of “God’s Gonna Cut You Down,” And It’s A Bit Different Than Johnny Cash’s Version

“God’s Gonna Cut You Down” or “Run On” has been recorded by many people over many decades including Odetta, Elvis, and most famously by Johnny Cash.

In Cash’s version (recorded in 2003), the video features a bunch of big-name celebrity cameos – the music video was released three years after Johnny passed away in 2006 and racked up nearly 90 million YouTube views.

There’s a new version of the folk classic from Marilyn Manson and it’s not something you want to watch before bed.

See what you think.
