Hurt is a classic!

This last year I heard a Gregorian chant of "Hurt" and thought it was great someone was doing a cover of this fantastic NIN song.

Just today I found another version but by Johnny Cash! So Trent didn't create the song, but Johnny Cash? Bizarre! When I first heard the song by NIN I had always associated the song with them, come to find out it is a classic!

Definitely something new I learned today.

Just because Johnny Cash did the song doesn't mean he was first. I found out that NIN actually did create the song and Johnny Cash did a cover of it and not the other way around.

I love Johnny Cash's music (not necessarily his life) and this song is much more my style than the NIN version. From whay I know, he did this coversong shortly before he died.
