Johnny Cash did a stark cover of the NIN song "Hurt" with a striking video.
In the video shot in his home in Hendersonville, Tennessee, the 71-year old Cash appears very fragile with no makeup and no attempt to make him look younger. Trent Reznor was so impressed by Cash's take on his song & quite moved by the video to the point where he said he no longer 'owns' this song...
P.S. I'm almost afraid to downplay this by posting here but check out the kermit version :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVYTabWaSHI
