This is just totally bugging me out, so i thought i'd post it...has anyone seen/heard the Johnny Cash cover of NIN's Hurt? Most bizarre fucking thing I have EVER seen. Don't get me wrong, Johnny Cash is mad cool, but it was just so....odd 0_o I just caught it on VH1.

And the video is directed by Mark Romanek, the guy who directed NIN's 'Closer', to boot.

What are your feelings towards it?

I love the song, but I haven't seen the video yet. My friend told me it was kind of weird... I have to look for it now...

I didn't like it very much. But then again I don't really like Johnny Cash anyway.

Pat Boone's cover of "Enter the Sandman" has a nice, brassy intro. :P

I saw the end of the video a few days ago... what on earth is up with the Christ images??? The part I saw was like ... um...ok? I like the song but I'm a little unsure of the video, or at least the end of it...
