Both songs were great, but which verison of "Hurt" was better? Nine Inch Nails, or the Johnny Cash remake?

Johnny Cash, but they're both amazing.

Cash's version is better imo, as the lyrics are clearer, and I prefer the chords in major.

However, Cash did a lot of covers in his twilight years, and most didn't reach the level of the original, i.e. Rusty Cage, Won't Back Down, Personal Jesus & Forever Young.

Nine Inch Nails are one of my favorite bands of all time, and the song's incredible, but Cash wins because a legend on his way out, broken, battered, slowly approaching death, sang his heart out, and the emotion on the track is staggering.

Nothing wrong with the NIN version. Hell, I own it. But you can hear the pain in Cash's voice.
