Cover vs. Original

Ring of Fire


The German band H-Blockx versus Johnny Cash! The original by Cash is a real classic and THE Cash-song par excellence. But the H-Blockx version has also lots of power in it. So my vote goes to the H-Blockx.

I'm with Mike from Cincinnati on this one. Social D's version is fantastic and a better cover as Drew Davis pointed out.

Johnny Cash popularized the song and his version is good, but it is also a cover. The original Ring of Fire was recorded by Anita Carter in 1962.

Social Distortions cover is better than H blockx, so I don't know why it wasn't chosen instead.

If there's a Cash cover I like it's Blitzkid's version of "I Walk the Line". But Cash's still Cash no matter what.

Hello, his name is Jonhny Cash!

Comparing a John R. original to a cover by any band whatsoever is kind of like comparing Michelangelo's original "David" to a cheesy replica in a home garden store.
