If I want to hear an old guy grunt, I'll just crash next to my Dad.

NIN.

The Downward Spiral is a concept album so hurt makes more sense if you listen to the whole album. Hurt by NIN is definitely the superior version, but I can see why most people would think the Johnny Cash version is better seeing how it is an easier listen, which hurt is not supposed to be.

Some people claim that Trent sings it better and with more emotion, what planet are you living on? Johnny actually has emotion in his version, Trent sings it like he is reading a menu. Trent sings slowly and softly, there is no emotion at all. If you can't tell the difference between slow/soft and emotional you clearly no nothing about music.

I actually read an interview with Trent in which he stated that Johnny Cash had taken this song and made it so that he 'owned it', and admitted that he personally liked Cash's version better.

The orginal moves me more. Trent just sings it with more emotion.. So I vote for NIN version

Amazing how many songs on this site are covers of Cash songs or were covered by him.

Cash's version only sounds haunting cuz he died after making it. No one would care about if if he was still alive today. Come on everybody everyone knows that Trent sounds 100 times better and if you heard it live by NIN you certainly know what I mean.

Cash made this such a haunting, honest song that wrapped up the end of his life. Brutal.
