7. Even Trent Reznor seems to think Cash's version is better:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurt_(Nine_Inch_Nails_song)

When Trent Reznor was asked if Cash could cover his song, Reznor said he was "flattered" but worried that "the idea sounded a bit gimmicky." He became a fan of Cash's version, however, once he saw the music video.

I pop the video in, and wow... Tears welling, silence, goose-bumps... Wow. I felt like I just lost my girlfriend, because that song isn't mine anymore... It really made me think about how powerful music is as a medium and art form. I wrote some words and music in my bedroom as a way of staying sane, about a bleak and desperate place I was in, totally isolated and alone. Somehow that winds up reinterpreted by a music legend from a radically different era/genre and still retains sincerity and meaning different, but every bit as pure."

13. Cash...

I think one has to have experienced drug abuse and addiction to really feel that one like he does. Johnny knows what he's singing about.

17. When Johnny sings it, you know he's talking about hurt of the soul.

When Trent sings it, it's about the paint chipping on one of his Bentleys.

18. Even Trent Reznor of NIN would say it was Johnny Cash

http://www.musicradar.com/us/news/guitars/trent-reznor-talks-johnny-cash-168199

"I never got to meet Johnny but I'm happy I contributed the way I did. It felt like a warm hug. For anyone who hasn't seen it, I highly recommend checking it out. I have goose bumps right now thinking about it.

"Having Johnny Cash, one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time, want to cover your song, that's something that matters to me. It's not so much what other people think but the fact that this guy felt that it was worthy of interpreting.

21. Trent gave the pain a voice, but Cash gave it a soul

A soul weighed down by a lifetime's worth of tribulations, no less.

26. At the end of the day...

... Trent Reznor will be a footnote, Johnny Cash wrote the book.
