Johnny Cash - Hurt

This has to be one of the greatest covers of all time. Johnny Cash doing Nine Inch Nails song Hurt.

It's such a powerful film clip of an old and tired Cash looking back at his long and crazy career. The retrospective clip is made even more haunting by the fact that this was recorded by Cash less than a year before he passed away and the song became one of his final hits.

Mr Cash you were one crazily awesome man.
