I think you could include pretty much every track from Johnny's cover album(s) and not put a foot wrong. He took them all to another place.
Very true. Probably moreso being a NIN fan and coming to the conclusion that Cash did a better version of the song than Reznor ever could...and he admits to it as well!

I used to listen to the Downward Spiral a lot back in the day, then later on in life got into Cash and liked his version, but always though despite the Cash version being better the original was still a great song.

Put the original on one day and couldn't believe how crap it was in comparison!

Do you really think Pennywise' cover of Land Down Under is good? Do you actually listen to it and say "Wow, this is a great song, I love the way they did this and that".

I just can't believe that anyone could think that.

I couldn't care less what you like. For your information, I do like it. You post a lot of stuff on here I don't like, but that's your right to express it, hence why I don't worry about it.

Pennywise fans don't like what I post, I'll call that a win.

A NIN fan doesn't like what you post. I wouldn't call it crap in comparison at all. Cash's voice definitely lends to the lyrics but I prefer the original. Trent Reznor has come a LONG way since The Downward Spiral.

Gary Jules covering Tears for Fears

Nirvana covering David Bowie

Happy Mondays covering/take on a John Kongos song

I like a good cover version. Here's a couple of favourites right now:


Extra points for anyone who knows where you can see an ex Buffalo member playing in the front bar of a well known Sydney music venue with an ex AC/DC member.

My favorite band, The Dropkick Murphys do a lot of Irish trad and folk covers.

A couple to look up, The Fields of Athenri, The Old Triangle, The Green Fields of France.

Carnival in Coal are pretty sweet, but nobody does Richard Cheese better than Richard Cheese.
The novelty wore off in 2 seconds with that one.
