Johnny Cash's Hurt was originally a Nine Inch Nails song. A lot of people think it's his, although NIN said themselves it's his now since he mastered it so much.

Oh yes.  If you really want to have fun, tell a hardcore Nine Inch Nails fan that Johnny Cash's was the original.  Some of them get really touchy about it for some dumb reason.

I think that goes the same for Twist And Shout. It might not be an original, but it more or less IS the Beatles' now. It's the most popular version and they completely destroy it in a good way (just like John's vocal cords!)

I always used to think it was originally by Cash as well. I guess that's what happens when a cover version becomes more well known than the original. Guess you can't blame people for thinking that. I do hate it when you tell someone it's originally by someone else and they just keep on saying it's not and that the cover version is the original.

Having never heard it, I can fully say that Nine Inch Nails is about the least likely band I can think of for Johnny Cash to have covered.

Johnny Cash did a lot of covers that you wouldn't expect him to do later in his life.  You can see this if you go to Wikipedia and look up the albums American RecordingsUnchainedAmerican III: Solitary ManAmerican IV: The Man Comes AroundAmerican V: A Hundred Highways, and/or American VI: Ain't No Grave.

Personally, I like both versions and both artists.  I'm a bigger Nine Inch Nails fan than I am a Johnny Cash fan, but I think that Johnny Cash did it better.

Looking at those albums, the Beck, U2, Sting, NIN, and OOOO HE DID In My Life MUST YOUTUBE covers really stick out.
