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.

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.
