30 Days of Songs, Day 24

Day 24: Your favorite cover song.

I'll say it. In general, covers suck. They're too often lazy attempts to cash in nostalgia. They fill up concert time when I really just came to hear you play your music.

There are great bands that do terrible jobs covering other people's songs (think U2). There are great bands that covered all the time and never well (think the Beatles).

The only way a cover can be really good is if the artist brings something new to it.

So I'm totally going to rip off my sweetie on this one. She chose one of the best covers of all time, and honestly I can't think of a better one.

If you can watch and listen to this and not be touched in some way, there is something wrong with you.

"Hurt" by Johnny Cash, originally performed by Nine Inch Nails
