    The_Reverend_M More bass, vicar?

    ... and the Dresden Dolls version is :cool: too.

    Clearly the Fugees version of No Woman No Cry dicks all over the Marley version.

    Do you mean 'Hurt'? I like it but I don't think it beats the NIN version - knowing Trent felt those lyrics just makes it that bit better for me.

    Haven't heard it - will look out for it.
     
  6. Final

    Final efficiency=max effort=min


    1000 homo DJs version of Supernaut was also top notch.

    (Nativity in Black is my all time favourite album though, I think everything on it 10/10.)

    Johnny Cash's cover of NIN's 'Hurt', if it hasn't already been mentioned.

    Cash obviously felt them quite deeply too though, otherwise he wouldn't have covered it & made such an amazingly emotional music video to go with it.
     
  11. Idaho

    Idaho blah blah blah

    I like both oddly enough.

    True but IMO he couldn't have felt them as deeply as the person who wrote them. If I remember correctly Trent was talking about his heroin addiction in that song.
     
  13. Maggot

    Maggot The Cake of Liberty

    St Etienne's version of Only Love can Break Your Heart is much better than Neil Youngs.


    That's not better, it's exactly the same!
     
  14. beeboo

    beeboo geek chic

    Quite looking forward to the album of covers he's doing. :cool:

    But Mr.Cash was a drug crazed mentalist in his own time.

    I agree with Fez909 It's the only version of Seven Nation Army that i play now. It's way better :cool:
