ABSOLUTExclusive: Hundredth Cover Video
 
Cover songs are always a risky thing to do but when you try to cover an iconic song, disaster can strike. Fortunately, hardcore outfit Hundredth takes a successful stab at "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails and made famous by Johnny Cash. You can view the video in the replies and leave your thoughts there a well.

It's not that bad.

Dig the band but not really a fan of the cover.

bang.bang.BANG! 12/19/11 08:54 AM

that was actually pretty rad

Love the band. Love the cover.

hm not bad, definitely made it their own. i gotta say though i never really liked the original version.

Pretty good actually. Wasn't sure the vocals would work out, but he made it work.

I don't like the idea, but the cover isn't so bad. I say this as someone who considers Hurt one of the greatest songs of all time.

Wow this is terrible. Took one of the best songs ever in my opinion and made it horrible. The screaming sounds like it lacks emotion and is just generic. The reason Johnny Cash's version is so famous is because its so haunting and audibly troubling to hear.

EDIT: he has absolutely no variation in his screams

I back this band so hard.

Wasn't sure I liked it at first but then I was sure I did. I like how the cash version is so emotional but in a more haunting/sad way but this is emotional in a more anguished way

Yep, this could have been a decent cover if he had done something, anything else with his voice.

more anguished way? are you kidding? He does even change the tone of his screams the entire song. Get out of here with "more anguished"
