Ex-Anthrax singer Neil Turbin has shared an acoustic cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt.” You can check that out below:
“I was familiar with Nine Inch Nails’ ‘The Downward Spiral’ and eventually the Johnny Cash [version of ‘Hurt’] around a decade later which helped shed new focus on Johnny Cash and his brilliant song and video performance.
My reason for covering the song is having something in common with Trent Reznor besides being a singer songwriter and that is that I have been at the former house of his on Cielo Drive in Benedict Canyon. The feeling and energy I felt while there made the hair on my arms stand on end and gave me chills. I’m not saying that for effect. I just felt some very strong feelings that were not something I normally feel or hardly ever feel. With that being said, I went home that night and started to look up the address since intuitively I felt compelled to try to figure out why I was feeling what I felt. Once I researched it and found out the unbelievable history, I re-discovered this song after some time reviewing related songs. I felt very connected to this brilliant song.”
