Try the Northern Kings version - doom metal style. They made this sad song sound extremely dark. - Metal_Treasure
The Northern Kings' version makes me hide in anticipation of the stalker.V 2 Comments
One of the best covers in history
When you look at you tube MTV Icons The Cure you will know. So bombastic and well played. I think it's better than the original. The whole entourage is matching with the performance
Perfection, I love the guitar riffs. They just perfected this song
I've lost respect for most cover songs because I know none of them can be as good as this one. I love Johnny Cash and the original song, but I'll honestly say that this is just as good as the original. Very rare for cover song. While the Johnny Cash version is more acoustic and calm, this is definitely more rock and roll. The electric guitar in this cover is very loud and heavy, but it's also controlled. This is actually one of my favorite songs to play on electric guitar, because of how simple yet complicated it is.
A+ - JamesBourne
Should be in the top 100!
As with their version of 'Love Hurts', Nazareth have got a real knack to bring life and soul into other artists' songs.
One of the most covered songs ever, sadly this version is very little known, considering it's pretty good. Shaw's backing group is quite awesome.
Raw vocals, emotion, moving guitar solo (controlled feedback). Great cover.
