      While this has derailed into a songs that are as good as the original thread, I'll chip in with the classic Simon and Garfunkel song Sound of Silence.
      The Disturbed version, that I believe was used for gears of war, is really very good. One of my favourite songs ever, and I feel very strongly about people covering songs, especially Simon and Garfunkel.

        @Smellyferret: not sure what you mean by which NIN version. He only released one single didn't he? Or are you counting remixes and live versions?
        There are a few versions officially released:
        http://www.nin.wiki/Hurt_(song)

        I like the live ones best, when Trent nails the piano/keyboard that for me is amazing.
        I also like the Cash version, he nailed the vocals and also re purposed the meaning to link with the end of his life, which even Trent has said was great.

        The one above is probably one of my favourites, but I do see NiN every tour... normally multiple times... so I fully admit there may be bias in my opinion! :O

          So you are just counting live versions and remixes? The thing with Trent is he has a habit of remixing his material more than the average dance producer. I think it's fair to say when people talk about Hurt they're referring to his original track rather than the umpteen self-made re-imaginations that exist purely on live and remix albums (of which I do have a few, but they seldom equal his original works let alone surpass them).

          His Bowie duets were particularly poor in my opinion. Bowie's and Trent's style didn't really gel. I think that's one of those gigs that was better experienced than listened to again after the event.

            Just saw the end of Season 2 of Rick and Morty and have some new feels for the original NiN version of Hurt

              I like I'm afraid of Americans , but agree on a lot of the other stuff he did with Bowie.. not the greatest!

              The versions of hurt I linked are the ones released (which is what I thought you were asking initially! )
              And yeah the remix albums were not the greatest either, but I think they were mainly done to fulfill record deals.
