#17 hit single by Sheryl Crow in summer of 2002.
Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt" was released on his 2002 album, American IV: The Man Comes Around. Rick Rubin, producer of Cash's American series and a friend of Reznor, suggested the song to Cash. The line "crown of shit" was changed to "crown of thorns", like Reznor's censored-for-radio version, not only removing profanity from the lyrics, but also more directly referencing Christ. The cover was released on a single with the B-side "Personal Jesus", a cover of the Depeche Mode single. In September 2010, the song achieved to re-enter the German Singles Chart at number 96, more than 7 years after the song's original release.Lyrics:
