I like the originals, but some of these covers are not very good. Some are aso live, and don't sound as clean as a studio version. Still, a good mix of covers, but you should also add Dave Matthews Band, who covers quite a bit of old songs, like The Zombies "Time of Season". That is one that is a blast to listen to.

Nine Inch Nails did the original hurt. Johnny Cash covered it.

Ha, my bad. Thanks for filling me in. I just assumed Johnny Cash wrote it, I should've checked that one.
