Cover Tuesday, Pt. 13

Happy Tuesday to everybody, and Happy Passover to those of you who’re of the Jewish persuasion. Today’s Cover Tuesday features covers by The Man in Black himself from his American Recordings series, produced by master knob-turner Rick Rubin. Some are collaborations with other artists (Tom Petty singing backup on his song “I Won’t Back Down” and Joe Strummer performing a last tribute duet with his hero), and they all have a weary grace that few other artists ever manage to convey. Enjoy:

Johnny Cash – I Won’t Back Down (Tom Petty cover) (Buy It)

Johnny Cash – Personal Jesus (Depeche Mode cover)

Johnny Cash – Hurt (Nine Inch Nails cover) (Buy It)

Johnny Cash – Redemption Song with Joe Strummer (Bob Marley cover) (Buy It)

Johnny Cash – God’s Gonna Cut You Down (Traditional cover) (Buy It)
