NIN version was good but I think knowing Cash was dying makes this beyond epic.

Funny. when my 16 year old son played me the latest Red Hot Chili Peppers song he was into. I was like "is that subterranean homesick blues?" kind of baffled him that I knew that.

Tainted Love threw me for a loop.

I got into the chill peppers from a song they "wrote" years ago.

Proof in point I think.

My freinds and family are very much against this being the song as I am taken down the isle in a bo to.

I ask for very little in life but demand that when I go out I go out to this song and if someone needs to bring a 12k sound system and grandma is not happy then so be it.
