  • Korey Anderson

    i like the original one the best but i don’t rely like it in my opinion i like there band but not the song they recreated

  • Craig Hagerman

    Was expecting worse, so not too bad.. But to be honest I’m not a fan of Johnny Cash’s version so….

  • Bad Relish

    Freaking insane!

  • Randy Gene Maitrejean Jr

    I hate it when bands totally change the music but keep the lyrics the same and call it a cover.

    • Bob

      how is the music changed? it follows the same harmony and rythyms as the original, only it’s not one guy playing it on an acoustic guitar. not a fan of Dragon Force at all, but this isn’t a bad cover. Honestly I think theres nothing worse than a band who does a cover and it sounds identical to the original. If you don’t put your own spin on it, don’t do it all.

  • Simon

    Definitely interesting. I like it, but I don’t think it can really be compared to any other version. The chorus is strong, though. I appreciate that.

  • Daniel Willen

    As far as covers go, this is the most sounding like the original but retaining to the bands main sound as it gets. I like it.

  • Shawn

    Great great great. This song is a classic and this version is as great tribute, not unlikevJohnny Cash covering NIN and Soundgarden.

  • Vahe Danielyan
