Lacey Sturm and Co. delivered explosive rendition of "Something I Can Never Have"

In the summer of 2006, Flyleaf hit the road on the latest edition of Korn's Family Values tour. Jonathan Davis and Co. co-headlined the trek with fellow nu-metal OGs Deftones, while Stone Sour, Dir en grey, 10 Years, Deadsy, Bury Your Dead, Walls of Jericho and more filled out the bill.

In addition to seven originals off their self-titled album, released just the year before, Flyleaf's set included a heart-on-sleeve cover of Nine Inch Nails' "Something I Can Never Have," a fan-favorite cut on both the industrial-rock leaders' Pretty Hate Machine as well as the Trent Reznor-curated Natural Born Killers soundtrack.

The NIN song would be a staple of Flyleaf's set from 2006 to 2009 (played over 80 times, according to, with the Texas upstarts flipping the miserabilist anthem into a nu-metal power ballad. Singer Lacey Sturm's idiosyncratic voice fit Reznor's vocal lines surprisingly well, and together with her bandmates, she took the song to a massive conclusion complete with gnarly roars straight out of Flyleaf's own iconic "I'm So Sick."
