I didn’t think it would’ve been possible to cover Nine Inch Nails’ Hurt in Dutch, but the Heideroosjes manage to pull it off; it’s almost as good as the Johnny Cash version below. The only difference is that Cash brought a history of a life lived with regrets and pain in a way that somebody in his mid-thirties, no matter how good a musician just cannot do. In both cases this is a very masculine song, a very male emotional mix of regret and crippling doubt, self pity and genuine pain, defiantly shouted at the world.
