Hell, Everlast should have covered Stairway to Heaven while he was at it too. He could have sampled House of Pain's Jump Around as it's backing track.
Who let this happen at the Cash camp? Or was it Columbia? Who has the rights to "Folsom Prison Blues" these days? I think it's either House of Cash, Inc. or Sun Entertainment Corporation. Whoever it is, has chosen poorly by allowing Everlast to cover this.
The video is atrocious. Preposterous. Pompous. Blasphemous. I am appalled. Really. My spirit, and more importantly, Cash's legacy, just died a little bit.
I have no doubt that JC is rollin' over here.
(and yes, I took this picture of the Cashs' grave site in my pilgrimage there two years ago.)
At first I thought "that's funky" but mid-track I just wanted to hurl. Hopefully people wil hear it and check out JC's original instead.
Song is a disgrace to anyone who appreciates music anywhere. So sad.
