I was watching American Idol when this kid covered
Johnny Cash's 'Ring of Fire' and made it 'unique.' One of the judges said something along the lines of 'this is what it would sound like if NIN covered a country tune." I googled to see if I could get the correct statement, but instead I got MTV commentary
I agree, Randy does NOT know NIN at all, hahaha.
---"8:51 pm - Simon thought it was “self-indulgent rubbish.” Randy thought it sounded like Nine Inch Nails covering a country tune. Wrong, Randy. It sounded more like what Britney Spears would do if she covered that song on tour. Interestingly enough, Johnny Cash famously covered a Nine Inch Nails song. The country and industrial worlds have collided before. It’s not as weird as you think."
EDIT - found the video and you can hear Randy's NIN comment.
