“It was a good version, and I certainly wasn’t cringing or anything, but it felt like I was watching my girlfriend fuck somebody else. Or something like that. Anyway, a few weeks later, a videotape shows up with Mark Romanek’s video on it. It’s morning; I’m in the studio in New Orleans working on lack De La Rocha’s record with him; I pop the video in, and… wow. Tears welling, silence, goose-bumps… Wow. I just lost my girlfriend, because that song isn’t mine anymore.”
People also don’t mention that Reznor was not fond of Cash’s version until he saw the music video. There is an interview with Reznor on the DVD of The Work of Mark Romanek where he states that he was disappointed with the song… but received a copy of the music video several months later. He says the music video brought him to tears.
