Social Distortion: Ring of Fire

I'm not a big fan of punk rock in general, but there are some great punk covers of classic songs.  This is the Johnny Cash song "Ring of Fire" covered by the band Social Distortion.


  1. Well, if Johnny Cash can do a cover of Nine Inch Nails' HURT, why not?

  2. That reminds me, Johnny Cash does do some great covers. My favorite are Devil's Right Hand and Solitary Man.

  3. Yes, he did a really good version of Solitary Man. & I say this as a big Neil Diamond fan.
    I will admit that listenning to Cash's recordings the last few years before he dies is a bittersweet experience as you can hear the wear & tear in his voice of all he went through.
