171 Lavagasm Zevon and Cash died within the same week? TIL. What a shitty week for music!
446 Eathurl I remember being excited that he was going to attend the MTV awards. Getting bummed hearing he cancelled because he had gotten sick only to die a few days later. (Happy memory) I took a trip to Korea when I was 18 and all of the friends I made made were pushy about me playing his music. It was weird, but exciting. They all seemed to love it. I just remember being out there having a good fuckin' time with Cash's music in my ear. Now every time I think of Korea I think of Cash.
108 Austin_RC246 The sheer number of celebrities in this music video is mind blowing. From all walks too, movie stars to Kanye fucking West
123 fulminedio One of my favorite songs of his, Cocaine Blues
78 loki0203 "I fly a starship Across the Universe divide And when I reach the other side I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can Perhaps I may become a highwayman again Or I may simply be a single drop of rain But I will remain And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again" - Johnny Cash's verse from the Highwayman
33 jj_87 This won a Grammy for Best Short Form Music Video, back in 2008. I vividly remember showing it to my college classmates on YouTube, who didn't really listen to Cash; they started identifying all the celebrities in the video as it played, only to fall in some sort of trance to the music halfway.
263 Daid79 It's an amazing song, and yes "Sooner or later god is going to cut you down". Love it.
27 patrickkingart Love love love this song. It's so mean and intense.
22 allenme I've jsut about always loved this song because it feels menacing without any sort of malice
23 penultimate_supper Thanks so much for this OP! I grew up listening to Johnny Cash in the 90s, but haven't really listened in years. This post launched me on a few hours of listening and it was so worth it. Very different music to listen to now than in my teens. Thought this song was appropriate today: [ain't no grave](
20 MannyTostado18 "Well you may throw your rock and hide your hand, working in the dark against your fellow man. But as sure as God made black and white, what's done in the dark will be brought to the light." That's some real, righteous, vigilante justice fuel right there.
35 DankandSpank I've always loved this song, and felt that cash almost raps to the beat. It's a very beautiful song.
139 high-and-seek I am so fucking old. I remember I was in my 1st year of college when Cash passed and my teacher was torn up over it. This was 14 years ago!? Geeeezzzzz
12 Ablemane Can't believe it's been 14 years already. Cash was something special. I would encourage anyone to look up Reznor's thoughts on this one. Cash really was a legend until the day he died.
