I am not a Beatles fan at all, so I think the group "Pain" did a better job on the cover.

Johnny Cash is one of my all time favorites and infinitely higher on my list than NIN, but for some reason, I don't care much for his version of that song. I know it's weird, most people like it better. I just prefer the NIN version.
