the idea of an old man singing it, the end of his life, it changes everything

totally different song, and much more hopeless, like it’s… it’s bleak
usually by the time you’re that age, you’ve found resolution.

so to have a sorta twenty-something angst in your sixties or seventies…

it’s not angst anymore,
it’s despair.
it’s brutal

– Malcolm Gladwell and Rick Rubin discussing Johnny Cash’s cover of Hurt by NIN on the Broken Record Podcast
