It's an interesting concept, 'better'? How can it be 'better' when it is following the same notes/format as the original? I too love Johnny Cash's version of Hurt, mainly I think because of his senior vocals matching perfectly with the more acoustic version and message contained within the song, and also because it was his last song, seems fitting and all those things make it feel a 'better' song.
But it's pretty much a direct copy chord for chord. If you have seen Trent live, when he performs this he also owns it, it is his baby after all...

I also like Manson versions, 'I put a Spell on You' being one example. Interesting to turn a song that was originally nothing to do with 'heavy metal' and warp it into a fury angst of intensity! If anyone has watched 'The Lost Highway' (by David Lynch) will also appreciate the song placement in the film, it is featured in a very powerful scene and for me I find the two inseparable. I hear this version of the song, I see images of that film in my mind also.

I'm also a pretty huge remix fan. Remixes also bring something new to the table. Hybrid is one EDM band that is hell bent on remixes, and I always seem to prefer their 'take' on a track than the original.
