With The Walking Dead airing its 9th season this October, everyone is sad to learn that Andrew Lincoln might be leaving the show for good.
This reminds us of Andy’s interview with EW in 2014 in which he said, “It’s funny, because I was in the car yesterday, and I texted Scott Gimple and I said, ‘Promise me, when I die, on the credits sequence, you play Johnny Cash’s version of Hurt.’ And he just said, ‘I can’t make that promise obviously.’ So when I die, please print it in your magazine so that the fans will know to play it, even if we can’t. Even if Scott Gimple decides not to, please everybody play Hurt.”
So whether or not they decide to play Johnny Cash’s Hurt on the credits sequence, remember to play it.
And what’s stopping us from playing it now? Here’s Hurt by Johnny Cash.
