BH- Gary Numan- Metal

Gary Numan's original version of Metal was first released in 1979 as part of his first album 'Pleasure Principal' (first released under his name anyway...) The song is said to be very popular live and Numan has performed with 
Nine Inch Nails to sing both 'Metal' and 'Cars' live during the last ever Nine Inch Nails Wave Goodbye Tour

In 1998 (two years before the Nine Inch Nails Cover) Gary Numan released a re-worked version of his song 'Metal' with a very very different style to the original, much darker and almost in fit with the Nine Inch Nails version.

We can see a great example of user generated content there, someone adding images of Gary Numan singing, making their own video for the song.
