There's a Covers topic somewhere, but not a topic for covers that suck.

Britney Spears - Satisfaction (Rolling Stones)
Dave Mathews Band - All Along the Watchtower (Bob Dylan) Although I highly approve of the Hendrix version.
Fall Out Boy - Beat It (Michael Jackson)
Flyleaf - Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana)
Thrice - Eleanor Rigby (The Beatles)
Atreyu - Epic (Faith No More)
Limp Bizkit - Behind Blue Eyes (The Who)
The Killers - Shadowplay (Joy Division)
Jessica Simpson - Take My Breath Away (Berlin)
Avril Lavinge - Fuel (Metallica)
Kanye West - Drunk & Hot Girls (Does this count? He used the music and vocal melody of Can's "Sing Swan Song", just different words.)


Look them up if you dare. Share with me the crappy covers you have come across.

I'm not a fan of the style changes DMB made, so it made my list.

Holy shit, Hilary Duff covered The Who's "My Generation" facepalm.gif

hi-C
Death Cab's cover of "This Charming Man" is THE WROST. It sounds like they just did the damn thing and didn't care about getting the lyrics right. It's like, damn, if you're gonna do a cover, at least google the words before you do! Embarrassing.

I have a visceral, irrational hate of this song (the Kanye song). Don't even ask me to explain it, because I can't.

Off the top of my head, American Idol's cover of Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours". Butchered it into little pieces.

Joanne

Gigi
The Fall Out Boy cover is TERRIBLE.

You should think of it as a masterpiece.

Not going to lie, I have Youthquake on vinyl and really should go dust it off and give it a listen. It's weird that a lot of people consider them one hit wonders, and especially that they consider them one hit wonders for that song when they had other songs that charted better in the US (and other countries).



Powerman 5000 butchered Radiohead's Creep. Sucks more than when Korn did it.
butre
It's alright considering it's live. Powerman 5000 has always been really shitty live.

Hilary Duff did a cover of Reach OUt and Touch Me by Depeche Mode.



BOOOOOOOOOOOOO
