All Time Worst Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Don't Stop Believing - Glee (Journey) Don't Stop Believing - Glee (Journey)

Oh, Journey. What have they done to you?

Its Glee, they could probably fill up every slot after Miley Cyrus' Smells Like Teen Spirit

Glee (or should I say Pee? ) should have called it Stop Believing.

Everyone is on a Journey for a bottle of bleach. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

22 Thrift Shop - Kidz Bop Kids (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis)

"Walk into the club like 'what up, I got a hit song'! " NO YOU DON'T! EVERYONE WITH A BRAIN HATES YOU AND WHAT YOU DID TO THIS OTHERWISE GOOD SONG! When it's performed by Macklemore, it's funny and entertaining. But when Kidz Bop does it, they suck out all the fun! Go jump off a clip, Kidz Bop and whoever decided that them covering it would be a good idea!

I can see these kids throwing a crack party in 2020, the year these kids are going to have child star syndrome.

Why is Kidz Bop still a thing? I just remember every year as a child seeing commercials for 1, 2, 3, 4, etc albums they released. Its always the worst thing ever.

Anything Kidz Bop deserves a spot here.

Stop doing covers. This band sucks anyways. But the first 3 albums were okay

25 Jambalaya - The Carpenters (Hank Williams)

A song about food, sung by a woman who later STARVED herself? Ugh! - Interrogator

26 You Know You're Right - Hole (Nirvana)

Courtney arranged the song differently and messed up the lyrics, singing the wrong ones. I appreciate her doing this for Kurt, but she should've practiced more maybe? - MontyPython

27 Extreme Ways - The Sidelines (Moby)

The original is one of my favourite songs of all time, a lively yet laid-back downtempo beat to go with subtle and mellifluous vocals. A song you love from the first time you hear it, and never stop playing once you do.
The cover? Noise, noise and more noise. - PositronWildhawk

28 You Got It - Bonnie Raitt (Roy Orbison)
29 I Remember - Haley (Deadmau5 & Kaskade)

This isn't a cover. This is the actual song. Good song though

30 I Still Believe - Mariah Carey (Brenda K. Starr)
31 Cats in the Cradle - Ugly Kid Joe (Harry Chapin) V 1 Comment
32 A Hard Day's Night - Big Time Rush (The Beatles)
33 Our Lips Are Sealed - Hilary and Haylie Duff (The Go-Go's)
34 Land of Confusion - Disturbed (Genesis) V 3 Comments
35 Crush On You - Aaron Carter (The Jets)

Vocals on this one completely trashed up this one

I guess maybe certain songs sound better if sung by girls instead of guys. - Interrogator

36 Heaven Is a Place on Earth - Ashley Tisdale (Belinda Carlisle)

Terrible. Having said that, I once dreamed that it was 1989 and Freddie Mercury was doing a bad cover version on a white soundstage, and he had blood all over his face, and it was billed as just "Heaven" on the bootleg that followed...

This not even close to the original version. The first time I heard was a mangled and techy piece of vomit. I love belinda carlisle's version better.

37 Beat it - Fall Out Boy (Michael Jackson)

Really? This is not even the worst Fall Out Boy cover. They covered What's This. That was awful. Why isn't that on here? - pandagirl

This is the worst cover I've ever heard. This terrible song is what made me truly believe that music is dead. I really wish I could un-hear it.

This cover was fantastic. Completely, and utterly. - WonkeyDude98

38 Babe I'm Gonna Leave You - Miley Cyrus (Led Zeppelin

I didn't think it was possible to ruin a Led Zeppelin song. Leave it to Miley to prove me wrong.

39 Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds - William Shatner (The Beatles)

What was William Shatner on when covering this song

What was William Shatner on covering this song

I can't really say it's bad. He covered the song in 1968 wich means we were still in full psychedelic era. I think because of that, that it's campy, a piece of the era itself.

40 Take Another Little Piece of My Heart - Faith Hill (Janis Joplin)
