All Time Worst Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 4XW

61Downtown Train - Rod Stewart (Tom Waits)
62Reach-out - Hilary Duff (Depeche Mode)

The song was great until hilary duff ruined it

This isn't a cover, it's a sample of Personal Jesus.
But I do agree it sucks. - Swellow

63Wonderwall - One Direction (Oasis)

Those tasteless idiots should not dare to cover any song by Oasis. Oasis deserves respect, not shame from some low-brow commercial pop band.

Why isn't 5sos - teenage dirtbag or pierce the veil - don't fear the reaper on here?

64Have You Seen Her - MC Hammer (The Chi-Lites)
65Sweet Child O' Mine - Sheryl Crow (Guns N' Roses)

Taking slash away from something is of course going to make it worse

66True Faith - George Michael (New Order)
67Whiskey In the Jar - Metallica (Thin Lizzy)

You do realise Thin Lizzy didn't sing the original. That was Lena Bourne Fish. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

This cover ROCKS do yourself a favour and go listen to it

What do you mean? This cover is one of the best covers I've ever heard! such a great metal song

Absolute garbage! Thin Lizzy made one of the best songs of all time and Metallica, who are a pathetic excuse for music, went ahead and ruined it!

68Your Song - Ellie Goulding (Elton John)
69Crank That - I Set My Friends On Fire (Soulja Boy)

It's just the song but with screaming and growling instead.

70Twist and Shout - Salt-N-Pepa (The Top Notes)
71Fight the Power - Korn (Public Enemy)

The Korn version's pretty freaky, I agree.

72Stronger - 30 Seconds to Mars (Kanye West)

Kanye's a talentless freak. It would be difficult to do worse than him at anything. - PositronWildhawk

73Tuesday's Gone - Metallica (Lynyrd Skynyrd)

I like Metallica and all but this one was bad

74American Idiot - 5 Seconds of Summer (Green Day)

Although I really love both bands, I feel like 5SOS ruined such an amazing Green Day song... I was very disappointed

Those stupid boys covered, really bad, one of the best Punk Song ever. That's almost blasphemy.

They just scream and make random noises. Not real punk. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

76Stairway to Heaven - Mary J Blige (Led Zeppelin)V1 Comment
77Come Together - Michael Jackson (Beatles)

While I think technically anything Limp Bizkit touches turns into utter crap. Seriously Michael!? Did you really think that say "Walrus Cracker" was a good idea?

The only reason I voted was to ask... What public? This song on this list? Mj rocked this song.. Being a Beatles fan I think that Mj did it better than them...

Mj butchered this awesome song. Mj is overrated

80Sound of Silence - Passenger (Simon and Garfunkel)

He sounds like a five year old, and a winy one at that
