Top 10 Worst Cover Songs by "Metal" Artists


The Top Ten

1 Highway to Hell - Marilyn Manson

This cover is a EXAMPLE of how to ruin a good song...

I know Marilyn Manson isn't metal but he's called one so that's why I added this cover and because this is one of the worst cover songs of all time - christangrant

This one really sucks. - Metal_Treasure

2 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Cradle of Filth

Honestly I don't think this is horribly bad. Makes for a fun listen just for a change every now and then. Obviously the original is leaps and bounds better though. - IronSabbathPriest

Ruined one of the best songs ever - christangrant

3 Closer - Asking Alexandria

If Asking Alexandra is "Metal" than this cover is just awful - christangrant

UListen to Sample
4 Behind Blue Eyes - Limp Bizkit

I may like a little bit of Limp Bizkit but this cover is just awful - christangrant

5 Walk - Avenged Sevenfold

Again debateable if A7X is metal (They Aren't) But I hate this cover with a passion because it ruins one of my favorite songs. - christangrant

6 No Remorse - Cannibal Corpse

The vocals in this cover are awful - christangrant

Oh yes! They ruined it..especially with the vocals - Ananya

Not only did A7X ruin Walk They also ruined a Iron Maiden song - christangrant

8 Anarchy In the U.K. - Megadeth

I don't think it's that bad. Thrash derives from punk and Dave's voice is similar to Johnny Rotten's. - IronSabbathPriest

This cover was just stupid - christangrant

9 I Ain't Superstitious - Megadeth

Poland's solos on this are insane though - VincenzoAureo

Ruins an otherwise solid album. If you replaced this track with the best songs from Killing is my Business then you'd actually have a really brilliant album. - IronSabbathPriest

Just Why Megadteh why did you have to cover a song that wasn't originally a metal song and put it on arguably your best album - christangrant

10 DDAMM - Slayer

Very Forgettable Cover - christangrant

The Contenders

11 Snowblind - System of a Down

I really like this one, it is a good way of showing how to make a song your own. - kempokid

UListen to Sample
12 Sabbra Cadabra - Metallica

I despise this song with a passion, Metallica goes and turns a really good, fast paced song, slows it down, and then goes ahead to ruin it. - kempokid
