Worst Cover Songs Done By Pop Punk Bands

Man, Pop Punk band’s always gotta ruin great songs. These are the worst cover songs done by pop punk bands. Note: I actually had to listen to these songs just to make this list. So I suffered for you so you don’t have too. I hope your happy because i’m not.

The Top Ten

1 Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Neck Deep

I am a huge fan of Green Day, and I have to say this is legit the worst cover song i’ve ever heard. Neck Deep made BOBD a faster pumped up version of the song. And it’s absolutely awful. There’s a reason why I don’t like cover songs that much, and this song pretty much gives an example to my point. - RadioHead03

2 Rap God - The Animal In Me

Honestly, I think there aren't many people who can rap that ultra fast section like Eminem did. This cover doesn't help at all. - Userguy44

Was it really necessary to make a cover song on this song? It just feels pointless honestly. It doesn’t even work. I’m not a fan of Eminem, but come on this is ridiculous. - RadioHead03

3 Take On Me - Reel Big Fish

I don't love this song, but I think it's okay. The original version is still a lot better, though. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

Real Big Fish turned one of the most iconic 80’s songs into a hipster fest. And that’s quite sad. - RadioHead03

4 Gangsta's Paradise - Falling In Reverse

I prefer the amish - shadomatrix

You might know Gangsta’s Paradise from the Sonic movie, but just be thankful they didn’t use this version. - RadioHead03

5 Beat It - Fall Out Boy

Fall Out Boy ruined a fantastic Michael Jackson song with this terrible cover. If you want a decent MJ Pop Punk cover, go listen to Smooth Criminal by Alien Ant Farm. Not a fan of the band, but it’s actually decent. - RadioHead03

6 We Are the Champions - Mayday Parade

This is a terrible cover. It sounds like they aren’t even trying honestly. The Bohemian Rhapsody cover by Panic! At The Disco is better than this, and I don’t even like Panic! At The Disco. - RadioHead03

7 Umbrella - All Time Low

Yes, this band actually did a cover version on Rihana’s song. And it’s very annoying. - RadioHead03

8 Just the Way You Are - Pierce the Veil

Ew, this song is absolutely whiny. Play this song in front of your friends, and I guarantee you will not have anymore friends in your lifetime. - RadioHead03

9 Another Girl Another Planet - blink-182

Blink 182 ruined an old British classic with this terrible cover. And we have to listen to Tom’s annoying vocals in the background. - RadioHead03

10 Free Fallin' - The Almost

Another classic 80’s song ruined by a crap ton of whining. - RadioHead03

The Contenders

11 Payphone - Crown the Empire
