All Time Worst Cover Songs
The Top Ten
Can't describe the anger and disgust I felt when I saw that crazy stupid bitch sing, IN MY COUNTRY, one of the best rock grunge songs of all time. I mean, who does she think she is, and she did it SO TERRIBLE! She thinks she can one day be stupid pop hanna montana and the other, try to be cool and perform this masterpiece. If Kurt were alive, he'd shoot himself again and I wont blame him. I hate that bitch, no talent at all.
Shes a Butcher! REALLY! She ruined a classical song. Possibly one of the
Best. Nirvana fans shot group together and shoot her
She sounds like at dying cat trying to sing at Kurt cobains great level tell your kids DON'T COVER SMELLS LKE TEEN SPIRIT! And some wonder what happened to her popularity
She Ruined the Whole Song! Nirvana is actually a good band! And this Horrible Singer ruined it for every Nirvana fan!V 44 Comments
What?! How is this in the top 10?! It took an already amazing song and turned it into an even more emotional song. - naFrovivuS
I think the David Bowie hater troll did this. - 445956
445956, the David Bowie hater troll is an idiot but do not EVER compare this excrement, Jeff Buckley) to David Bowie. He never would have a record deal it it was'nt for his father Tim.
Okay, how is this getting so high? Are we being trolled? - naFrovivuSV 3 Comments
Everything britney spears sings becomes terrible at that moment - davee
It made me hate the original version, can't listen to this song any more because of you Britney
Remember the original's powerful, commanding vocals? Why on earth would anyone think that Britney's utterly weak voice would be a good fit for this song?
When an amazing piece of rock and roll perfection is covered by a nasally, autotuned pop star, things don't end well. - JamesBourneV 8 Comments
Kanye West has no right to touch one of Queen's masterpieces, let alone butcher it by FORGETTING THE LYRICS AT A CONCERT. Wow, Kanye. - pandagirl
When I heard panic at the disco slaughter this song like a Jew in Nazi germany, I remembered that this version was far, FAR worse.
I'm not voting for him to be president in 2020 because of this.
There should be so many other reasons why you aren't voting for him to be president - dubsinthetubs
Oh no what has he doneV 14 Comments
The acoustic part at the beginning of the song wasn't bad (it definitely wasn't as good as the original, but I still liked it), but when they started going "Discover L I M P, " I actually felt sick to my stomach. And that third verse was completely unnecessary.
they murdered this wonderful song. the who is the best band ever. - alppa
Awful. They butchered a classic beautiful song with this disgusting cover. The guy can't even get the high notes. Just when you think it couldn't get any worse, they ruin the best part of the song with some silly electronic bit. Limp Bizkit suck and I hate them so much. I'm going to listen to the original to get this piece of crap out of my head.
The original is the only real version. They butcher it to fit themselves - LucretiaV 11 Comments
She screwed up that song to the max. Couldn't get a single lyric right, she shames System. I bet they're all regretting this moment now.
Chop suey! Is one of my favorite songs of all time and she just ruins it! Really what was she thinking ruining a classic
I never thought I would hear a cover song that was worse than Miley Cyrus Smells Like Teen Spirit but this was just awful. She is trying to be something she isn't. She's pop not punk - Danielsun182
I love avril lavigne but this cover isn't good to be honest - RoseCandyMusicV 10 Comments
Nothing like the beatles
In some countries it is legal to shoot a singer who tries to cover a Beatle song and fails like this.
I actually liked this version surprisingly.
Someone get me a firecracker so I can stuff the cracker in his stupid mouth and watch him blow to pieces. Of course, I don't wish for him to die, but for his head to come off.
What? No way! How could he/she cover this masterpiece!
Justin totally ruined a Beatles classic! Screw him! Anybody that thinks JB's version is better, go to hell! The Beatles rule!
Someone get a bounty placed on this thing known as beiberV 11 Comments
Seriously, why would they even bother covering it with absolutely no relation to the original song other than the lyrics?
This takes everything that made this song special and throws it out of the window and gives it a horrible techno beat.
We shouldn't be too hard on the Scissors Sisters. They are big fans of Pink Floyd. What pisses me off is that people say this song was better than the original. What are the thinking? I would say they're on crack but not even then would you say such a thing.
Such a cheesy and stupid cover. - naFrovivuSV 1 Comment
It's (I can't get no) Satisfaction! But yes, Blondie ruined one of my favorite songs of all time! - CastlevaniaFanboy128V 1 Comment
How to make an already bad charity song that SOMEHOW MANAGED TO BECOME A HUGE HIT IN 1985 BECAUSE EVERYONE DID RIDICULOUSLY WEIRD THINGS BACK THEN even worse? Have Justin Bieber open the song, Autotune Barbara Streisand, throw in a deranged Wyclef JeAAAn, pull off the Michael/Janet Jackson duet in the video, add a rap verse, and forget to cut Wyclef Jean from the song. Boom, instant Todd in the Shadows review fodder. (His opinion isn't wrong, by the way.)
I could stand lil Wayne in this song, but after I heard Miley Cyrus, I was like "I give up. I seriously give up on music."
It was already horrible, and this... - WonkeyDude98
The worst cover evvvvvvverrrrrrrrrrrr!
First time I heard the song was covered by Green Day, I don't listen to The Who but I've heard this song and I love Hilary Duff but her version of this this song sucks regardless if a cover or not it sounds horrible.
The Who covers need to stop - Lucretia
One of the worst things ever The original Is one of the Greatest songs of all time, hell I'm listening to it as I type this
Sadly, Madonna's early 2000s pop style cover took away a lot of the charm and emotion the original had. Bad move to say the least. - Entranced98
Here's a tip for Madonna: never put electronic music in a cover for an acoustic song, because it's going to suck.
It's One Direction. 'enough said.
Why can't they make up there own songs? I used to love that song but they ruined it so much!
They do, and they did this for starving people in Africa. So you can just shut up.
One direction ruins everything. Including life.
I know it was for charity, but couldn't they cover something else?V 14 Comments
She really made a meal of this song, Celine failed in doing Angus' duck walk. I really don't have enough time to explain every fault in their cover of one of AC/DC's finest songs! - Dickey96
I completely agree about slayers born to be wild cover... Pure torture to the ears and this is a slayer fan saying this.
AC/DC and The Who have been covered by so (terrible) many people. I respect that people still love them a lot, but please, PLEASE don't cover their songs.
The moment when the original is more popular.V 3 Comments
John Mayer made this song normal boring and forgettable
John Mayer stripped all the heart and soul out of it
Vocals on this one completely trashed up this one
I guess maybe certain songs sound better if sung by girls instead of guys. - Interrogator
Most of the ones in the list I haven't heard the covers. The idea of these singers covering those songs just sounds silly. This one I've heard. Worst. Piece. Of. Crap. Ever.
I really hate this. Kanye's Bohemian Rhapsody is like the actual Bohemian Rhapsody compared to this. - SoldierOfFortune
I hope this cover burns in hell ruins a classic song - christangrant
Marilyn Manson Sucks. - AlphaQV 1 Comment
I can't really explain this one to you. Just look it up. It speaks for itself. - Johannes9V 2 Comments
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.
Punk is not supposed to be screaming random things and singing like a crazed fan. - naFrovivuS
Meh. It's not as bad as I thought it would be, but luke has too much of a sweet voice to pull the chorus off.
