All Time Worst Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Jambalaya - The Carpenters (Hank Williams)

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

22 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

23 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

24 Angels - Jessica Simpson (Robbie Williams)

Nobody has ever been able to sing this song like Robbie Williams - It's meant to be sung only by him

This song should NEVER be touched by anyone other than Robbie!

25 Working Class Hero - Green Day (John Lennon)

Dude, this was an awesome cover, I don't know who things this is such a bad cover, but they gotta be insane. How on earth is this a bad cover? Is it the voice?

I never heard the original, but it sounds like Green Day's song. Instead of this, vote for Avril Lavigne's cover of Chop Suey!

Pretty Good Cover, But The John Lennon Original Makes The Cover Seem Terrible - BeatlesFan1964

Honestly... this was genius. - ProPanda

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

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

28 I Still Believe - Mariah Carey (Brenda K. Starr)
29 A Hard Day's Night - Big Time Rush (The Beatles)
30 Our Lips Are Sealed - Hilary and Haylie Duff (The Go-Go's)
31 Highway to Hell - Marilyn Manson (AC/DC)
32 Opiate - Limp Bizkit (Tool)

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

Why would they ruin the best tool song of all time! ? I hate limp biskit.

33 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

34 Fuel - Avril Lavigne (Metallica)

this really sucks. But why Working Class Hero is up there? I think it's pretty good cover. - GreenDay95

I saw her cover this on the metallica tribute thing. Horrible. Avril sucks!

This is a bad cover - RoseCandyMusic

35 Cancer - Twenty One Pilots (My Chemical Romance)

There's missing Gerard's unique voice. sorry

36 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.

37 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.

Worst Nightmare Ever

38 Take Another Little Piece of My Heart - Faith Hill (Janis Joplin)
39 Mr. Tambourine Man - William Shatner (Bob Dylan)

William Shatner more covers way worse than this

Shatner doesn't even sing in his alblums. All he does is talk at you in that overdramatic voice while corny music is playing in the background.

40 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

Anybody who covers a Michael Jackson song should know instantly its gonna suck. Fall out boy are no different, the only artist who can sing a MJ song and it will never suck is MJ - Lostillusions86
