All Time Worst Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Heaven Is a Place on Earth - Ashley Tisdale (Belinda Carlisle)

Terrible. Having said that, I once dreamed that it was 1989 and Freddie Mercury was doing a bad cover version on a white soundstage, and he had blood all over his face, and it was billed as just "Heaven" on the bootleg that followed...

This not even close to the original version. The first time I heard was a mangled and techy piece of vomit. I love belinda carlisle's version better.

42 Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds - The Flaming Lips, Miley Cyrus, and Moby (The Beatles)

I Love The Flaming Lips but did they have to do this? Just Saying.

43 Abbey Road - One Direction (The Beatles)

One Direction covered the WHOLE album? They must have ruined that masterpiece too. BECAUSE they are one direction. And bad at life.

There's no song called Abbey Road. Unless 1D covered the whole album? - PetSounds

One Direction have failed the human race

Cynical and vile

44 Cats in the Cradle - Ugly Kid Joe (Harry Chapin) V 1 Comment
45 Dancing in the Street - Mick Jagger and David Bowie (Martha and the Vandellas)

I haven't heard it, but how can anything with Mick Jagger and David Bowie be bad? - PetSounds

The music video was worse than the cover itself.

Are you joking? That cover was perfect!

46 Can't Take My Eyes Off of You - Lauryn Hill (Frankie Valli)
47 Walk This Way - Macy Gray (Aerosmith)
48 Sympathy for the Devil - Guns N' Roses (The Rolling Stones)

This is just not what Guns N' Roses should perform; they make their other songs look bad

Doesn't suit them at all. Axl sang terribly here. The music is not all that bad and to quote slash, it was the sound of the band breaking up. Amd I am a Guns N' Roses fan.

My Favorite Song Ever Was Done By Guns N' Roses When They Were Past Their Prime - BeatlesFan1964

49 Heartbeat - Don Johnson (Wendy Waldman)
50 Closer - Asking Alexandria (Nine Inch Nails)

This was an awesome cover.

The original beats this by 1000% - wrests

They just had to ruin a good song.

51 Under Pressure - Smash Mouth (Queen/David Bowie)
52 Faith - Limp Bizkit (George Michael)

Is there really anything worse than this? First of all, what the hell did Fred Durst do to the chorus? Not only that, but he changed the words of the song just to brag about himself. I didn't even care for the original that much, but this is a disgrace.

53 Basket Case - Avril Lavigne (Green Day)

She ruined one of the best Green Day's songs ever made. Gosh, she's not punk, she's pop. I don't get why do people call her the "princess of punk". - gothictomboy66

I cryed when I heard her sing this song it was greendays best works and she goes and ruins it for all

54 Land of Confusion - Disturbed (Genesis)

I find both great in my opinion

Just thinking about Disturbed gives me the jitters O_o - Interrogator

Why is this cover on the list? It's awesome

55 Ramble On - Train (Led Zeppelin)

Train and Led Zeppelin should never be uttered in the same sentence ever... Ever how dare take one of the Greatest songs ever and butcher it like that they all should be in jail

This wasn't so bad. Sure, they bring shame to Zeppelin, but it wasn't too bad,

56 Smokin' in the Boys Room - Motley Crue (Brownsville Station)

This ain't bad, I never heard the original version till Motley Crue did it. I like Motley Crue
