All Time Worst Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Cats in the Cradle - Ugly Kid Joe (Harry Chapin) V 1 Comment
42 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

43 South Side - Alvin & the Chipmunks (Thomas Rhett)

One of the most unbearable movie franchises to ever exist teams up with one of the most unbearable country artists. How did it turn out? Surprisingly, the Chipmunks version is only slightly worse than the original. - Zach808

44 Starving - Kidz Bop (Hailee Steinfeld)
45 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

46 Can't Take My Eyes Off of You - Lauryn Hill (Frankie Valli)
47 Walk This Way - Macy Gray (Aerosmith)
48 Heartbeat - Don Johnson (Wendy Waldman)
49 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 cover was fantastic. Completely, and utterly. - WonkeyDude98

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.

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

50 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,

51 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.

52 Under Pressure - Smash Mouth (Queen/David Bowie)
53 Dancing on My Own - Calum Scott (Robyn)
54 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

55 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.

56 Cancer - Twenty One Pilots (My Chemical Romance)

I liked this cover. - The01Bro

There's missing Gerard's unique voice. sorry

57 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.
