All Time Worst Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 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

42 Take Another Little Piece of My Heart - Faith Hill (Janis Joplin)
43 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.

44 Cats in the Cradle - Ugly Kid Joe (Harry Chapin) V 1 Comment
45 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.

46 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

47 All You Need Is Love - One Direction (The Beatles)
48 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.

49 Dancing on My Own - Calum Scott (Robyn)
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 Heartbeat - Don Johnson (Wendy Waldman)
52 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!

53 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

54 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.

This cover is awesome - Th3Zm0nst3r

56 Walk This Way - Macy Gray (Aerosmith)
57 Cancer - Twenty One Pilots (My Chemical Romance)

I liked this cover. - The01Bro

There's missing Gerard's unique voice. sorry

58 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Cradle of Filth (Iron Maiden)

They ruined one of the greatest songs of all time - christangrant

59 Fast Car - Jonas Blue (Tracy Chapman)
60 Under Pressure - Smash Mouth (Queen/David Bowie)
