All Time Worst Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 4

61 When a Man Loves a Woman - Michael Bolton (Percy Sledge)

This guy manages to oversing so badly that Mariah Carey would be jealous. The fact that his voice sounds like utter crap doesn't help. - Zach808

62 Reach-out - Hilary Duff (Depeche Mode)

The song was great until hilary duff ruined it

This isn't a cover, it's a sample of Personal Jesus.
But I do agree it sucks. - Swellow

63 Wonderwall - One Direction (Oasis)

Those tasteless idiots should not dare to cover any song by Oasis. Oasis deserves respect, not shame from some low-brow commercial pop band.

Why isn't 5sos - teenage dirtbag or pierce the veil - don't fear the reaper on here?

64 True Faith - George Michael (New Order)

Ouch, George with autotune sounds terrible. - naFrovivuS

65 We Are Young - Little Mix (Fun) V 1 Comment
66 Your Song - Ellie Goulding (Elton John)
67 Crank That - I Set My Friends On Fire (Soulja Boy)

It's just the song but with screaming and growling instead.

68 Twist and Shout - Salt-N-Pepa (The Top Notes)
69 Fight the Power - Korn (Public Enemy)

The Korn version's pretty freaky, I agree.

70 Walk - Avenged Sevenfold (Pantera)

I hate the fact that A7X ruined one of my favorite songs - christangrant

71 Sweet Child O' Mine - Sheryl Crow (Guns N' Roses)

Taking slash away from something is of course going to make it worse

72 American Idiot - 5 Seconds of Summer (Green Day)

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.

They just scream and make random noises. Not real punk. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

Punk is not supposed to be screaming random things and singing like a crazed fan. - naFrovivuS

73 Stronger - 30 Seconds to Mars (Kanye West)

Kanye's a talentless freak. It would be difficult to do worse than him at anything. - PositronWildhawk

74 Iris - Sleeping With Sirens (Goo Goo Dolls)

I'm actually surprised this one isn't higher on the list

The voice of SWS's lead vocalist ruined the song.

75 Tuesday's Gone - Metallica (Lynyrd Skynyrd)

I like Metallica and all but this one was bad

76 Sound of Silence - Passenger (Simon and Garfunkel)

He sounds like a five year old, and a winy one at that

Ehh, Didn't like this version. Disturbed did it much better

The Disturbed cover was 1000000000000000000 times better. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

77 Does He Love You - Patti Labelle (Reba McEntire and Linda Davis)
78 Dancing with Myself - Glee Cast (Billy Idol)
79 Stairway to Heaven - Mary J Blige (Led Zeppelin) V 1 Comment
80 Come Together - Michael Jackson (Beatles)

While I think technically anything Limp Bizkit touches turns into utter crap. Seriously Michael!? Did you really think that say "Walrus Cracker" was a good idea?

The only reason I voted was to ask... What public? This song on this list? Mj rocked this song.. Being a Beatles fan I think that Mj did it better than them...

Mj butchered this awesome song. Mj is overrated
