All Time Worst Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Fight the Power - Korn (Public Enemy)

The Korn version's pretty freaky, I agree.

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

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

83 Stronger - 30 Seconds to Mars (Kanye West)

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

84 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.

85 Tuesday's Gone - Metallica (Lynyrd Skynyrd)

I like Metallica and all but this one was bad

86 Sound of Silence - Passenger (Simon and Garfunkel)

As much as I don't like the Disturbed cover, at least it's not this. - Zach808

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

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

87 Somebody to Love - Glee (Queen)
88 Does He Love You - Patti Labelle (Reba McEntire and Linda Davis)
89 Drunk in Love - Icejjfish (Beyoncé)
90 Dancing with Myself - Glee Cast (Billy Idol)
91 Stairway to Heaven - Mary J Blige (Led Zeppelin)

I think it's not too bad

Nothing will live up to the original. - naFrovivuS

92 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

Both artists are good.

93 Pictures of Matchstick Men - Camper Van Beethoven (Status Quo)

What? This cover is awesome! - naFrovivuS

94 Gangsta's Paradise - Falling In Reverse (Coolio Ft.L.V.)

I love this song but I think ronnie was on spice a drug at the time just

95 Sing - Glee (My Chemical Romance)

I love My Chemical Romance but everything by glee is terrible

My chemical romance sucked anyway.

96 Dancing In the Moonlight (It's Caught Me In Its Spotlight) - Alt-J (Thin Lizzy)

Horrible cover of a great song. Alt-J took out the soul and the oomph in the original and made it bland and boring.

Alt-J sounds the same on every song they make. This song is further proof of it.

97 It's My Life - No Doubt (Talk Talk)

Actually, this cover was good. - Swellow

98 Never Gonna Give You Up - Ashley Tisdale (Rick Astley)

Whoever produced dis piece of junk should no longer be in the music industry

A fate worse than being Rick Roll'd. It exists. - Zach808


99 Zero the Hero - Cannibal Corpse (Black Sabbath)
100 Heroin - Billy Idol (The Velvet Underground)

The words "I think Heroin could be a techno dance hit" should never be uttered by anyone, let alone someone who actually follows along with it and makes a techno song out of it. - ArchAces

This is real?! Heroin is my favorite song ever, and that sounds horrible! - djpenquin999
