All Time Worst Cover Songs

The Contenders: Page 7

121 I Think We're Alone Now - Tiffany (Tommy James)

There's some good Tommy James covers, such as Joan Jett's "Crimson & Clover" and Billy Idol's "Mony Mony". But Tiffany's cover sucks on every level.

122 Landslide - Miley Cyrus (Fleetwood Mac)

Usually I don't care when good bands get their songs covered by awful artists because it won't be known that much, but this is awful. She ruins the vocals of Stevie and Christie to an extent so bad, not even the instrumentation saves it. - Swellow

123 Happiness Is a Warm Gun - U2 (Beatles)

I think U2 is the better band here, but this was just weird.

124 All You Need Is Love - One Direction (The Beatles)
125 Your Song - One Direction (Elton John)
126 Teenage Kicks - One Direction (The Undertones)

Way to ruin this and "One Way or Another" in the same song.

127 Sally's Song - Amy Lee (Catherine O'Hara)

She turned a beautiful haunting song into a crappy emo-ballad.
It just sounds lame just like her voice does live.

128 Heart Shaped Box - Evanescence (Nirvana)
129 Thoughtless - Evanescence (Korn)

The worst cover I ever heard. Why does this object always turn great rock/metal songs into lame emo-wailing?

130 Fever - Beyonce (Little Willie John)
131 L.A. Woman - Billy Idol (The Doors)
132 Desolation Row - My Chemical Romance (Bob Dylan)

This Band Sucks.

133 21st Century Schizoid Man - April Wine (King Crimson)

They got virtually every part of the song wrong.

134 Imagine - Miley Cyrus (John Lennon)
135 Thieves - Limp Bizkit (Ministry)

Even Jonathan Davis hated this cover.

136 Got Money - Jonathan Davis, Jim Root, and Ray Luzier (Lil Wayne)

I hate myself. I accidentally voted for this.
Jonathan davis is WAY BETTER THAN Lil Wayne.
I was looking for Kanye West doing Bohemian Rhapsody.

137 Unfinished Sympathy - The Six (Massive Attack)

There are just some works of perfection you don't touch. - PositronWildhawk

138 Right Now - Chelsea Grin (Korn)
139 Closer - Maroon 5 (Nine Inch Nails)

This cover should at least be in the top 40

140 Stockholm Syndrome - One Direction (Muse)
