    Having recently heard an appalling dance cover (as many dance covers are) of Genesis' "World we live in" by persons unknown (and let's face it - it wasn't a great song to begin with) I thought I'd which is the worst you've heard.

    I think one of the worst cover songs ever was Kid Rock's version of "Feel Like Makin Love". It started off OK. But then when he starting screaming like a freakin' dumb ass, it got sour. First off, Kid rock cannot sing, so that kind of decreased points from the song already. But screaming. No, just horrible.

    The Vines' cover of I'm Sorry Miss Jackson is just horrible. Utterly awful.

    Dodgy Covers

    Spanish radio must have the monopoly on crap covers & "re-mixes". Just heard Collins/Bailey`s "Easy Lover" done by some inept Spaniard with the chorus in English. If that wasn`bad enough it had a techno feel to the whole thing.
    Gotta agree about Metallica & "Whiskey In The Jar" ....appalling. Having said that.......Check out a version of the same song by "More Power To Your Elbow"

    Oh no guys, the worst is for sure the cover of "Light My Fire" made by Will Young...

    I hope Jim Morrison isn't listening this horrible sweet-pop remake, or he'll launch a curse on this poor singer ;)

    Rest in peace Jim, we'll avenge you! :)

    I dunno what you all think...but I think a while ago when the cover of "Can't Fight the Moonlight" was around the main stream, that one deserved at least some credit. What do u all think?

    Peace,

    william hung is a victim of sympathetic marketing strategy.

    yes, the vines' ms jackson is pure earbleeding number.

    Anything by any new boy band (they don't do new numbers do they!!!!) anything by Steps - everything was awful - in fact it's sad that proper songwriting artistes hardly ever get airplay - instead you get the manufactured over produced nancy boy image pap - God that's better !!!!!!!
