The worst cover songs ever released.

    In the spirit of the "Worst Band Ever" thread, I want to hear what people think are the worst covers ever and why.


    Whiskey in the Jar. Metallica. They took Thin Lizzy's interpretation of the Irish folk song and took it from a lament full of both despair, and joy and turned into another snarl fest with no insight into what that song is about. Despicable.

    Then there's "Bad Company" by Five Finger Death Punch. As if that sophomoric band name isn't enough, they take a song that was an entertaining homage to the old west outlaws and spaghetti westerns and turned it into a complete joke; an hell dog growl with none of the original appeal remains, just nastiness. That over blown grunt about "we all gotta die" is the limit. Just pitiful.


  2. I dislike Turn the Page more than Whisky in the Jar if you're going to talk Metallica covers.

    Whoever that chick was that covered Sweet Child o Mine is no good either.

    I'm not quite as nostalgic about the 2 originals but those 2 are pretty bad.

    Any techno remix. I have to listen to this crap at the gym all the time when I forget my headphones.
  8. Limp Bizkit - Behind Blue Eyes. There's nothing right about that cover, nothing at all.

    Ahh, thank you for saving me from looking up who did this. All I remembered was that it was some teenybopper who changed the line to "Hope I don't die before I get old.":rollno:

    To be fair, the original song was a huge pile of crap to begin with, so adding some poo to the pile doesn't really have much effect.
