I only heard it a few times, but there is a terrible pop-techno-bubble gum cover of a Bryan Adams song. I can't remember which song, but it was awful. You know, maybe it was a Journey song...

My memory has really been bad lately!

I can't listen to Bono singing "Hallelujah". It's really bad.

Oh...but here's the DOOZY of all bad covers....I don't think anyone will beat this one...
William Shatner (yes you're reading right...William Shatner)
....doing Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.


Bad is an understatement.
I haven't heard it...but what about his "version" of "Rocket Man"?

That was bad...whoo boy, was it bad...

And really, really weird as well.

Another one I don't care for-Guns & Roses' version of "Live and Let Die". Normally I like their covers of songs (particularly "Sympathy For The Devil"), but that one was just...eh.

I've never heard this "Hallejuah" song you guys are talking about.

Another one to add: Cher's version of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For".

...

It's found on Tower of Song: The Songs of Leonard Cohen.

I actually haven't listened to it since it was first released in 1995! Maybe it isn't as bad as I remember. I should give it another listen for sure.
