horrible covers

most recently threads about covers have been about those that are as good, or better than the originals. why not we enjoy covers that suck?

here are my nominations:

sixpence none the richer - don't dream it's over
paul young - don't dream it's over
paul young - love will tear us apart
placebo - bigmouth strikes again
t.a.t.u. - how soon is now (i do like some of their other stuff though)
orgy - blue monday
third eye blind - i will follow
third eye blind - train in vain
annie lennox - train in vain
avril lavigne - chop suey (ok, maybe not, it was funny)
pearl jam - last kiss (it was good the first two times)

got anymore?

Celine Dion doing any AC/DC song can't be good.

okay, i've got a couple. my least favourite cover from my favourite bands:

duran duran: 911 is a joke (originally done by public enemy)
japan: all tomorrow's parties (originally done by velvet underground)
U2: fortunate son (originally done by creedence clearwater revival)

And Paint It Black (right on Zoney)... it was ok, but I think that most covered songs do not hold true to the original... Either that or they don't expand the boundaries of the song.

I remember doing this thread a few months back. And the crap is truly rising to the top... lot's of bad cover songs . It makes the good ones look better (eg. All Along The Watchtower- jimi... good stuff).
