Ya, I've kind of beaten the hell out of Day Tripper on my acoustic... maybe I'm responsible for the worst cover ever (either that or the time I played Van Morrison's Gloria)

Hmm, might have been. I dunno.

Didn't even know the Beatles did a German version of the song.

These days, you can find it on the first volume of Past Masters, along with a German version of "She Loves You."

It's, uh, surreal.

The album comes out on March 11 !!! I have downloaded it (I shouldnt tell you how, it was very sneaky and underhanded). You can probably find some or most of the songs online now though.

Johnny Cash's cover of Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus." I actually enjoy it quite a bit, but still...WEIRD.

U2's cover of 'Happiness is a Warm Gun' manages to make a weird song even weirder.

Does anyone own a copy of the "We Will Follow" U2 tribute album? Half that record could easily make this list.

Who the hell made a cover version of Crowded House's "Don't Dream, It's Over"?

Dolly Parton singing "Stairway to Heaven"

What is even weirder is IT'S NOT HALF BAD! It was on NPR several months ago, it's on her latest album. They asked Jimmy Page and Robert Plant's permission to use the song. At the end of the Dolly Parton version they put a chorus singing. . .Page and Plant said actually they had imagined a chorus there too, but just never put one in They thought it was good.

Sarah Brightman's cover of Queen's "Who Wants To Live Forever"

She did a whole album of popular covers and they were all bad, but that one sticks in my brain the most. They used to play it all the time when I was working at Barnes and Noble...

PopFly mentioned the tribute album...I think Moby's cover of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" was the weirdest...

The 80s band Frankie Goes To Hollywood managed to butcher up Springsteen's BTR.
