Weirdest cover song ever

What is the weirdest cover or collaboration you've ever heard... maybe it was Guns n' Roses covering "one", or Busta Rhymes covering "Iron man"...

What band had no right to perform a song, where they either ruined it or plain old destroyed it (just cause they needed to fill a set list,) all in a sad attempt to give it up to their idols...

Ok, I first just want to say that I actually REALLY like this cover. But I just think that Nickel Creek covering Spit on a Stranger by Pavement was a super weird cover.

I say again, it's a great cover, and actually most people (I'm probably included) will like their cover of it more than the original. Just a weird song/band cover combo.

I heard a cover of "Another Brick in the Wall" one time and it almost killed me. I blocked out who redid it.
Cher's Still Haven't Found really kills me too.

What about that Smooth Criminal by Alien Ant Farm, I never thought that any rock band would cover a Wacko Jacko song...

Alright this is forewarning; I am usually all for the freedom of threads and I don't even care if you reply to my post. But PLEASE do not go off on a tangent and talk about what a freak Michael Jackson is... we all know

Godhead's cover of Eleanor Rigby
*shudder*

...and U2's cover of Whole Lotta Love. I have nightmares about Bono trying to scream like Robert Plant.

No I was just giving you a rough time... no harm intended. I am well aware of your kiester kicking and have actually joined you in one (I won't mention the bands name... but they suck). Honestly I think that mofo could kick cujo's ass any day.

Oh ya, I was just wondering if you can get AFI's new stuff at a normal record store, or do I have to search a little harder...

I wave the white flag...

Hmmm...

Weirdest cover or collaboration:

Um...well, today while I was in my AP Lit class, I could hear music from the next room-it was a cover of the Beatles' "I Want To Hold Your Hand"-don't know who was doing it, but it was in a different language...and that was kinda odd to hear.

Also kind of interesting hearing Axl Rose and Tom Petty do "Free Fallin'" together.

Worst cover of a song:

Haven't heard Cher's version of ISHFWILF...so I can't say anything about that.

Celine Dion doing AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long" was pretty unsettling, and then there's Britney Spears' cover of the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction"...yeah...

But I'd have to say possibly one of the worst, if not the worst, covers of a song I've ever heard was *N Sync's version of Boston's "More Than A Feeling".

They didn't even try and keep it upbeat. They made it into a damn a cappella version! !

That is seriously just...wrong...on so many levels...

And to make matters worse, my sister likes that version of the song (so now every time I hear Boston's original version I always say to her, "See, this is how the song is supposed to sound").

The worst culprit with covers is Puff Daddy (or P. diddly squat who gives a rats ass)... He has single-handedly ruined some of the best seventies and eighties classics with sampling. How did he get Jimmy Page to collaborate with him? Notorius BIG would have even slapped him for that... give it up for BIGGY!

Are you sure it wasn't the German version that the Beatles recorded?

I would have gone with that Brittney cover of Can't Get No Satisfaction (it quite literally brought tears to my eyes, the kind you get when your dog get mashed to paste by a sixteeen wheeler), excpet I've heard the Cher cover of I Still Haven't found What I'm Looking For. That was like being repeatedly eviscerated with each note. Both are so bad I've actually blocked them out, just like that Rob Zombie version of Blitzkreig Bop.
