I liked Beat on the Brat and Watchtower, I love DKM's Fortunate Son, and I'm such a little whore for Me First...

I always hated Lenny Kravitz's version of American Woman - although I'm sure Burton Cummings of the Guess Who sure didn't - it made over 3.5 million in royalties!!! True Story.

most Smiths covers are abysmal

the Manics' version of Suede's 'The Drowners', except that it's hilarious enough to be not crap, but it deserves a mention

and just to pre-empt everyone:

'Street Spirit' by the Darkness because Radiohead are Jesus and this is sacrilege, blah blah blah. Yeah, whatever.

here's some more!

- Billy Bragg's painful version of the Clash's 'Garageland'
- Irish boyband Westlife's endless slew of fun karaoke cover songs, from 'Uptown Girl' to 'Mandy'
- Joss Stone versus the White Stripes. She gets points for a nice voice and an interesting take on the song but I don't think it came off very well. Her other stuff is pretty good though.

Fred Durst - Wish You Were Here
Alex Lloyd - Mysterious Ways
Madonna - American Pie
William Shattner - Common People (although his cover is so plain bizarre it almost emerges on the other side of badness, )

I actually like Hillary Duff's version of "Our Lips are Sealed" they made it flow more smooth.

I didn't know she asked them to write a song for her! Whoa...that would've been weird...

I heard this cover when her farewell concert thingy was on TV, too-my mom was watching it 'cause she likes Cher and likes some of her music, and I heard this and was like, "Uh...okay, Cher, respect for you as a person and all that-but please, just stop now...". Even my mom agrees that she probably shouldn't have done that cover .

I'll also agree with the Duff sisters doing "Our Lips Are Sealed" (Hilary actually did "My Generation"? Wha...who...when...WHY?).

Heh, another one that just came to my mind, 'cause Debbie Gibson just came on the 80s channel I'm listening to right now, and that in turn made me think of Tiffany and her cover of the Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There" (except she changed "her" to "him"). Seriously, there should be a rule that all teen pop stars like Tiffany and Britney and *N Sync and Hilary Duff and whatnot should stay away from doing classic bands' songs. It just doesn't work.
