Yeah, they actually did a fair job of interpreting the song through their own style. Of course, if you don't like the style, you probably feel the same way about it as I do about the Pet Shop Boys' "Streets" cover (which makes me cringe). For me, the worst covers are the really straightforward ones that are basically the same song with different vocals and a different guitar lick here or there. The ones that make you wonder why they bothered (this is excusable in live covers, since they're just having fun, but when they take it to the studio, they're just wasting space).

I agree with Madonna's version of American Pie.

U2's Fortunate Son isn't so good, either. lol *sorry*

I'll add my vote for Sixpence None The Richer's cover of Don't Dream It's Over.

Another terrible cover is Fiona Apple's version of Across the Universe. I like Fiona, but that cover is suck-o-rama.

add orama/rama to any word and it becomes a nice word.

All Saints covering "Under the Bridge"

I haven't heard it yet but Britney Spears is supposed be covering "Need You Tonight." The very thought is enough to make me weep. Little teeny-pop girls need to stay away from covering modern rock songs!!!!

Britney Spears covering "I love Rock and Roll"
She even thought Pat Benatar sung that!

Also whoever it was that did the remake of "Time after Time."
