I remember Madonna's "American Pie" being a popular choice the last time we did this type of thread.

Well, since we are talking about Lil Brucie, one of the very worst covers ever in all the history of mankind was Blinded By the Light by Manfred Mann.

Lame and wrong beyond any reason.

Pure, utter blasphemy.

which song?
Sounds scary already.
I'll throw in that entire U2 tribute album....just awful. Butchering at it's worst.
They turned such upbeat and beautiful U2 music into dark and depressing blarney. Pure crap.

Madonna's 'American Pie' is not so good.

I could live without ever hearing anyone cover "Happiness Is a Warm Gun" again.

I heard on the radio that Korn was going to cover "Love on the Rocks" by Neil Diamond. If that's true... Poor Neil.
