So, since Pandora thought it would be amusing to play Limp Bizkit's cover of Behind Blue Eyes I thought I'd make this topic.

Tell us some bad covers you've heard

Or tell us some good ones (those don't exist [I am joking])

Here's the one that currently makes me want to maim children: Cat Power :: "Space Oddity" (David Bowie cover)

You may have heard it on a commercial of theirs

I have extreme dislike of David Bowie's cover of Across The Universe

You keep saying you got something for me
Something you call love, but I call sex
You've been kissing when you ought-to-be-a-screwing
And now someone else can kiss your ass

These boots are made for walking
And that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots
Are gonna walk all over you

You been lying and there ain't no believing
And you keep sayin,What you on about bitch
You been staying when you ought-to-be-a-leaving
Now whats right is right but you ain't been right yet

These boots are made for walking
And that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots
Are gonna walk all over you

You've keep dressing ways you shouldn't be dressing
And you keep thinking that you'll never get burned, ha!
I just found me a brand new box spring matress
What you know, bitch, you got a lot to learn

These boots are made for walking
That's just what they'll do
And one of these days these boots
Are gonna stomp all over you

Are you ready boots?
Start walking

And you think I'm kidding, don't ya?!

Sometimes covers can be good. Bob Dylan apparently is on record as saying Hendrix outdid him with "all along the watchtower"

Rare case, but somebody had to play devils advocate (also how do I make that opening guitar bit my ringtone)

edit: Wait how are we defining covers. Cause many bands/people have done songs that were from other people and done it well

There's also the fact that the original is pretty much vastly superior to anything anyone else could try to do for it.

Yeah but this is like...some guy with conniptions just spasming out in front of a theremin would outdo it.

..Actually that would be awesome and I think I just revolutionized contemporary music as we know it.

Still kinda convinced we all actually died in 1987 and then everything up to now has been some kind of twisted, "no exit" scenario where we just haven't processed whats happening

Being born in 90, I don't know what to make of this.

Norther - Tornado Of Souls (Megadeth Cover)

this is so bad

the vocals are terrible

the guitars are slower and the tone is abysmal

the solo sounds like puke Frown
