    I tripped over this today and it is both horrible and funny. What are the worst covered songs of songs that are actually good that you know?

    i HATED this song when it was popular. It's a double whammy of "Baby I Love Your Way" & "Free Bird".

    Kanye West "Bohemian Rhapsody" goes without saying. And pretty much anything from the "nu metal" era.

    Sorry I can't post, but Howig loved Madonna's cover of "American Pie" for one of her God awful movies. I'm always reminded of this when he goes on about his great
    musical tastes to Gary.

    There's a good song. Most people like it. Then years later another band or artist tries to sing it and fucks it up royally.

    I dunno I'm tired and all sunned out, and @Quedee is generally mean to me so I just wanted to cause a ruckus....
    I'm going with this, I adore Primus but hate any Wonka remakes

    Why do people even attempt Beatles covers?
