Worst song covers (In my opinion)
3 01. Jonas Brothers
Song: Hello Goodbye
Victims: The Beatles
One of the worst covers I heard in my life and I'm glad it has more dislikes than likes on YouTube.
8 02. Black Eyed Peas
Song: The Time (Dirty Bit) (Samples The Time of my life from Dirty Dancing)
Victims: Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes
I wouldn't call this a cover, but it deserves a spot on the list!!! They have to ruin it with their crappy autotune and a part where they rhyme swagger with Mick Jagger.
6.1 03. Rascal Flatts
Song: Life Is a Highway
Victim: Tom Cochrane
Even when this song was released I hated it. I hate how the Rascal Flatts version gets more attention than the original. Then this is coming from someone who has heard the original before this song came out.
5.1 04. Alien Ant Farm
Song: Smooth Criminal
Victim: Michael Jackson
I used to have a love-hate relationship with this song. Now I just hate it!!! What's really annoying is that guy in the background trying to sound like Michael Jackson.
6 05. Fall Out Boy
Song: Beat It
Victim: Michael Jackson
I admit I used to like Fall Out Boy, but started to hate them when I heard them sing this song.
5.9 06. Avril Lavigne
Song: Chop Suey
Victims: System of a Down
5.9 07. Madonna
Song: American Pie
Victim: Don McLean
Why even try making a cover of that song. It's just a great rock song turned into a garbage pop song.
5.4 08. Smash Mouth
Song: I'm a Believer
Victims: The Monkees
No comment again.
5.7 09. Fergie
Song: Live and let Die
Victims: Paul McCartney or Guns N' Roses or whatever version she was trying to sing.
This was a song she should have left alone.
5.9 010. Glee Cast
Song: Don't Stop Believing (and many other good songs)
Glee is the most overrated show on the planet. I've heard a few of their awful covers and one clip from the show and that was enough for me to know that show is awful.
6 011. Korn
Song: Another Brick in the wall Parts 1, 2 and 3
Victims: Pink Floyd
I saw this on 2 worst cover songs lists while looking for ideas and that song showed up on both of those lists. When I started to listen to it I said "This isn't too bad." Then when they sang Another Brick in the Wall Part 2 it got worse.
6.2 012. Hilary Duff
Song: My Generation
Victims: The Who
Again saw this on two worst cover lists except this was bad from the start.
4.6 013. Miley Cyrus
Song: Smells Like Teen Spirit
This is awful! This song she shouldn't have even bothered to sing live! I can see her career being ruined by the media like Michael Jackson's career.
2.6 014. Justin Bieber
Song: Lose Yourself
Even though I'm not a fan of Eminem or even the original version of that song I mentioned, but this is atrocious!!! He shouldn't rap because it's not his thing, but then neither is singing.
4.4 015. 'N Sync
Song: When You Wish Upon a Star
Victim: Cliff Edwards
They had to ruin this song and what better way to by making it sound like a typical boy band song.
5.1 016. Britney Spears
Suggested by MariaJJ
Song: (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
Victims: The Rolling Stones
Even though Mick Jagger liked this cover version I still don't think that excuses it from being bad.
6.3 017. McFly
Song: Build Me Up Buttercup
Victims: The Foundations
