There are the usual ones, like Beat it, a cover of a Michael Jackson classic that was done by Eddie Van Halen on guitar.
It was covered by Fall Out Boy and it was horrible...

Post videos or just call out some terrible covers of classic songs.
They can be so famous like Little Wing or Paint it Black, or something that's not that known.

For example, John Mayer's cover of Panama by Van Halen in this Youtube video.
Lacks any power that van halen had and Mayer ends up dressing like him, using his guitar.
He should stick with the blues, seriously...

Go

Snoop Doggs cover of sad but true on icons was unbearable, most of them infact stank the place up but that was a personal anti-highlight for me.

That cover of you give love a bad name by Atreyu was pretty damn bad

Lost Prophets covering Machine Head was awful

Fightstar covering Breaking the Law was terrible (although I liked their Leper Messiah and My Own Summer covers)

oh and that Bring me the Horizon cover of Eyeless wasnt great either

That Kerrang! album was pretty bad

Though I like You Give Love A Bad Name - Atreyu and I like Fightstars over of Breaking The Law more than the original.

New Found Glory ruined Don't You Forget About Me. They added a bunch of screaming BS.

Quote by Jaymz_515
I don't know what's worse, the cover or the endless screaming.


I couldn't even hear anything but the screaming so I can't really judge the actual cover. I saw a cover of "hey jude" in the related which had promises of epic fail, but once again I was foiled by incessant teenage girl shouting. Like I don't hear enough of that daily.

i don't mind the john mayer version of panama tbh. as far as crap covers go, dancing in the street by bowie and jagger is the worst song known to man.

EDIT: fuck me the guy above posted a bad one!

You Can Play These Songs With Chords is such a great album but yes, they ruined the song.

I'm neither a huge Bon Jovi or Priest fan but both those covers we're just pointless in every way tbh lol.

Fightstars I was actually expecting to be a heavier version of the original but instead they decided to "brutalz" it up on the only bit they really needed to leave in, the riff the whole song is know for appears what once? lol

still, it's all subjective I suppose.

slayer's cover of born to be wild

and Dream Theater and Friend's cover of Cemetary Gates, it actually isn't all that bad until Dave Mustain shows up neer the end and butchers the solo

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CniXIMb0oo


It's wierd, Mustaine always catches a load of crap for this solo (and he does deserve to haha) but tbh the worst thing about it for me is the vocals, they're just continually awful.
