Welcome to ElectriciansForums.net - The American Electrical Advice Forum

Ok guy we've had favourite songs, bands, guitarists etc etc so how about really horrible cover versions that should never have happened. I'll set the ball rolling
Stevie Nicks - Rock 'n Roll (Live) HD - YouTube
Céline Dion;Anastacia - You Shook Me All Night Long - YouTube

Now it's not enough just for it to be bad because there's loads of those about. It has to make you cringe like the two examples above.
Lets see what we can come up with.

That doesn't make me cringe though mate, it makes me very annoyed though. Some things are just better left alone

On a more serious note I really don't like that cover of 'The Undertones - Teenage Kicks' which is being used on some advert at the moment.

I don't know about number 1 but it did really well. He released it around the same time as the original, to the extent Noel Gallagher's girlfriend (who he said he wrote the song for) accused him of covering Mike Flowers.
 
Seven nation army, ruined by that x factor contestant, why why why? The ying to that yang though is the jimmy webb version of Galveston. Totally amazing (the one off the "letters" album)
