Here’s my picks for worst covers, either from songs I knew were covered previously, or ones that workmates suggested when I did an informal survey. Presented without comment — your screams of agony speak more than I ever could. I dare you to play every one of these all the way through.
Vanilla Ice – Satisfaction
Michael Bolton – Dock of the Bay
Laibach – Sympathy for the Devil (seriously, WTF IS THIS!?)
William Shatner – Rocket Man
Sheryl Crow – Sweet Child O’ Mine
And the number one worst cover ever, mentioned by the greatest percentage of my workmates and easily exemplar of why the douchiest band ever should not be allowed to cover anything ever again: Limp Bizkit’s Behind Blue Eyes. The only redeeming factor would have been the Speak-n-Spell, but even it is turned into a virtual douchebag by having to spell L-I-M-P over and over.
WHERE ARE YOUR GODS NOW!?
