311 doing The Cure's Lovesong is pretty terrible.

I went to see New York Minute with my litter sister and one of the Olsen twins was a drummer and her band did a sweet version of Suffragette City by David Bowie.

Yet another horrid Jessica Simpson cover: she sang that nauseating Robbie Williams ballad about loving angels. Crap. The song sucked to begin with and only got worse.

I've only heard of it... Barbra Streisand covering Bowie's "Is there Life on Mars?"

There is a cover album of Gram Parsons songs from a couple of years ago and most are so bad I can't even remember...

Didn't Leonard Nimoy cover "McArthur Park"?

I wonder if that new move about Parsons has some better covers.

Favorite Cover: Bay City Rollers covering Dusty Springfields "I only wanna be with you"

New York Dolls "Stranded in the Jungle"

Hilariously bad, but awesome too is Type O Negative's cover of some Sarah Macgloclan (spelling?) song. Really funny. They have some interesting covers too though, see "Summer Breeze."

I second 311 as being terrible.

Most punk covers of anything. Punk can be good, but when bands just "punk up" a song by speeding up the drumming and adding "whoooaa" to it, it's bad.

OH the WORST! Limp Bizkit's cover of "Opiate" by Tool. That makes my skin crawl. Fred Durst is awful!

One of the best cover albums I've heard to
date is Emm Gryner's 'Girl Versions'. Covers
of old rock and punk songs rendered on piano ..
from Fugazi's 'Waiting Room' to Ozzy's 'Crazy Train'
to Blur's 'Song 2' (I kid you not, but it works).
Easily rivals Tori's Strange Little Girls ...

I can't say I've ever actually heard Jessica Simpson's work, but if I had, I'd probably be agreeing with ya'll.

The worst has to be Mae West's cover of 'Twist and Shout'. She must have been pushing 70 at the time and sounds like a dying cow. Shockingly bad.

There should be no debate about this topic.

The winner of the worst cover ever is Winger doing Purple Haze.
