But I probably haven't heard it in 15-18 years - and listening to it now?
Painful. Borderline brutal.
Oh, Carly. This must've tortured you.
(My apologies to Faster Pussycat - I swear, I still love House of Pain. And I might still be hot for the guitarist. Shut up.)
This got me thinking... what are the worst cover songs ever done? So I asked a few people, and threw it on Twitter so I could get opinions of the masses.
The winners (or, should I say, les losers?):
Sheryl Crow covering GNR's 'Sweet Child o' Mine'.
Why was this allowed??
Limp Bizkit covering The Who's 'Behind Blue Eyes'.
Sorry, Fred. Nothing gives you the right to cover this song.
And maybe this is slightly blasphemous since it's the album anniversary and all, but...
Dare I say that she chose the most obvious song? Quite the fan she is.
As you can see, I had to put my 'thinking pen' behind my ear in order to whittle down your lists to just a mere few shitty covers. And to be honest, I am a fan of many covers. such as:
Deftones covering Sade's 'No Ordinary Love'
Jeff Buckley and K.D. Lang's versions of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah'
Tom Waits and Cat Powers' versions of Phil Phillips' 'Sea of Love'
And the list goes on...
Agree or disagree, I don't much care.
But what are your favourite covers, and which ones make you wanna shove rusty forks in your ears?
