 I must have been blessed not to hear something so atrocious as the Jessica Simpson version of it...Now have to listen to William Shatner singing "It was a very good year" to kill such a horrible cover...

Thanks for the clarification Cheezeflixz, I wasn't sure if it was a straight cover or if the co-opted part of the song, I've only heard it a few times. Simply Red/Mick Hucknall used part of "I Can't Go for That" on an annoying song called "Sunrise" a few years ago. Kind of the same effect. Sampling can be clever, but these Puff Daddy (or whatever he's calling himself this week) style cover/retreads with some new lyrics and such are awful. "I know, I have some lyrics, let's just license a hook, riff, or melody instead of putting them to a tune of our own. This way we can't be sued for sounding too much like someone else."

Not a huge Supertramp fan either, but I hear them on the radio so much they have a certain level of familiarity.

In the movie "The Departed" (Really good movie BTW) there is a cover sort of with Van Morrison singing the lead in Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" it's just wrong I tell you ... Very few people sound anything like Roger Waters in his style of singing and Van Morrison is not one of them.

Other covers of questionable sanity ...

Kylie Minogue has performed The Clash's "Should I Stay Or Should I Go"
U2 has performed ABBA's "Dancing Queen"
Limp Bizkit has performed- Behind Blue Eyes, The Who
Sheryl Crow has performed- Sweet Child 'O Mine, GNR
The Scissor Sisters has performed "Comfortably Numb" (Pink Floyd) -JUST LEAVE PF ALONE PLEASE!!!
Satisfaction - Britney Spears covering Rolling stones - how dare she!?!
Sittin' on the Dock - Michael Bolton covering Otis Redding - how f-ing dare he!?!
Heroes - Oasis covering David Bowie - sounds like a weak tribute band covering Oasis trying to play Bowie. Abysmal.
What's Goin On? - Bono and Chris Martin covering Marvin Gaye - they just don't have Marvin's pain.
Dixie Chicks with Sheryl Crow covering Bob Dylan's "Mississippi"
Atomic Kitten has performed 'The Tide Is High' by Blondie
Aerosmith - has performed The Shangri-Las Remember (Walking In The Sand)

In my eyes, Van Morrison is king, and can do no wrong. I saw him 2 days ago, and it was one of the best concerts i've ever been to. Truly amazing, ignatz.

Absolutely any song covered by Mrs. Miller.
Her version of Downtown is to die for. Literally.
Here's a link to this and her version of A Hard Day's Night:

That version of "Comfortably Numb" was from a live performance of The Wall by Roger Waters with tons of special guests. I like that version, just because it was a change of pace from hearing the original too much (my own fault - classic rock radio and being a Floyd fan in high school), I thought it fit the film quite nicely. Hard to hate Van Morrison anyway. Do wish Marty would retire using "Gimme Shelter" in films though.

They did this? I knew the Wallflowers did a bland note for note version for the Deanzilla soundtrack. Bowie's voice and Fripp's guitar make the song, why do a cover. Other than Rage Against the Machine doing "No Shelter" that soundtrack has a lot to answer for. Puff Diddilly and Jimmy Page. Ha!

BTW heard the Gym Class Heroes song twice today. Yawn.

Now before folks get emotional over Van Morrison let me say I don't dislike VM, I just have a mental image of what a Pink Floyd song should be and VM is not part of it. VM is fine I like'em.

I vaguely remember seeing Roger Water The Wall concert, now that you mention I do recall that performance. I guess I've seen (David Gilmore) Pink Floyd to many times since break up in concert and I'm still suffering from the anxiety after Roger Waters left the group. I only got to see them 2 times prior to the break up with Gilmore/Water and the rest, awesome.

Now back to your original topic ...

Maybe we should line up all the different versions of Big Yellow Taxi and see which ones might qualify.

That deserves a karma point, for sheer level-headed accuracy.

That sucks, Torgo.  Actually it's on the iTunes store, so I got to listen to a whole 30 seconds of it.

That weenie played with Alice Cooper, apparently.

Wonder what other horrible hair metal covers are out there.

Damn Torgo, I was hoping no one mentioned that one because I was going to post it.  Although its on my I-Pod for novelty purposes.

Wrestler Chris Jericho's band Fozzy had a horrid 80s cover CD. 
Sevendust - Going Back To Cali
Rage Against The Machine - Kick Out The Jams
One of the Zappa kids covered Hit Me Baby One More Time...it was funny though...
Bif Naked - We're Not Going To Take It (I think this was on the Ready To Rumble Soundtrack with the Zappa song above, two crap songs for the price of one...)

I'll pry my brain for much more...

How about the multiple versions of John Waite's "Missing You?" I mean, Waite's version isn't the best 80s song, but it was good enough that nobody else had to "reinterpret" it, either.
