Has anyone mentioned Winger's tumor inducing cover of Purple Haze yet?

If not, that gets my vote.

The soundtrack CD for Tony Hawk's Underground 2 is pretty bad, but I think that may be because of my love for 80's hardcore punk and my hate for modern-day, popular emo/pop-punk bands.

The Dropkick Murphys, one of the only bands on the CD I actually like, do a cover of the Adolescents "Who is who," but it sounds completely out of place. You have a band who's singer is in his 30's or early 40's singing a song written by a teenager about not fitting in with his peers or the expectations of his elders. Just sounds weird.

The Scissor Sisters has performed "Comfortably Numb" (Pink Floyd) -JUST LEAVE PF ALONE PLEASE!!!

I am so with you on this. When I went to see Depeche Mode in concert a while back, the Scissor Sisters opened for them and they performed their disco version of this song. I mean...wow. I was completely dumbfounded.

I LOVE Pink Floyd, I consider them to be my second favorite band (behind Steely Dan TeddyR), and I am MORE than happy when there is a band that considers the Floyd to be influential to their music, but I am SO sick of the Pink Floyd covers. I was watching a Nightwish concert DVD and even they perform a cover of "High Hopes!" Enough already!

However ...
Supertramp's song "Breakfast In America" (1979)  I have the LP of the same name.
Take a look at my girlfriend/ She's the only one I got /Not much of a girlfriend /Never seem to get a lot...
CHEEZEE, since you know that lyric (or have access to it) so then you know that Breakfast In America is a great album?!  My own favorite is the first one, "Gone Hollywood." 

I actually like Cake's cover of "I Will Survive". But I like most of the stuff by Cake I've heard anyway.
I like CAKE, too...

JEFFERSON AIRPLANE did a superior cover of "Wooden Ships" by CROSBY, STILLS & NASH, on their album Volunteers (which is the one to own if there were only one AIRPLANE album to own) however, DAVID BOWIE did a dreadful version of "Across The Universe" on his Young Americans set.

Yep. Winner. That thing made my ears bleed. The singer was only slightly less harmonious than a truckload of accordions colliding with a wall at 100 MPH.

Susan, you have no soul.  Listening to that filth made me lose every admiring musical bone in my body.  I need it back again.  Where's my Big Daddy Kane album?

Avril Lavigne- "Imagine".  It's on the new 2 disc compilation album for Darfur.  She's the last person I'd imagine to cover a John Lennon song.

That's the worst I can think of now, but I know there's others.

Megadeth's version of Alice Cooper's "No More Mister Nice Guy"
W.A.S.P.'s version of "Mississippi Queen", "The Real Me", "Paint it Black"
Krokus' version of "Ballroom Blitz"
and the biggest travesty of all:
Shinedown's version of "Simple Man".  Those guys should all be dragged out individually and given a daisy face.

As much as it pains me to say this, I really hate this version of:

'97 Bonnie And Clyde by Tori Amos.

Now that I've bagged and flamed my favourite artist EVER, I'll go have a little cry in the corner  Bluesad

I don't like Eminem anyway, but I fully thought Tori would do her usual acoustic piano magic thing with the song and it would end up having a wonderfully haunting melody like Smells Like Teen Spirit.  Alas, I was wrong.

I may be wrong, but I don't think anyone has mentioned "These Boots Are Made For Walking" the Jessica Simpson version.

That is, unless you have all become pod people and think that it's a "Good" song and doesn't deserve to be on that list...

NON pod person right here.  I think Jessica has an okay voice.  But she just RUINED this song!  I was looking forward to it being really good, but it was just insulting.  All the breathy squeakiness in her voice - bugger off!

Plus Willie Nelson salivating over her in the film clip - wigga please!

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)





I loathe Van Morrison on general principle.  His voice is just awful and non musical.  The only good song he ever did was "Bright Side Of The Road" and I only like that because when it came out all those years ago, I was quite young and didn't know any better!

And feel free to flame me (I can take it) but I actually like Scissor Sisters version of Comfortably Numb.  I'm not a huge fan of PF, but I do like some of their songs, in particular Comfortably Numb.  It's my fave PF song.  But both versions, for me, are good.

I won't flame you, but being raised on Pink Floyd from the Syd Barrett days forward, there are in my most humble opinion some artist you just don't cover, and Pink Floyd on the list.

They have many good song, check the albums "Wish You Were Here" and "Animals" also the post Roger Waters album "Momentary Lapse of Reason" and many others, but that's a good start.

I know that PF fans are fiercely loyal, more than for any other band I've ever seen.  A lot of my friends over the years have been rabid fans so I understand the devotion.  I actually have the CD Momentary Lapse of Reason.  I think it is a masterpiece.  I bought it after being dragged to their Sydney concert by my flatmate.  It was a brilliant show, I think I still have the program somewhere.

Also, I agree with the notion that some artists you just can't cover because their brilliance is undeniable.  I'm like that with Tori Amos.   So I understand where you're coming from with the PF thing.
