Very simple. Name a song you think has the worst cover.

I can't remember anything from the first part, but for the second part, the cover for Jane's Addiction's StopBig Grin

That was a joke. But seriously, Killing in the Name. Now I know it has curse words, but they should have kept it and censored it like they did with that Sum41 song in the first part.

Hmm...hard choice. I'd pick Free Bird, just because of the over-bending in the slow section. But it's so hard to choose. I think they're all worthy of being decent covers.

Wait a minute, hold on, the vocals to Take Me Out were done terribly. It was like they got an American to impersonate a British guy as stereotypically as possible.

Forum drama, eh?

Another one that came into mind: Mother as performed by Danzig.

I liked that song, but the cover- although not good, is somewhat tolerable.

Worst cover, in my opinion, has to be either Killer Queen or Ziggy Stardust... ugh.
Keep clear... fat man dancing! Seventeen stone and grooving with the best of them Smile

I recently heard some songs from the first part and noticed a couple of odd-sounding covers: Killer Queen, Iron Man, Symphony of Destruction, and Bark at the Moon.

In Killer Queen, that part that killed me were the laser effect. It's there, but you could hardly hear it.
My only complaint with Iron Man is that they shortened it (I'm also looking in your direction, War Pigs). Cover's pretty good. I thought that it was actually Ozzy himself.
The cover artist for Symphony of Destruction sounds as if he were whining.
Bark at the Moon needed those echoes of him laughing to stand out - if they're there to begin with.
