I'll assume yes, but has Chris Cornell's Billie Jean been mentioned?

I may have already posted this some years ago, but for some reason I was reminded of This Inspiral Carpets remix/cover of Paranoid today:

I bought this in 1994 when I was 13 and I thought it was GREAT.

Three Chinese middle school kids cover "Tornadoes" by Drive-By Truckers.

I don't know if this is terrible or genius - it just…is.

Daniel Johns of Silverchair channels his inner Tori Amos. Very badly.

Whenever I see this thread I think that I need to post this song but for some reason, I can never make myself even find it. It's so fucking bad it hurts. There's a studio version as well but it doesn't have the sweet dance moves.

I don't know about worst but I know what one is most consistently over-rated, and it involves Johnny Cash and Nine Inch Nails.

That emotion you are experiencing, it is sentimental pity for a dying man. Take that out of the equation and what you're left with just sounds like granddad in a karaoke bar, trying to do a song he's never heard before.

Bullshit - the dying man at the time was me.

Oh boy. Just sheer comedy right there. I bet the engineer had to leave the room during the vocal tracking. I would've lost it.

People also need to stop covering "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Waiting Room". There are 4,000 shitty covers of each. No need for another one.

So I go to a goodwill in the recently looking for cds for a bargain price. I find the fucking dorkiest looking album ever called alternative NRG. A greenpeace album complete with the stupid monologues in the inside jacket and a the mandatory U2 and REM appearance. I look on the back and find to my surprise some pretty legite bands on there Sonic Youth, jesus and Mary chain, L7 and there are EMF those one hit wonder guys and there doing a cover of search and destroy. So pay 50 cents, I go home, pop it in my cd player, turn to search and destroy and experience this

You know what search and destroy really needs the most annoying synth ever and Iggy Pops vocal delivery needs to be replaced by a guy who sounds like he cant decide if he wants to rap or sing but either way knows he is too tired to do either

Today I learned Korn and Slipknot are still attracting big crowds in 2015. And they still want crowds to "make some fucking noise".

Holy moly. Now that IS bad. All the arguments against doing a cover, or doing a cover of a really popular song, or doing a loud song quietly, are conveniently encapsulated in this performance.

The piano gets used horribly, doesn't it? Between this and the Sound of Silence cover intro, it's enough to initiate rounding up all pianos and smashing them. When some dick thinks "I want class, I want gravitas, I want sincerity", the dick's subconscious/bandmates/producer says "piano, mate! That's what you want."

I love pianos, but clearly so do the legion of dicks.
