Worst Cover Ever?
« on: December 12, 2020, 12:17:14 AM »
Bon Jovi covering Fairytale of New York, and being the pussy he is he changed the “cheap lousy faggot” line. This is beyond bad.

It's apparently more sample than cover, but Karl Wolf's version of Africa by Toto is a tough one for me essentially right off the bat.  Can't even get to the first verse.

Not the worst, but:

While I do like some Aerosmith songs, I can't say their cover of Come Together by The Beatles belongs anywhere near that list.

Regarding U2's cover of CCR's Fortunate Son - "It ain't them."

The Pogues have let the world know what they think of Bon Jovi’s cover of Fairytale of New York.

The Pogues (@poguesofficial) Tweeted:
What Rob said

Rob Smith (@robsmithireland) Tweeted:
I have heard Bon Jovi’s cover of Fairytale Of New York.

It’s the worst thing to ever happen music, and I am including both the murder of John Lennon and Brian McFadden’s solo career in there.

This is worse!

Thanks a lot, Jon. Kid’s crying now saying “Christmas is ruined”.

Never had one.  They have a band.

Well, if that verse is true,

On my 3rd listen and I'm not sure if this is shit or genius. Certainly one of the more unexpected Dylan covers.

I quite liked it at the time but Sepultura's take on "Bullet The Blue Sky" really isn't very good.

U2's cover versions of "Paint it Black" and "Fortunate Son" aren't much good either.

The Pet Shop Boys' take on "Where The Streets Have No Name" is both the worst and best cover ever, at the same time.

Never liked Bon Jovi and agree with the sentiment that he's a pussy- if i were to use that word in that way.
