    this is too easy - worst cover ever -

    Winger - Purple Haze.
     
  3. I dunno--The Cure's "Foxy Lady" may give that one a run for its money.

    Pearl Jam's cover of Last Kiss (you know that "where oh where can my baby be, the Lord took her away from me...")

    :sick: :gun:

    I cannot stand Eddie Vedder's voice. On anything.

    me too, i never even really know if their songs are good or bad
    i think they are terrible, pearl jam does not hold a candle to Nirvana to me
    but maybe thats just because eddie vedder has one of the most annoying voices ever :o

    That is a fucking awful cover. My only possible reason for not nominating it straight off the bat is that I must have somehow successfully blocked it. Thanks a load!

    My local radio station plays it a lot. I have half a mind to boycott them for it ;) but they're the only station that plays Moz/The Smiths. What... just cuz Eddie Vedder is a Chicagoan...that gives him a free pass? I don't think so!

    Fall Out Boy's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" makes me want to beat the entire band with Peter Hook's bass guitar. What is worse is that this band is from my hometown-Chicago. If I ever see them in town I will exact revenge on what damage this song did on my ear drums. Ian Curtis must be cutting himself somewhere. And the Cure, they did an equally irratating version of this song.

    Now let me defend Eddie Vedder, along with other Chicago music icons as Smashing Pumpkins, Ministry, Naked Raygun, Material Issue, Veruca Salt, Cheap Trick, Buddy Guy, Liz Phair, and Wax Trax Records , I am very proud to say he is from Chicago. Nirvana was Nirvana-no doubt. But Mudhoney was Nirvana before Nirvana but without an incredible frontman-Cobain. Pearl Jam, in their day was one of the best bands in the states and if you ever saw them live-wow. Now, Eddie's voice may not be the voice of rock Gods, but it does have character and soul. Some of my favorite singers don't have great voices-they just have voices that mean something. Rock on Eddie!

    It isn't that bad, just a bit too slow. Then again I don't like Joy Division so I'm not going to be particularly irritated.

    Yes, the Cure did a version of this song as well and it was not good. I am a big fan of Joy Division so I was particularly irratated.

    Paul Young's version of Love Will Tear Us Apart is a lot worse than The Cure's.

    Tears for Fears? Which song did she cover?

    I'm ashamed. Deeply, deeply ashamed to like Tears for Fears. *buries self in hole in the ground*

    That is hilariously awful. :D
