Awful Cover Songs

Awful Cover Songs: Bringing on the Heartache by Mariah Carey

It’s not news that I’m not the biggest Def Leppard fan. Even still, I love, love, love their first two albums! I heard “High and Dry” for the first time on headbangers ball when I was in middle school and three decades layer I still listen to that album and pyromania a few times a week. Then….their stuff feels more…

Awful Cover Songs: Live and Let Die by Guns N Roses

Oh dear, sweet, dysfunctional Axel Rose. Normally I really love you. You came into my life at a time when I was weary of the glam metal bands who wore more lipstick than my sister and the thrash metal bands were keeping me awake at night. In fact, that’s probably Guns N Roses biggest contribution to music, 80s hair bands,…

Awful Cover Songs: American Woman by Lenny Kravitz

Now I’m a huge fan of The Guess Who. I would even say I’m a fan of . Lenny deserves his due as a brilliant musician not to mention being a philanthropist. I admit, I feel a little bad for including Lenny in the awful cover song category, but let’s call it.

If it looks like a duck…..…

Awful Cover Songs: Cats in the Cradle by Ugly Kid Joe

I’m gonna step outside my normal personality and give an unbiased review…no, I can’t do it. Most music lovers can’t. Forget unbiased, I can’t even be gentle! I had a distaste for ugly kid Joe when they released their first single “Everything About You” and this awful remake did nothing to win me over either.

When should you expect a…

Awful Cover Songs: Faith by Limpbizkit

Oooohhhh! OUCH!! I think my ears are bleeding! I realize is not the greatest vocalist but is this the best you can do?

And can I just ask…what makes a band like limpbizkit think they can pull off a George Michael song. You’re no pop star Fred. Better luck next time as long as you don’t try this…

Awful Cover Songs: Sweet Dreams by Marylin Manson

I know there are no actual accounts of people visiting the Gates of Hell and returning to life to tell their story. But thanks to Dante’s Inferno and Piers Anthony’s Incarnations of Immortality, most of us have some image of what a journey through Hell might be like.

I rather enjoy the theatricality of Marilyn Manson. Still, I have no…

Awful Cover Songs: Da Doo Run Run by Shawn Cassidy

Often dubbed as the “Justin Bieber” of the 70s what teenage girl didn’t have a crush on Shawn Cassidy? This girl didn’t and that’s the truth! Sure he had a decent singing voice but not enough talent to sustain anything long term.

Adorable? From the eyes of a 12 year old girl, maybe. Personally I would chalk him up to…
