Top 5 Worst Rock/Metal Cover Songs

The worst reinterpretations of someone else's songs I have heard in 25 years of listening to rock and metal (vaguely but not necessarily in order.)
1Frank Turner
On A Plain

Your local street-corner busker who wants to be Ed Sheeran turns a Nirvana song into a folky warble-fest, and somehow it gets released on a tribute album
2Rob Zombie
Blitzkrieg Bop

One of the most legendarily fun-loving groups of all time has their biggest hit turned into a dirgey industrial mess - and all the fun gets sapped out of it in the process.
3Celine Dion / Anastasia
You Shook Me All Night Long

No, Celine, you do not get to Rule 63 this song. And you definitely DO NOT get to do the Angus Duckwalk. Piss off.
4Thirty Seconds to Mars
Bad Romance

And speaking of an originally fun song getting turned into a dirge and having all the fun sapped out of it...here's Jared Leto doing just that to one of GaGa's best club bangers. It gets even worse when compared to Youmeatsix's cover of 'Poker Face', which DID understand what you need to do when covering a dance song in a rock genre.
5Green Day
We Are The Champions

Oh, honey...no.
