10 Terrible Covers of Rock + Metal Songs

Subscribe to Loudwire on

Ever hear a cover on the radio that makes you clench your butt cheeks with rage? Check out these 10 Terrible Covers of Rock + Metal Songs!

We’ve already given you lists of 10 Awesome Covers That Sound Nothing Like the Originals and 10 Cover Songs That Are Better Than the Originals, so we’ve pulled a 180 to highlight the bad… the irredeemably bad!

Most of these clips are pop artists covering rock and metal classics, so they had a tough road to walk in the first place. However, there’s no excuse for Celine Dion + Anastacia’s version of AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long.” The cover itself doesn’t work for us, but what really sealed the deal is Celine’s impersonation of Angus Young’s duck walk. Just stop it!

Did you know Limp Bizkit covered a Tool song? Talk about different sides of the spectrum. Limp Bizkit attempted to pull “Opiate” from Tool’s catalogue and play it live in concert, but not even the dope fiends wanted to hear Fred Durst try and sing like Maynard Keenan.

Check out these 10 Terrible Covers of Rock + Metal Songs in the Loud List above!
