Worst song covers ever.

Recommended Posts

I'm going to set the bar here - can anyone beat a worst ever cover version of a song by a "proper" band (As in one that has had hit records)

If you can beat Puddle of Mudd's attempt here, then please post one up.

The Reverend And The Makers did anot awful cover of the La's 'Son Of A Gun' 

What made it worse is that the lead singer thinks he's got a voice when it comes to politics and considers himself a proper good socialist. Only for hime and his band to do this monstrosity for the Sun Newspaper / rag of all papers. 

I laughed and got blocked on twitter by the precious so and so.

Without doubt the most embarrassing and  scsriest thing I've ever googled or had in my search engine. 

I'm just about to nip into the park and burn my phone.

The bow leg run a karaoke on Wednesdays and this gets sung about 3 times over. There's one lad who tries singing it in an Irish type accent too. 

This needs to be erased from history too.

One of the roughest pubs in Leeds City centre is the 3 Legs, situated near the bottom of the Headrow. 

It has karaoke going every day from about 1 in the afternoon till they close EVERY DAY. 

Some of the singing I've heard whilst walking past to catch my bus could have been weaponised and used as a means of torture. 

Despite it being rough as a badgers Harris I wouldn't mind owning it pre lockdown because it's a proper drinkers pub and a little goldmine. 

Even though I've never been in and I don't plan to go in after lockdown either, I kind of like the fact that there are still a few old Leeds pubs where some of the more colourful characters can go in an let their hair down. Instead of new bars springing up that are trying to be cool but failing miserably.

To be honest I quite like this one. The original video is better imo.

Been the three legs a few times....it's ok....good banter with locals..

The locals do seem sound. 

It's what they call a Leeds pub. Meaning mostly locals go in from Al the different estates, mostly. 

You've also got The General Elliot and The Regent that are similar, without the karaoke. 

Horse and Trumpet is a very slightly more up market version.

Is that a diplomatic way of saying they are shitholes, where all the customers have no teeth and always think you are looking at them?

Talking of the 3 Legs and terrible cover versions, this attempt at Unchained Melody by former Hi Di Hi star Paul Shane was never actually released (I wonder why) but was part of a musical theatre show he was "performing" in. 

Enjoy!!!

Without doubt one of the greatest abominations in recording history. Like most aural assaults, has the knuckle-chewing tendency of cementing itself in your subconscious for days at a time.

A contender for worst video of all time too. Ronan and Stephen appear up for it but the other three must be thinking, "What the feck am I doing here? This is worse than Gay Byrne!"  You can see it in their Oirish eyes!
