The worst and funniest cover songs of all time! The funniest blog ever.

Updated on August 25, 2015

This is the Dr. and his medics? No thanks, I can handle this cold!


Covers. Put some over your ears.

Don't get drunk and sing!!!!

Get her some cough drops!

Some songs are so bad, they are actually good!

I will never understand why some "singers" feel it necessary to remake a classic and make it sound horrible. I am glad they do it however, because it is quite entertaining! Sometimes you wonder what they could have been thinking, and then, you are actually glad that you have no idea! By the way, if one is going to remake a song, do not remake The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, or Guns and Roses! You won't measure up.

What almost made it? I'm hooked on a feeling-David Hasselhoff. Oh boy! Right after he finished that hamburger, he recorded this one! Good Heavens Dave! You are a judge on America's got Talent, not a contestant!

10. Baby I love your way/Freebird- Will for Power. Thank God that this joke of a duet was killed by their own creation! This was awful, and I never wanted to hear garbage like this again! This I think, was their first and last.

9.Spirit in the Sky- Dr. and the Medics.These circus clowns were nuts and the video proves it. Norman Greenbaum did a great job on the original! Beavis and Butthead thought this was stupid and so did I. If any one went to see a Dr. like this one...they would decide to stay sick!

8. Take my Breath Away- Jessica Simpson. This was THEE love song of the 80's when Berlin recorded it for the Top Gun soundtrack. Jessica had a big, strong football player in her life, and he couldn't stop her from this atrocity? I like Jessica, and think her voice is nice, but she mauled this. It was only done so she could make a video that showed off her near perfect body. They thought that would make this a hit. It didn't!

7. Mr. Tamborine Man- William Shatner. This is the first song on this list by the one and only Capt. Kirk. The ending is as crazy as I have ever heard! What happened to him?

6. Hello Goodbye. The Jonas Brothers. A note to all singers, do not cover The Beatles ever, but especially not before puberty!!!!!

5. Sweet Child of mine-Bonnie Tyler. My goodness, hasn't anyone ever offered her a cough drop or some Triamenic? Man, she once had "A total eclipse of the Heart", now it's a total eclipse of the voice box! If you are a mediocre singer, then DO NOT try Guns and Roses songs! Axl was a master, not a novice. Please Bonnie, take care of the strep throat and then get in front of the microphone.

4. Rocket Man-William Shatner. He went right off the deep end right before he did this one! "Im a- Rock-it -maaaaaaan". Holy cow is he a nut!

3. Late 911 is a Joke- Duran, Duran. Who's bright idea was it for Duran Duran to do this cover album. This version was a bigger joke than 911!

2. Don't go Breaking my Heart- Macy Gray and O.D.B. This was ridiculous and never should have been even thought of! But I laughed so hard I am glad they did! I think ODB was drunk and you have to listen to this!

And here he is, the master of the remake disaster...

The Capt. of Crazy...

Sir William!


1. Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds-William Shatner. I laughed so hard the first 100 times I heard this! I love it. He was so bad that he was totally entertaining. No, I don't believe that he made a fool out of himself on purpose. He was trying to be good! LOL.

ENJOY, and remember that laughter is the best medicine, for bad music induced headaches!

      I've never heard of Bonnie Tyler before. She made my throat hurt just listening to her.

      Oh my goodness I've never heard of Dr. and the Medics, WOW. I'm speechless. There's just no words.

      Now maybe I'm a nerd but I thought David Hasselhoff sounded pretty good....

      Voted up, interesting, funny.

      A double massacre was the remake of Frampton's "Baby, Love Your Way" and Lynyrd Skynyrds "Free Bird" by a group called Will To Power. I hang my head as I shamefully admit they came from my 80's generation. Just another example of why we need to forget about the 80's. Bad enough they destroyed one great artists creation but to combine the atrocity with two is insufferable. Especially when you consider Lynyrd Skynyrd as an American Music Legend.

      Thank you epig for the comment! I love music whether it is spiritual, serious, or down right stupid! This list was fun to do!

      ....well you gotta love the 'vitamins' that Mega is on - lol lol lol - when she said 'William has shat on more than one great classic song" - lol lol lol lol - best comment I've heard in quite a while!!!!!

      I love 'outsider' music - like the Shaggs if it's done with sincerity and conviction - but like I said before Boris you really know BIG TIME how to put a music hub together - and I love your sense of humor, clever wit and your boundless enthusiasm of the musical genre - whatever it may be - because you do it all so well - and you were always the best Frankenstein monster - not Glenn Strange - or Bela - he was a good Dracula though!

      100% true....both are were teenagers in Montreal, he was a little older....he got "fresh" her words...and the romance ended.....or the man I thought was my father was covering for Shatner....which would make me Captain Kirk's son....the one that did not die in Star Trek
