antiGUY gives his top 5 list of music stuff. Could be songs, people, a stupid trend... nothing is sacred to antiGUY


This Months Top 5
I am not a big fan of cover tunes. Very few artist can pull it off convincingly and more often than not they end up butchering the original song. There have been exceptions, Faith No More's remake of "Easy" was cool, as well as the Spinners cover of the Four Seasons classic "Working my way back to you."  This time around we look at my list of the worst remakes in the history of rock. I am sure you all can come up with a different list, so I encourage you to post yours below. I know some of you won't agree with my picks. What can I say its a matter of taste. I simply can't listen to cheap imitations of the originals. 

Top 5 worst song remakes.

5. Tina Turner's remake of "Missing you". I wasn't a big fan of the original song but this remake was unlistenable. Tina is usually great, but she must have been having a bad day when she recorded this.

4. NOFX's remake of Vincent. It was a nice try but like our number one song, Don Mclean is not someone you should cover. It's close to heresy.

3. Limp Bizkit's remake of "Faith". The original was pretty lame, the Limp Bizkit version brings lame to a whole new level.

2.  Mariah Carey's remake of "Open Arms". I'm sure we could fill an entire list with this women's butchering of songs, but this one was her worst attempt to date. 

And the number one worst song remake.

Madonna's remake of "American Pie" you just can't take a classic like that and make it a disco song. It is the worst!
