Well, back at it again with another lame poll/question...

What's the worst GH cover song (before GH3) that's nowhere near as accurate?

I have 2 that always bother me, Killing In The Name & Laid To Rest.

Laid To Rest mainly because they simply couldn't get the signature vocals.

Can't think of the worst but I really actually really liked the cover of "Sweet Child o' Mine". Possibly more so than the original.

 

I can with certainty tell you the worst Rock Band cover is "Tom Sawyer".

I'll agree, that one is pretty poor too.

Beast and the Harlot for sure. Granted it probably isn't the easiest song to cover, but oof.

Oh yeah, it's really not that good. the song is plagued by a bad Guitar, & honestly doesn't sound anything like M. Shadows. I do think it's not the worst, but my ex best friend knew right away that it was terrible & that they tried too hard.

There's not really many good covers, Black Sabbath has some bad covers on there...

I dunno, the "Green Grass and High Tides" cover was really well done.

The Wavegroup cover of "Queen Bitch" is excellent, but the Wavegroup version of "All The Young Dudes" is nothing at all like the original.

I agree with that statement. One song that could of the been the original.

Nirvana "Heart Shaped Box", no offense but the vocals were fucking awful.

I have to agree on Laid to Rest, the fucking vocals are just hilarious to even take seriously. Although I do think Institutionalized was also a terrible cover.

 

In Rock Band terms, I think the best worst one would go to Queen Bitch by David Bowie and the absolute worst cover has to go to Tom Sawyer by Rush

Absolutely agree! No where near Kurt Kobain. Besides the fact the sound was kind of off.

Why did they even think to even try with that one. Like i know that Ozzy, M. Shadows, & even Axl Rose have signature vocals that'll never be matched, but seriously that one should have never been touched.

as far as those rock band covers, I've never liked the Rush Cover, at all. As said before, I think the Black Sabbath covers are the worst as well.

Worst GH cover is Police Truck. LET'S BEAT YOU BLUE 'TIL YOU LOSE YOUR PANTS

 

Worst RB cover to me is The Number of the Beast. Obviously imitating Bruce Dickinson is nigh-impossible but it's basically an acoustic version with how weak the instrumentation is - Run to the Hills at least got the latter part right. Honorable mention goes to Hard to Handle.

 

A lot of people shit on the Moving Pictures covers but I always had a soft spot for how... different the vocals were.

Run to the hills wasnt that bad, compared to Number of the Beast. I really liked the drums on Run to the Hills, cant tell if its harder or easier than the original but Im gonna say they attempted to make them harder.

Yeah, the vocals on Rush covers are different but like, in a Im trying to copy you kind of way, thats why its so critically disliked. If Geddy Lee from Rush cant sing his own song, theres a problem, & I know he can hardly sing his own song live now, but you get the point 😂.
