    The song that should never be redone doesn't exist. There is no such thing as a blasphemous cover.

    A surprisingly excellent cover:



    Another excellent, albeit unexpected, cover:

    The "manual echo" is a great vocal choice, but it's the guitarist's non-solo at the end that I think I love most -- it's as if after that particularly wan attempt at the earlier solo he's just out.

    Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah should never have been made imho. Not only does he lack the gravity for it, he also opened the floodgates for a **** ton of terrible covers.

    And as a long time VU/Reed fan, I always thought this was terrible, sleepy, entirely devoid of the acerbic streak that the song needs. I know a lot of people disagree - they are wrong.

    :D Yeah, what did he know. I have to say I disagree with Reed on that one . But I'd love to hear why he liked it. I think CJ completely gutted that song and turned it into easy listening.

    His consideration to not out shine his band mates is commendable.

    I never get tired of seeing that video.

    Kid Rock's contribution is really even worse than a cover.

    I thought a cover of Bohemian Rhapsody would've been sacrilege, but the Porkka Playboys proved me dead wrong:

    There was just one Voodoo Child. No one should have ever attempted that.

    These guys get all the terrible Comfortably Numb coverage, but The Sisters of Mercy also took a crap on this classic.



    I think the Leonard Cohen version is amazing. I hate the Rufus Wainwright version.
