yes, i imagine that song is quite shit.
in fact, placebo also did a cover of 'big mouth strikes again' that sounds like the last stand of a defiant ferret. i hate that guy's voice.
here's another goodie:
william shatner - common people
now i've debated that one, and i still stand by my statement that shatner is a genius.

I love Walking Concert's cover of Mustang Ford from "Run to Be Born"

also The Detroit Cobra's cover of the Strokes' Lat Night from that Rough Trade 25th anniversary comp.

and the Beach Boys cover of Louie Louie

did I mention that whole new cover album by Conbra Verde? Rockin' versions of Pink and New Order and the Undertones.

I think Dinosaur Jr.'s Just Like Heaven is the best cover of that song I've heard (and a lot of people love to do that one)

I love cover songs - I could go on and on....

To play tag, though I think I've already used this (maybe in this very thread... to lazy to look):
Willie Nelson - Rainbow Connection (Kermit the Frog)

And Elvis did "Always On My Mind" before Willie. Don't know who did it first.

I admit I've never heard this, but I have to think that you are being sarcastic or have confused this thread with the "worst cover songs" thread...
