A pair of very bad cover songs surfaced over last week, so this week’s 12 Inch Poll tackles the worst rock cover songs.


And by “rock” we mean covers of actual rock songs. If we were talking just bad cover songs in general, the list would never end. So instead I’ve taken Machine Gun Kelly’s godawful cover of “Aerials,” some French TV guy butchering Nirvana, and a half-dozen other bad rock covers.


Scroll the list below, then let me know: which is the worst rock cover song?

  • Machine Gun Kelly "Aerials"

  • Stephen Di Tordo "Come As You Are"

  • Puddle Of Mudd "About A Girl"


  • Limp Bizkit "Faith"

  • Big & Rich "You Shook Me All Night Long"

  • Sheryl Crow "Sweet Child O' Mine"

  • The Mike Flowers Pops "Wonderwall"

  • William Shatner "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds"
