Celine Dion is responsible for the world's worst cover version, a poll of music experts has decided.

The Canadian star's rendition of the AC/DC track You Shook Me All Night Long was given the dubious honour in the Total Guitar magazine survey.

No1: Celine Dion - You Shook Me all Night Long (ACDC)

No2: All Saints - Walk This Way (Run DMC & Aerosmith)

No3: Westlife - More Than Words (Extreme)

No4: Will Young - Light My Fire (The Doors)

No5: Mike Flower pops - Wonderwall (Oasis)

How McFly's version of Queen's - Don't Stop Me Now never made it into the top 5 is beyond me?

Maybe got away with it because they done it for charity? Still an atrocious attempt if you ask me?

I'm sure you peeps could add a few more to the list?

What do you think is the worst cover ever?

Yes, but without really telling people it was a cover... A friend of my brothers said he really liked the AllSaints Song, Under the Bridge and he said to him "you mean the Chilli Peppers song?" The guy did not have a clue!


Caffeine did an excellent version of 'You Spin Me Round (Like A Record Baby)'

Same happened to me when The Communards brought out 'Don't leave me this way'.

A girlfriend of mine thought it was great, then I said the original by Thelma Houston was much better!

She was very :confused:

I guess they didn't do too bad a job on it though?

Very surprised to not see my Wife on that list, as she has killed many a cover when she has done karaoke

One cover version that I thought was brilliant was Metallica's version of Thin Lizzy's whisky in the jar.
