So, we have a Better than the original thread, now how about remakes that were an insult to the original?
Top of my list would have to be 'Drift Away' by Uncle Kracker.
Letting Dobie Grey join him on vocals and having him pop up in the video was not sufficient recompense for what he did to that song. (although admittedly Grey didn't do the original it's still his song in my eyes)
I also despise Sheryl Crow's version of The First Cut is the Deepest.
Limp Bizkit - Behind Blue Eyes.
Sixpence None The Richer- There She Goes.
No Doubt - It's My Life.
Killing Me Softly - The Fugees. (Ditch the chit chat and it's a decent enough remake, imo)
Emotion - Destiny's Child.
Madonna - America Pie.
Avril Lavigne - Knocking On Heaven's Door.
