This. This Is The Worst Cover Version. Ever.

Posted by on Thu, Feb 24, 2011 at 8:00 AM

Let me give you a hand, Dave. I'm not even much of a Motley Crue fan to begin with. I guess The Dirt is an entertaining read, but I like my metal a little more menacing.

Anyway. I didn't know this existed until I was assaulted by this in the frozen-food section of the Roosevelt QFC yesterday. Even thinking about it gives me douche chills. Fluff power-ballad from an already pussy-ass bantam-metal band during their last gasp of creativity meets American Idol-bred "new country" bullshit. Ugh. Masochists click play below.

Dude, worst cover ever is still the Killers cover of "She Lost Control".

QFC is the king of sinister cover song earworms. I assume it's a royalty thing.

I don't know ... does anyone remember Kik Tracy's "Mrs. Robinson"? Or Seattle's own Sanctuary, who covered "White Rabbit"?

To the other, no, I couldn't bring myself to do it. I just couldn't click to play. There is something about the prospect that is almost exactly genuinely frightening.

On a related note, I once survived a really horrible decision in which I followed two somewhat hot, rather quite drunk women out of a bar and took a ride in a loaner Nissan (while the Ford was being repaired after an accident). We ended up at a weird place in Everett where the police arrived at closing time to kick everyone out, and I managed to not get arrested for taking a piss on the street. Hell, come to think of it, the cops didn't even blink. And even though they were talking to the girls as I shook and zipped, they didn't stop us from getting in the car and driving off to do lines with some wanna-be rapper who once recorded an album in Atlanta.

All things said and done, one thing I do remember clearly was leaning forward in the car at some point and asking, "What the hell is this?" And the response? "It's Carrie Underwood!"

I know they actually sang along as we blazed back south on I-5. Thankfully, I've no memory of the actual tunes.

Carrie Underwood is a scourge upon this Earth.
