There are people out there that want to say rock is dead. Well it’s not and never will be. In this day and age you just have to search for it since the radio waves are pretty much all crappy pop and wannabe hip hop. Thankfully there are a few bands that are making an impact at radio and making people wake up to the fact that rock music is still alive and well. Bad Wolves are one of those bands and they have really taken the music world by storm. Back in 2017 they released their first song “Learn To Live” and that created a strong buzz about the band. Then in early 2018 they released their cover of The Cranberries classic “Zombie” and from that point they have been on fire.
I have no idea why some bands insist on covering such classic songs, only to ruin them in the end. Not to mention when the band in question covering the song is horrible. With that in mind I present to you all a horrible rendition of The Animal’s classic “House Of The Rising Sun” done by an absolutely horrible band, Five Finger Death Punch.
Instead of finding the best cover songs I thought it would be fun to make a list of the worst ones ever.
