First up will be Coldplay's "The Scientist."

I'm going to put a cap on it once I've played enough to burn onto one CD.

This thread is for you. If there is a song that you hate with a deep burning passion, then post it, and if other people agree then I will do my damnedest. Try to upload the songs somewhere or at least link to a tribute Myspace or something.

Last Resort is an awesome choice! That song would be, at the very least, hilarious in acoustic form.

My choice: Holiday- Madonna

I would like to hear 'Welcome Home' by Coheed & Cambria.

I heard the most amazing cover of this song, on cellos.  Completely instrumental.  The band then proceeded to put their cellos through distortion effects, and cover System of a Down's "BYOB", and a couple Slayer and Metallica songs I don't know the name of.  It blew my mind.  Anywho.

Johnny, you should do "Living Dead Girl" by Rob Zombie.  Because that song annoys the shit out of me.  Actually, Rob Zombie just annoys the shit out of me in general.  So, I guess you can choose any Rob Zombie song you like, if you choose to do one.

Johnny, if you can make a nice sounding cover of "Babylon" by Erotic Suicide, you will make me an extremely happy man.

I am aware this is quite the challenge.

The first two are done.

"The Scientist" by Coldplay.
"Last Resort" by Papa Roach.

Get them here.

If you are into the .rss feed thing then I guess you could use this somehow.

Once all of them are done I will do some artwork and come up with a tracklisting.

So this is ten. Or eleven. I might have counted wrong.

I may not do all of these since the point is not ironic covers but rather covers of simply bad songs in an attempt to make them good.

I loved Tubthumping back when it first came out (I was 10.) I still have fond memories of it today..

Seriously, this would probably come up under 'Ironic Covers' but I think doing Hell-O)))-Ween by Sunn O))) would be pretty hilarious in acoustic form.

Odds are that was Apocalyptica...they do cello covers of pretty much everything.

If you're covering bad songs...I dunno if you live in England or whether these guys got over in the US, but how about 'Reach' by S Club 7?

There's worse national anthems then our one.

Also, Catacombs- there was talk on the metal archives board about a drone remake of Freebird, but no one ever did it (the solo would probably go for about an hour.) Perhaps I will make one when I am bored. (don't know if you care or not, but I like the idea so I'm running with it.)

I also second the S Club 7 recommendation.

Oh, and try 'I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor' by Arctic Monkeys. I did a cover of this which alternated between 5/4 and 6/8, and it was fucking awesome though I say so myself. Even played it live a couple times.

I got kind of a Richard Cheese vibe off the Papa Roach cover, but that might just be because... they covered it as well.  I think the song just lends itself to lounge singing.

Nope, it was a band called Break of Reality.  Who are fucking awesome, and pretty cool dudes (and dudettes).

If he decides to cover Marylin Manson, it should be "This is the New Shit."   Seriously.

Johnny C will you marry me? I can move to Regina and buy you lots of instruments to make more musics with (WIN-WIN!)


Edit for a PS: Johnny please do "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey because I ALMOST don't think even you could make that song sound good.
