    To become "
    Can't touch this"... by that fool in the baggy pants.

    My Chemical Romance and Pennywise's cover of The Misfits "Astro Zombies"
    Celine Dion and Anastasia's cover of AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long"
    Madonna's cover of "American Pie"
    Hillary Duff's cover of The Who's "My Generation"
    Sheryl Crowe's cover of Guns 'n' Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine"
    Any cover of Black Sabbath's "Paranoid", i.e. Megadeth
    Speaking of which, Megadeth's cover of The Sex Pistol's "Anarchy in the UK".

    this was a epic cover of that song though
    youtube.com/wat…ted

    2 really bad ones

    Madonna - American Pie

    Mick Jagger / David Bowie - Dancin in the Street.

    Mc Hammer only sampled Rick James' Super Freak so that doesn't really count.

    Rick James on seeing two topless ladies :~ "I wish I had more hands......So I could give those diddies four thumbs down!"

    Mcflys cover of Don't stop me now

    Fives cover of We Will Rock You.

    Basically anyone doing a Queen song :x

    Not quite a cover but Elton John runied Candle in the Wind when he changed the words and sung it in '97.
