What are your top 5 worst cover versions of songs?

my personal choices are, in no particular order: boyzone- when the going gets tough, mariah carey and westlife-against all odds, will young-light my fire, N.trance-staylin' alive, 911-more than a woman, steps- tragedy, atomic kitten- the tide is high, girls aloud- jump, geri halliwell-its raining men,... show more my personal choices are, in no particular order: boyzone- when the going gets tough, mariah carey and westlife-against all odds, will young-light my fire, N.trance-staylin' alive, 911-more than a woman, steps- tragedy, atomic kitten- the tide is high, girls aloud- jump, geri halliwell-its raining men, mad'house- any madonna track they ruined in its entirety

in addition what do you think of cover versions in general? should singers be allowed to sing renditions of other people's songs? which songs do you suggest should never be covered by a band or singer, EVER? love to read your views on this

Update 2: oh and i would add also 'love is all around by' wet, wet, wet. i absolutely hate that song in its entirety. it drives me insane every time i hear it
