Miley Cyrus’ Nirvana Cover Voted Worst Cover Song Ever [VIDEO]
Miley Cyrus’ version of Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit has been named the worst cover ever in a new magazine poll.
In an odd and probably unnecessary poll, Rolling Stone readers voted Miley’s rendition of the grunge anthem one of the worst (if not the worst) thing they’ve ever heard. It even managed to come off worse than Madonna’s terrible cover of “American Pie” and Limp Bizkit’s cover of The Who’s “Behind Blue Eyes” – and those were really, really bad.
It’s kind of a bummer for Miley, Hannah, whatever we’re calling her these days, who recently introduced “Smells Like Teen Spirit” to her live set, telling her screaming hoard of tween fans, “I want to play a song by one of the artists that inspired me. Without them [Nirvana] I wouldn’t be here. They are the ones who gave me the strength and courage to do this.”
I wouldn’t be surprised if the remaining members of Nirvana were considering legal action for her claiming that her career is somehow their fault.
Limp Bizkit came in second and Madonna third, while “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Sheryl Crow and Britney Spears’ rendition of the Rolling Stones’ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” finished off the top five.
But let’s face it. You didn’t come here to find out what songs made it into that particular top five. You only clicked the link to see that Miley’s terrible rendition all over again.
