Default Is this the worst cover ever

I was exposed to this on the way home in a taxi and this horror was on the radio. This for me has to be one of the very worst covers ever ever made. How has it had 65 million hits on youtube? How? Who? Ouch my ears...

The original was nothing special, so hard to make an objective assessment......

Is this going to turn into a 'Terrible Cover Versions' thread?

Moot point about the cover because just the exsistence of such a manufactured boy band is an afront to the senses!

That is simple, Glee. Anything they do is awful, the Abu Dhabi song back in 09/10 was Journey, Dont stop believing - Glee ruined it.

The theme tune to The Flintstones with Fred singing the chorus with his famous catchphrase?

The original was crap so I doubt that the cover version can be any good either.

Such an average song. Only sounds good if it's being screamed or delivered with loads of aggression.

Sung by five manufactured pop bellends? No.

what was the point of shoehorning a bit of Teenage Kicks into it?

Not content with ruining one song....
