    I hate it when the songwriter pours their heart into a song and some disney kid comes along and thinks "I can relate to that, sort of, so I should totally cover it".

    Examples:
    Every Rose has it's thorn by Poison - The Song is about the writer falling in love with a stripper, dating her, and hearing another man's voice in the background and wondering where he went wrong. I'm not sure many people can directly relate.

    November Rain by Guns n' Roses - This is the only song Axl Rose knows how to play on piano. He spent literally 10+ years working on getting this song right.

    10+ what? Months? Years? And who are these songs covered by?

    I put my vote in for Smells Like Teen Spirit By Nirvana. Black Eyed Peas has no business touching that song.

    Both songs have been covered all over the place, especially by country artists.

    Avril Lavinge did Teen Spirit a while ago. She didn't even know the lyrics.

    Well I guess this kind of counts, Black Eyed Peas used Dick Dale's "Misirlou" in their song "Pump It" and while I guess it technically wasn't a cover, BEP had no right to jack that song to make it into some mainstream hip hop garbage. I have no reason against the song being covered, but don't use it unless you can play it on guitar cuz it's an insane song to listen to.
