Why listen to anything from the 70's when there was so much Great R&B from the 60's worth listening to instead? There were a few 70's exceptions; the O-Jays and Spinners, Harold Melvin and the BlueNotes, Stevie Wonder (Superstition phase) and in the late 70's Donna Summer; other than that not much that matched the 60's IMO.

How about the Vanilla Fudge version of You Keep Me Hanging On for true awfulness in the self indulgent mode?

Pink Floyd doing anything might be a close second.

Well I'm thinking of songs as released as a single or back in the day as a 45. There were some musicians who could make their instruments "sing" and released good-great instrumental singles. Shining examples were Booker T. and The MG's/Barkays, BB King, Little Walter, King Curtis and Eddie Harris.

Well to each their own, personally I find that most R&B music causes my ears to bleed profusely, I rate most of it right up there with "Chocolate Rain".

Another terrible song that everyone seemed to cover is "Seasons in the Sun". Nirvana, the Kingston Trio and the Beach Boys all got ambushed by this bad boy.

This might even rival "Chocolate Rain" for worst song ever!

I didn't read through the whole thread but if this hasn't been posted, then the thread just isn't complete:

http://www.collegehumor.com/video/59...lacement-shine

Can't embed it, sorry. The song was so terrible they had to take it down from YouTube. Thankfully this website still has it. This song is firing on all cylinders for awfulness. The singing, the lyrics, the music, the video. I mean. It's a trainwreck.

Also for those that remember the awesomeness of Rebecca Black's "Friday" from last year well, here's a few from the same producer...it got worse. If that was possible:

and then...yeah...wait for it...
YES THE SONG IS CALLED ABCDEFG

Some songs are just so silly you can't help but laugh at how stupid they really are, those two above are perfect examples.

I was gonna say Blue Cheer's cover of Summertime Blues but I think we might already have a winner here.

That first song was terrible, but I'm afraid that ABCDEFG has it topped. Chinese Food was terrible, but ABCDEFG is unlistenable. It reeks of parents with too much money indulging their princess' dream to be a pop idol. The autotune is ludicrous.

Doesn't that Wilson's Wagon van need a sign saying "Free Candy"? And it looks like themes of lesbianism and cannibalism.

At least Michael Jackson understood restraint and limited himself to a mere ABC.

That was the WORST sounding cover of any song I have ever heard. Why , Why , Why, I ask would the destroy a good Metallica song by recording such an awful cover?
