Would this be counted as a cheesy cover? I'm asking because I just love this (and hopefully so will some people of a certain age).

Its Zig & Zag doing a cover of the Beastie Boys song Sabotage, done in the style of Elvis.

I think Zig and Zag get a pass.

I win, end of argument.

X-factor or Stars in their Eyes, either or both, they commit the worst cover crimes known to man.

And that's just the winners of those shows. But I think they fall into the Westlife category of sh!t which means it goes without saying their covers are crap.

Blasphemy! Best Christmas number one in years! I still remember the hairs-on-the-back-of-the-neck moment when I watched Donnie Darko for the first time and this song came on.

Anyways, great cover:

And pretty much any other cover Ben Folds touches.

Bad Cover:
