Other covers that should probably never have been made

I had previously commented on Melanie doing Rock N Roll Heart (folk) and how it was just weird.

On the way back from Lunacon today I heard the Van Halen cover of Pretty Woman on Sirius Deep Tracks.   I could have done without that.  Wikipedia also says the corresponding music video was the first to be banned from MTV.

On the other hand, I seem to have a thing for respectfully done covers especially in a tribute setting (Pete Seeger 90th, Harry Chapin Tribute Concert, Freddy Mecury Tribute Concert, and the Last Waltz).
