Miley Cyrus WORST Cover Of ALL Time

Via Rolling Stone: Miley said before playing her infamous version of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ this year: ‘I want to play a song by one of the artists that inspired me. Without them I wouldn’t be here. They are the ones who gave me the strength and courage to do this. I hope I can be that person for you guys.’

Miley was born over a year after Nevermind came out and it’s hard to imagine just exactly how Nirvana inspired her to audition for Hannah Montana or record any of her songs, but those are her words.

When she had started singing this on tour earlier this year her popularity had dramatically plunged in America, and when the videos started hitting YouTube the comments were just vicious. Fairly or not, it seemed to embody everything that people dislike about her.

    Uhhhh NO.
    Her popularity “plunged” in America because she hasn’t toured here, released new music or a movie since early 2010.

    lmfao! aww por her stans cant accept the fact that she sucks and she ruin the song! i mean she cant even sing her own songs and sound like a dying cat and now she dare to sing a nirvana song? i think she seriously loves being a joke for everybody!

  • gorgeousselena

    miley singing nirvana was so fucking embarrasing, she make a huuuuuge fool! poor talentless wannabe! lol

  • Monster27

    I gotta play bad girl today.. I like Miley and her music,but not this cover. She did her best,but she just came up short on this one.

  • gorgeousselena

    i love how all the time the media and people in geneal make fun about miley! shes such a joke! lol

  • blabla

    it’s not that unlikely. my parents still listen to nirvana and I grew up with that :) she wasn’t that bad, it just didn’t fit.

  • gorgeousselena

    i liked it. most of her fans like it. that’s all that matters. if she’s happy with the songs she sings, then i’m happy (:

    bullshit! even her fans says like oh no miley why you do that, it was soo embarrasing and really awful to see her with those awkwards and weird moves lol she looks totally ridiculous hahahaha she think she can be like a rockstar?!? miley miley miley then she wonder why people cant take her seriously!

    when the videos started hitting YouTube the comments were just vicious.

    Aren’t everyones? -_-

  • WYLMITE?

    Um what is up with these “He/she ruined the song….” shit? Any fan who writes such comments makes herself/himself look like an idiot. If an artist covers another artist’s song he/she is probably making it more popular and kind of appreciating it, right? Why do people need to overreact over song covers? People can sing whatever they want to, if you don’t like it then just don’t listen to it. Anybody can cover any song at any place and at any time.

  • WYLMITE?

    That being said, she could have done better with some other song. This one didn’t suit her voice.

  • Grease

    It’s not the first time someone makes a bad cover. Look at selena’s cover of parachute. She was struggling to breathe!

  • Sunshine n Lolipops

    The negative comments are from existing haters who would hate on anything Miley related, or original Nirvana fans who see her as a Disney poser trying to be grunge / punk / alternative. The fact that Miley doesn’t give a shit is more to the essence of who Nirvana, Dave and Kurt represent.

  • Aryanna

    I’m so damn late. I just found out Nick & Delta Goodrem are dating. Isn’t she a bit older no? She’s beautiful though.

    THIS SUCKS, MILEY DID IT CAUSE SHE LOVES NIRVANA AND SHE WANTED TO PAY HOMAGE. IS PATHETIC INSULT PEOPLE WHO MAKE A TRIBUTE TO A GREAT BAND THAT UNFORTUNATLY WE LOST!

  • ItsallaboutSel

    She’s in “every post” because everyone on this site is obsessed with her.

    The cover was everything I thought it would be: sloppy and just plain awful.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am a fan of Miley’s, but with her vocal style and technique, she cannot touch Kurt Kobain.

    ———–

    I’m her fan and i don’t think that ;)
    And since Miley perfomed with the great Joan Jett and she said miley did it great. I think she’s waaaaaaay too far to be awful.
    Claudia, claudia, claudia miley don’t give a shit about what people say about her so stop with the ‘then she wonder why people cant take her seriously!’. You sound so stupid saying the sames shit all the days of your life.

    I’m not really into rock but i don’t think this one was one of her best covers. But it wasnt her worst either.

    it’s hard to imagine just exactly how Nirvana inspired her to audition for Hannah Montana or record any of her songs, but those are her words.

    People are so basic now. I don’t think she meant it in that way. But bleeeeh. Opinions are opinions.

    Why is Gorgeous Selena so obsessed with Miley? I’m sorry, I still don’t get that. She keeps calling Miley a joke, but doesn’t she realize that even other SELENA fans are laughing at HER! GS is the biggest joke on OU!

    I actually LOVED this cover b/c I know Kurt was a good friend of the Cyrus family & what this song means to her. Miley has always spoke highly of bands/people like Nirvana, Iron Maiden, The Beatles, Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett, Elvis Costello, Pat Benatar, etc. since she was 12 years old. If it is such a crime for people to be inspired by artists before their time, you’d have to call half of Michael Jackson’s, The Beatles, and Elvis Presely’s fans fake. That statement alone invalidated this bs article. The person who wrote this article is clearly ignorant & the only reason OU posted it is because they were low on their Miley hate quota for today.

    This cover isn’t bad at all, in fact, while I’d heard Teen Spirit in passing in my life before, her covering this song actually made me pay more attention to Nirvana as a band & Kurt as an artist. I thank her for that, as her fan, I respect her. That’s all that matters.

  • askashley

    Gorgeous Selena should change her name to Gorgeous Miley that bitch gives Miley mmore attention that she does her own Goddess! But it doesn’t matter, people like her are the reason why Miley is still in the Hollywood Industry. I understand Miley can’t please everybody, but does that bitch understand that no one is forcing her to look at Miley? If you hate her so got damn much, then here’s a wise tip for ya: IGNORE HER ASS. Hating on her is not making her any less famous or successful as she already is

    Haha I totally agree with you. The reason why I feel it’s ok for me to say I don’t like the song is because I’m not a one sided, delusional person.

    I think Miley did a better job than Selena would ever do, but Miley’s version is pretty bad to begin with.

    However, I am a bigger fan of Selena than Miley. I’ve always been a big fan of Selena, and I always will be.

    you can’t judge her performance from a video because video’s mess with the quality and her voice sounds different in some videos.
    i saw her live and i thought her cover was really good.
    its only people that are fans of nirvana but hate miley that don’t like that she covered it. im a fan of both nirvana and miley so i liked it. and she gave nirvana more attention because not everyone knows them or listens to them so some people would have heard miley singing it and then become fans of nirvana.
    and it doesn’t matter when miley was born she can be a fan of whatever artist she wants to be.. just because she was born after they came out doesn’t mean she can’t be influenced by them and listen to there music. that would mean that i can’t listen to michael jackson because he’s before my time this whole article is so stupid.

  • thunder.girl

    It’s really pathetic how people are complaining about Miley singing this song. Just because she’s from the Disney Channel and sings mainly pop music doesn’t mean she shouldn’t like this kind of music. She’s allowed to listen to, and sing, whatever she likes. The fact that she sung this on her tour should be a positive thing for Nirvana fans. She’s paying tribute to one of her favourite bands and I guess a few of the Nirvana fans are just pathetic in thinking she’s destroying their music. If anything, she’s introducing it to some of her fans who perhaps hadn’t heard the song before!! And the comment about the album being released before she was born? All I can say is LOL. I mean, Elvis Presley and Freddie Mercury both died before I was born and I LOVE their music. Pssshh. Okay, rant over :’)

She should stick to singing The Climb and her Britney Spears rip off songs. Don’t touch Nirvana, you poseur.

    People who did not like was the fans of Nirvana and they are too aggressive. “She ruined the song.” She did it because she likes. What is the difference? She’s someone famous and you’re not. You can judge her for anything, in this case by a cover. But well everyone has their way of seeing things and if you hate her just for sing some Nirvana song, you’re pathetic. Fans are fans if they want respect, start for respect others.

    please, she was paying a tribute to an amazing band who inspired her. and even though it wasn’t her best cover, it wasn’t the worst cover of all time. and who cares about the release date of the song? doesn’t everybody in our generation rock out to “don’t stop believing” by journey? I’m pretty sure that came out in 1981 :)
