  • I know you're asking about unintentionally-bad cross-genre cover versions, but I love some of the times where artists have crossed genre for comedy purposes -- like Weird Al's polka medleys of famous rock songs. I think one of the funniest -- and most unexpected -- of these tongue-in-cheek versions was Alanis Morissette's cover of the Black-Eyed Peas' "My Humps," which Alanis took slow and melodic, to hilarious effect.

  • he he he that is funny!! I heard a Muzak version of Metallica's One and Ride the Lightning once.

    I was shocked. It was sooooooo funny.

    How you get it out of your head is easy, Elvis' Blue Christmas will be playing somewhere to torment you to death.( Or Chipmonks christmas)

    You'll beg for the muzak back.
