We have the " best covers " topic ,
I couldn't find the worst covers topic ,
Can we have it ?

Now in my mind  these samples :

Paul McCartney - All Shook Up (Elvis Presley)

The Carpenters - Help ! (The Beatles)

Elvis Presley - Maybellene (Chuck Berry)

...They've forgotten all about God

He's the only reason we exist...

Every time a musician performs a concert and does his stuff, he's doing "covers".  98% of the time, to me the concert version is inferior to the recorded.  I saw McCartney and Wings way back in the day, and while it was exciting and fun to see, not one song he and his band performed was as good as the recorded version.

That's incredible, what year? What did they play?
