Worst Cover Of All Time? Britney Spears' Version Of I Love Rock 'N Roll
"Britney Spears` version of I Love Rock `n` Roll has been named the worst cover version of all time.
The singer released Joan Jett`s track in 2002 but music fans were unimpressed with Spears` rendition - NME readers have voted it their least favourite cover." Read More
Britney`s lackluster voice is perfectly suited for the dance genre where record producers rule supreme. A little auto-tune and a few engineering tricks and a producer can make the pop diva`s vocals sound fantastic.
Britney is no Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston (the young version), but nobody really cares. The pop tart`s fans come to her concerts for her dance routines, lip-synching skills, and incredible energy, and not to be blown away by her vocal chops.
Britney is an incredible performer, but she`s not a rocker. The poor child should never have tackled a quintessential rock song like "I Love Rock `N Roll."
Britney, we don`t care that you butchered that rock classic, we love you anyway.
