Luke Skywalker had just destroyed a superweapon that the Empire had spent almost 20 years constructing secretly, meaning Emperor Palpatine would be out for blood.

The 25 worst bad cover songs of all time, ranked
Whatever the reason for the failings by these artists, there’s no disputing that the original songs remain beloved, which is why brutally bad updates can be so difficult to swallow. This list of the 25 worst cover songs, like our look at the 25 best cover songs of all time, doesn’t pretend be comprehensive.
