CELINE DION's Version Of AC/DC's 'You Shook Me' Is 'Worst Cover' Of All Time

According to the UK's Daily Mail, Celine Dion's cover version of the AC/DC track "You Shook Me All Night Long" has been voted the worst cover song.

Dion, 40, has never released the song as a single but performed the "musical offense" at a Las Vegas concert six years ago.

A SUGABABES and GIRLS ALOUD version of "Walk This Way", which had been a huge hit for AEROSMITH and rappers RUN DMC, came second.

Experts also delivered a verdict on the most successful cover versions.

JIMI HENDRIX's cover of the BOB DYLAN song "All Along the Watchtower" topped the list, with the GUNS N' ROSES' version of the WINGS' song "Live and Let Die" and NIRVANA's cover of "The Man Who Sold the World" by DAVID BOWIE also in the top five.
