Every Version of Do They Know It's Christmas after the original.
Noel Gallagher did a cover of Slade's 'Merry Christmas Everybody'. Sounds so grim.
Paul Young covered Crowded House's 'Don't Dream It's Over'. Nondescript.
'Wonderwall' by Mike Flowers. Complete joke.

Limp Bizkit - Behind blue eyes. (The Who)
“Out beyond ideas of wrong and right, there is a field.

Urgh! I see what you mean.
Limp Bizkit do some great thrashy music but they don't know how to convey the deep emotional feelings that a song like 'Behind blue eyes' should have.
Yes, I think that was the idea.
