The Spaghetti Incident, being the worst album ever, contains the worst covers ever. Aside from that, the most disgraceful wretched covers I've heard in my life have been done by actors. To the fiery pits with the whole bunch of 'em and their atrocities:

Robert Downey, Jr. - Joni Mitchell's "River"
Kevin Spacey - John Lennon's "Mind Games"
Juliette Lewis - PJ Harvey's "Hardly Wait"

A notable exception is Robert Sean Leonard's take on Wilco's "The Lonely 1", which is actually very decent.

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Year 2000/ All tomorrow's Parties. Cave does some great covers, but these two are not those.

Actually, now I come to think of it, VU might well be the last great uncoverable band. I can't think of anyone that's done a VU song that did it well.

Not terrifically well known, but the White Stripes did a piss-awful cover of Maps by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Others, probably.

You mean Willie's cover of "Señor (Tales of Yankee Power)"? That one goes very well until the horrendous '60s/'70s melodramatic Latin American protest dirge -um, bestowed upon us by Calexico- kicks in. Much better is his 1992 take on "What Was It You Wanted?".
