We already told you how we really feel about the Black Eyed Peas’ horrific Super Bowl halftime performance, but Fergie‘s rendition of “Sweet Child O’ Mine” really is just unforgivable.
Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash made a welcomed appearance during the ill-fated performance, but Fergie’s vocals just couldn’t pull it together to do Axl Rose justice.
We love being reminded of the classic tune, but unfortunately this is not a cover we’ll be replaying on iTunes again in the near future. Or… ever. This isn’t the first time the Black Eyed Peas have given Guns N’ Roses their best effort either, as they often perform the first verses during live shows.
Wonder what Slash thought of the whole debacle?
Not to say there haven’t been good covers of it in the past. Carrie Underwood and Sheryl Crow to name a few — Crow’s version even earned her a Grammy Award.
In case you missed it, you can watch Fergie and Slash take on Super Bowl XLV below. Or, if you value your hearing — listen to the original version instead.
