Top 10 Worst Dubstep Remixes

We've all done it. Searched a song on YouTube and had our curiosity piqued by an interesting looking remix, there's no shame in that. However, here's 10 that you'd be better off having never, ever listened to.Take it from me...

During a recent late night trawl through youtube, I stumbled across a trend lurking in the murky corners of the web; dubstep remixes of songs that really don’t need them.  I have to admit I’m not the biggest fan of it anyway, but  in the right hands the songs are enough to get me on the dancefloor.  The following tunes, however, are most certainly not and should we annulled from musical history…

10) Elvis Presley – Devil In Disguise

If the King of rock and roll was still alive to hear this, I imagine he’d have abdicated.

9) The Smiths – Bigmouth Strikes Again

Morrissey and Johnny Marr aren’t scared of sharing controversial opinions, so perhaps it’ll be a blessing in disguise for the creator of this abomination should neither of them ever hear it.

8) Laura Marling – I Speak Because I Can

The last thing the greatest female singer-songwriter of her generation needed to accompany an acoustic masterpiece was a banging donk, sacrilege.

7) Michael Jackson – Billie Jean

We’ve already seen the King of Rock’s grave danced upon, glow sticks in hand, now here’s the King of Pop’s very own case of treason too.

6) Skrillex Ft. The Doors – Breakin’ A Sweat

Skrillex ensures Jim Morrison will be spinning in his grave with this absolute monstrosity. Breaking a sweat he says? I hope someone successfully goes about breaking his decks.

5) Arctic Monkeys – Crying Lightening

The best band in the country graced the Olympic opening ceremony recently, drummer Matt Helders on top form providing more than enough bang for his buck. What he doesn’t need then, is help creating a decent beat, so why didn’t someone let the DJ know before he released this?

4) Muse – Survival

The sad thing about this is, it’s not even an unwilling unofficial remix, it’s their own dubstep-tinged ode to the Olympics.

3) Bob Dylan – It’s Alright Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)

The world went mad when Dylan went electric, so we should expect riots when the fan club get wind of this tragic reworking of a classic.

2) Johnny Cash - Hurt

The only that makes me sadder than listening to a man’s grief for his late wife on record is this remix of it.

1) God Save The Queen – English National Anthem

This dubstep ringtone manages to offend to levels in thirty-one seconds that the other nine songs in the list fail to reach in minutes.
