Daft Punk's latest single, "Get Lucky," from the upcoming album Random Access Memories, was heralded as the Song of the Summer weeks before it was even released. The Internet was salivating like a starving puppy awaiting a leak of the track. Fake remixes a-plenty were being shared in droves. When the official radio edit finally started to show up, it was like sweet manna from the heavens above. The slick collaboration between the robots, vocalist Pharrell Williams, and funk legend Nile Rogers on guitar delivered on everything we expected and more.
As the days following the release passed, the song gained a lot of momentum in the clubs and on national Top 40 radio. This, of course, was a cue for all fame-hungry, self indulgent YouTube "musicians" to record their own cover of the track in order to gain a tiny bit of Internet notoriety. There are now literally hundreds upon hundreds of terrible "Get Lucky" covers on YouTube, and we have done the heroic deed of finding the very worst for your viewing and listening displeasure. You can thank us later.
