10 Iconic Songs Miley Cyrus Should Cover

After hearing the Miley Cyrus cover of Led Zepellin's "Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You" I had many thoughts and questions like: "Is this a Karaoke version?" - "Why is it such a lo-fi file?"  It also became clear that the girl does have rock and roll pipes. Whether you like the sound of her vocal performance, whether she can pull off the emotional gravitas of this kind of blues rock classic is another thing. By far, the most entertaining aspect of her putting this out for the world to hear is to read the multitude of comments pro and con! Some are just priceless:

TheSherlockOhms im a really huge led zeppelin fan. I'm not a miley fan. but i don't think she "butchered" this song. i think she did really well. people need to give props when props are due at 5:04
