Melbourne, June 23 : Celine Dion's version of the AC/DC track 'You Shook Me All Night Long' has been named the 'World's Worst Cover Song' by Total Guitar magazine.

The Canadian singer has never released the song as a single but performed what the magazine called the 'musical offence' at a Las Vegas concert six years ago in a duet with Anastacia, reports News.com.au.

"The number one worst cover song - Celine Dion covering AC/DC - is sacrilege. The best covers are unlikely choices and they do something radical," News.com.au quoted the magazine's editor, Stephen Lawson, as saying.

In second place was a Sugababes and Girls Aloud version of 'Walk This Way', which was a huge hit for Aerosmith and rappers Run DMC.

Westlife's version of Extreme's 'More Than Words' landed the third spot on the list.

Will Young's cover of The Doors' 'Light My Fire' came fourth, while The Mike Flowers Pops' reworking of 'Wonderwall' by Oasis was ranked fifth.

The world's top five worst cover songs are:

1 Celine Dion, You Shook Me All Night Long (AC/DC)

2 Girls Aloud/Sugababes, Walk This Way (Run DMC and Aerosmith)

3 Westlife, More Than Words (Extreme)

4 Will Young, Light My Fire (The Doors)

5 The Mike Flowers Pops, Wonderwall (Oasis)
