Just what we needed: The Idols cover "Don't Stop Believing"

Just when you thought one more TV show couldn't exploit the amazingness that is Journey's "Don't Stop Believing," the contestants from season 8 of American Idol decided to cover, and therefore ruin, it for their upcoming tour.What's crazy is that they're acting like it's some brilliant idea they came up with... And don't even get me started on that Megan Joy, who insists on slaughtering everything musical she comes in contact with... That was rude.

But really, we all know that "Don't Stop Believing" made its official comeback to pop culture-dom on that season 2 episode of Laguna Beach when Stephen and Lauren jammed to it in the truck. Following this, it instantly made its way to the top of the iTunes chart and into every college kid's party playlist.Of course, my favorite cover of "Don't Stop" has to be the latest version featured on FOX's new show, Glee.But then you can't forget the cute little PS22 kids either:In conclusion, I love this song and acknowledge its greatness, but I think we need to come up with a new go-to cover song.

To make it easy, let's try this: Journey's "Any Way You Want It."
