1) Video spoof
Hedley has done a spoof of Rio in their video for "Never Too Late". I don't mind the spoof, it's kind of funny, but the band and the song suck, so overall I hate it.
2) Song remake
"Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls just dropped her new single, and it's a synth-ful cover of Duran Duran's "Rio" that will make you appreciate the vocal stylings of Simon Le Bon more than you ever thought possible." --E! Online
This remake makes me want to hurl. And then shampoo my hair. I hadn't even read past the part that said "remake" and I had already pegged it as an ad for a hair or body care product.
Step away from the Duran, people. Step away.
