Let It Go from Disney’s Frozen is one such song. Beloved by children and infantile adults, but hated by parents who have had to listen to it so many times they themselves could sing it backwards, Let It Go is a phenomenon. One which shows no signs of dissipating anytime soon.

Frozen: Please Let It Go. Now.

I’ll be honest and admit I rather liked Let It Go on first listen. It’s catchy, it’s positive, it’s sung extremely well by Idina Menzel, or, if you’re John Travolta, Adele Dazeem Create A New Alias With The Best Online Name Generators [Weird & Wonderful Web] Your name is boring. Thankfully, you can go online and choose a new alias using one of the countless name generators available on the Internetz. Read More . In essence, it’s a good song. But it’s not good enough to justify the level of adoration lavished upon it.

I personally think it’s time to let Let It Go go. But, to achieve that impossible dream we clearly have to give this over-hyped song a fitting send-off. And what better way to do that than by taking one last, lingering look at the best covers of Let It Go uploaded to YouTube.

Bane Blows

Batman’s erstwhile enemy Bane isn’t the first person I’d picture watching Frozen. However, he has clearly watched the Disney film enough times to then write his own lyrics to the tune of Let It Go. They’re catchy too. And just a little insane.

Weatherman Woes

Being a weatherman in Chicago means winters filled with reporting on freezing temperatures, ice, sleet, and lots and lots of lovely snow. Which is why Dan Ponce has such a strong affiliation with Frozen and its big number.


Chocolate Rain

Tay Zonday is famous for singing Chocolate Rain back when viral video stars were a rarer commodity than they are now. It turns out he’s still going, and this is his version of Let It Go, as sung in his distinctive bass voice.

Med School Parody

This is a straight parody of Let It Go, with the lyrics changed to represent some of the negatives associated with being a medical student. Thankfully, you don’t have to be a med student to understand all of the references.

A Dad Pleads

As mentioned previously, the people I really feel sorry for in this whole scenario are the parents who have had to endure their children watching Frozen on repeat. One dad eventually snapped, thankfully penning this parody 10 Of The Funniest Song Parodies Of All Time On YouTube Song parodies have existed for centuries in one form or another. We won't be travelling that far back through the swirling mists of time, but what follows are 10 of the funniest song parodies you... Read More rather than doing anything more extreme.

Minecraft Parody

Minecraft is another phenomenon that is, like Let It Go, often obsessively loved by children but misunderstood by adults. Which makes this parody the perfect mashup Mad Mashups: 7 YouTube Channels Full Of Fun Remixes [Weird & Wonderful Web] YouTube remixers don't get the credit they deserve. It's time to right that wrong, by doffing our caps to the masters of mash-ups. Read More for making parents realize they’re now officially old and out of touch.


Children’s Choir

If Frozen is targeted mainly at children, then why not let the children sing it instead of stupid adults? This children’s choir do a phenomenal job with it, and the African elements thrown into the mix give it a refreshing new twist.

Christina Bianco

Have you ever wondered what Let It Go would sound like sung by other famous singers? No, me neither, but that didn’t stop Christina Bianco from recording a version of the song with lines sung by the likes of Britney Spears, Celine Dion, and Julie Andrews.

Mitch Grassi

Mitch Grassi is a singer in the a capella group Pentatonix. What’s unusual about Grassi is his extremely high voice, which makes him the perfect choice for singing Let It Go. He nails it too.


Mr. Freeze

The second Batman villain to appear on our list is Mr. Freeze, who had the misfortune of appearing in the worst Batman movie of all time, Batman & Robin. Still, it means we get to see Arnold Schwarzenegger sing a version of Let It Go, so it’s not all bad.

Velvety Violin

Singers aren’t the only ones covering Let It Go, as Jun Sung Ahn proves with his compelling violin cover.

Here's how to best make use of this wonderful app. Read More in languages other than your own. But it turns out something gets lost in translation when song lyrics are involved. Thus, Let It Go ends up becoming a totally different song.

Two Little Girls

The two little girls in this video aren’t blessed with the best voices in the world. Not that you would expect them to at just 4 years old. It’s not about their voices though, but their love for the song and their willingness just to go for it.


Disney Impersonator

Frozen is a Disney film. Even if it didn’t have the Disney name attached to it, the film is unequivocally Disney in both style and form. Which means this cover of Let It Go, as sung by a host of other Disney characters, is so compelling.

Classroom Instruments

And finally, we come full circle, with Idina Menzel covering her own song. To be fair, she does have assistance from American chatshow host Jimmy Kimmel and The Roots, who accompany her on a range of classroom instruments. Trust me, it’s a lot better than it sounds.

    I won't be able to live with myself unless my favorite version of this song is posted here: It's a cover by Betraying the Martyrs, one of my favorite bands. Prepare for serious kick-assery.

    Not a parody, but my wife and I were mesmerized by the one in every language - . Amazing how most of the voices were nearly identical, though a few were just "wtf was that"....

    I truly hated this movie and the music. Its so overrated. Its comparable to a low budget Barbie movie. Idina Menzel sounds worst than anyone auditioning for American Idol.
