Miley Cyrus has covered Gorillaz' 'On Melancholy Hill' on her latest tour. If you have the stomach, you can watch it below.

It isn't the first time the Hannah Montana actress has put her own stamp on a revered song, with Nirvana, Poison and Fleetwood Mac all previously 'honoured' by the singer.

Reaction from the internet community has been fierce, with bloggers and commentators going for the jugular. Buzzfeed said, "This happened because you let it happen, America," while users of YouTube offered articulate opinions such as "the most worst thing i ever hear (sic)".

Damon Albarn has yet to comment on the cover.
