Piece of My Heart by Big Brother et al. A bad solo and out of tune to boot.

Lennons attempt at a solo in this - he even tries to blame the amp as not working for his plunking.
Having said that, the others (McCartney especially) do a great job.

Even this guy can't count the number of times Lou Reed mutilated a perfectly good song by ordaining that he and he alone had the necessary skills to perform the required middle eight guitar solo...

The Flaming Lips - "Elephant"

The rest of the song is great, heavy rhythm & groove, but the solo is just the jankiest, most disappointing part of the song; practically an insult to Kevin Parker's oh-so badass solo in the original Tame Impala version.

Have you tried posting that one here:
http://www.zappa.com/messageboard/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=25755&start=25

One that's a bit painful is in the 1996 remaster of Smoke On The Water, it's quite dull especially compared to the fine solo on the version we all know.
