‘So much autotune that this could be literally anyone,’ another said. ‘Never heard someone ruin a song so badly,’ a third wrote.

Peach PRC, whose real name is Shaylee Curnow, hit back the critics on Twitter, writing: ‘The amount of men who are being so mean about my Teenage Dirtbag cover lol.

‘They act like Metallica is gonna walk in their living room and hand them a beer for pointing out autotune. Being a loser takes inches off your hairline. Grow up.’

She also told 9Honey the band Wheatus privately messaged her to say they enjoyed her version and offered some advice.

‘They were like, “I think it’s awesome, it’s really fun.” Like, you know, “F**k what the haters are saying. Like, they hated it when we put it out 20 years ago. So like, don’t stress about it,”‘ she said.

She added: ‘A lot of artists, I’m sure, would love seeing their song reinvented years and years later.’
