The cover was done as a part of a series by Spotify called Spotify Singles, where singers and bands cover classic songs from previous decades.

And, well, it's been released.

Some people really enjoyed the cover.

But many people immediately refused to listen to it.

They thought it was extremely disrespectful to both the band and the song, which is widely considered a soul and funk classic.

People were MAD.

They really did not like it.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to Swift's representatives for comment.
