* ''Sacred Cows'' by The SwirlingEddies was an album of parodic cover versions (often employing StylisticSuck) of the most popular Christian rock songs of the moment. Thus, DeGarmo and Key's "God Good Devil Bad" was performed as if Terry Scott Taylor was recovering from a blow to the head; Amy Grant's "Baby Baby" was performed like a hotel lobby karaoke performance; dc Talk's "I Luv Rap Music" was performed in lounge lizard style.

* The self-titled (and [[OneBookAuthor only]]) album by Replicants was entirely covers of songs by artists active in the seventies, mostly split between NewWaveMusic (Music/TheCars, Music/GaryNuman, Missing Persons) and album rock (Music/SteelyDan, Music/PinkFloyd, Music/JohnLennon). Their name, aside from being a ShoutOut to Film/BladeRunner, was also a tongue-in-cheek acknowledgement that they were just replicating songs already written and performed by other artists. The group featured ex-members of Music/{{Tool}} and Failure, and the album was perhaps best known for the fact that they got Maynard James Keenan to sing Music/PaulMcCartney's "Silly Love Songs".

** Though it's closer in form to a Tribute Album, ''And I'll Scratch Yours'' is a companion piece: The original concept was to have all of the artists who Gabriel covered on ''Scratch My Back'' record Peter Gabriel covers themselves. In the end, four of the artists covered on ''Scratch My Back'' declined to record anything for ''And I'll Scratch Yours'', and two artists who Peter Gabriel didn't cover at all [[note]] (or three such artists if you count Music/BrianEno: ''Scratch My Back'' included a version of "Heroes" by Music/DavidBowie, and while Eno co-wrote the song and was a collaborator with Bowie throughout [[{{Music/Heroes}} the album of the same name]], he of course wasn't really considered the main performer)[[/note]] appeared on the album just to make up the difference.
