** 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 only stepped in when Bowie himself declined to appear on the album)[[/note]] appeared on the album just to make up the difference.

* In TheNineties, there was something of an unofficial series of albums where a punk band would cover a Music/TheRamones}} album in full. Screeching Weasel's 1992 cover of ''Music/{{Ramones}}'' seemed to kick off the trend, and was notable for emulating the original album's production by consistently placing the guitar in the left speaker and bass in the right. Later came The Victims' ''Leave Home'', The Queers' ''Rocket To Russia'', The Mr. T Experience's ''Road To Ruin'', Parasites' ''It's Alive!'' [[note]] which has the additional gimmick of using the mangled, {{Mondegreen}}-filled lyrics printed in the Japanese edition of the album rather than the real ones[[/note]], Boris The Sprinkler's ''End Of The Century'' [[note]]Vocalist Rev. Norb adds one of his trademark {{Motormouth}} monologues to the start of "Do You Remember Rock N' Roll Radio", in which he introduces the record as "a recreation of one of the worst Ramones albums known to man"[[/note]], and Beatnik Termites' ''Pleasant Dreams''.

* The Crust Brothers' only release, ''Marquee Mark'', is a live set consisting almost entirely of covers (notably the first six songs are all either by Music/BobDylan or else are songs by Music/TheBand that first appeared on Dylan and The Band's ''Basement Tapes''). The rendition of Silkworm's "Never Met A Man I Didn't Like" may or may not qualify as a cover because The Crust Brothers ''were'' Silkworm collaborating with {{Pavement}}'s Stephen Malkmus.

* ''Star Power!'', ''20 Explosive Dynamic Super Smash Hit Explosions!'', and ''20 More Explosive Fantastic Rockin' Mega Smash Hit Explosions!'' are a trilogy of albums released by Pravda Records in the 90's, which featured indie and punk artists covering 70's AM radio hits: The verbose and/or [[ExcitedShowTitle excited album titles]] were coupled with deliberately garish, eye-searing cover art as a parody of K-tel compilations of the time. Many of the artists who contributed are fairly obscure today, but ''20 Explosive Dynamic Super Smash Hit Explosions!'' features the Music/SmashingPumpkins covering "Jackie Blue" by southern rock band The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, while ''20 More Explosive Fantastic Rockin' Mega Smash Hit Explosions!'' has Music/KingMissile's considerably snarkier version of "Still The One" by Orleans.
