* 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.

* ''Virus 100'', a Music/DeadKennedys tribute album that gets its name from the fact that it was the 100th release for Jello Biafra's label Alternative Tentacles. It mainly featured artists who were signed to Alternative Tentacles themselves, but notable outside contributors included Music/{{Sepultura}}, Music/FaithNoMore, Music/{{L7}}, and Music/NapalmDeath. The album had a good deal of arrangements [[InTheStyleOf that completely changed the genre of the original song]] -- aside from the metal covers, you have Faith No More playing "Let's Lynch The Landlord" as a lounge song, Mojo Nixon's country version of "Winnebago Warrior", Music/{{Nomeansno}}'s a capella version of "Forward to Death", The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy's rap version of "California Über Alles" (with updated lyrics focusing on then-current California governor Pete Wilson), and Kramer turning "Insight" into an eerie ballad with synthesized orchestration.
