* 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.

* ''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.
