* ''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, {{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.

* ''Greased'' by LessThanJake is the songs from ''Theatre/{{Grease}}'' in their Ska Punk style. ''TV/EP'' does the same with TV {{Theme Tune}}s and commercial jingles - though it's an EP with an under 20 minute runtime, they manage to fit sixteen songs in.

* ''Rise Above'' by Dirty Projectors is a cover of most of Music/BlackFlag's ''Music/{{Damaged}}''. It's pretty far afield from the original versions, in part because band leader Dave Longstreth hadn't heard the actual album in 15 years and purposely didn't revisit the original material.

* K. [=McCarty=]'s ''Dead Dog's Eyeball: Songs of Daniel Johnston''. Another case of a [[OneBookAuthor one album band]] whose only release is a cover album - though she previously fronted a band called Glass Eye, she only did a solo album in the hopes of helping Music/DanielJohnston get some more recognition, and hasn't released anything else since.
