In {{Music}}, artists and groups are influenced by earlier ones. As a result, most of these artists and groups would perform and play several {{Cover Version}}s of their favourite songs. In many cases, said artists and groups record them. Said versions can be [[WeirdAlEffect more famous]] then the original recording or even [[CoveredUp surpass]] it, in quality. These Cover Versions can also be entirely different to the original, whether it be in style, [[TheCoverChangesTheGender gender]] or [[TheCoverChangesTheMeaning meaning]].

A Cover Album is what happens when you compile several of these Cover Versions together and exclusively in one album.

There are basically two kinds of this:
* The '''Tribute Album''': In this kind of album, some artist(s) or group(s) [=is/are=] tributed by many other ones by doing Cover Versions of the original songs the tributed one(s) had composed. Very seldom, some original songs may be introduced, generally by showing what the bands do or a song specially composed for the album. These ''Tribute Albums'' may be done in order to [[MilestoneCelebration celebrate some milestone]] (''X Years of...'') or simply for the pleasure of tributing the artist(s) or group(s).
* The '''Single-Artist Tribute''': This is where just one artist or group does all the covering job. Artists may do this for a variety of reasons. It might be that they want to have a product out there but don't have any new material at the moment, or they could be trying to pump some life into a stalled career by recording a bunch of familiar songs whose popularity has already been established. It can be an honest desire to pay tribute to songs and artists they enjoy, or it could just be for fun.

'''As a note for the tropers: We're talking about recordings, whether these are live recordings or studio ones, and said recordings should consist ''only'' of covers. There may be exceptions with one or two (no more) original songs.'''

!!Tribute Albums:
* The Music/HeavyMetal genre is very fond of this:
** Music/IronMaiden has many of these.
** Music/{{Helloween}} has essentially four: ''The Keepers of Jericho vol. I & II'', ''The Eastern Tribute To Helloween'' and the upcoming ''[[{{Portmanteau}} HelloRay]]'', shared with Music/GammaRay.
** Music/JudasPriest has also some of these: both volumes of ''Legends Of Metal'', ''Hell Bent For Metal'', ''Hell Bent Forever'' and ''The Metal Forge Vol. 1: A Tribute To Judas Priest'', which covers "British Steel" in its entirety.
** Music/DreamTheater: ''Voices: A Tribute To Dream Theater'', and ''Sin City: The Dreams Go On''.
*** Of note about ''Voices...'' is that the album is actually composed of two [=CDs=]: one with the aforementioned Dream Theater covers, and the other with original songs by the same bands. We care for the first CD anyway.
** Music/{{Metallica}} has many of these as well: ''Metal Militia'', ''Metallic Assault'', ''Kerrang's Tribute To Master Of Puppets'' and so on...
** And, of course, Music/BlackSabbath's ''Nativity In Black vol. 1 & 2'' and ''Evil Lives: A Tribute To Black Sabbath'', among others...
** Music/{{Queensryche}}'s ''Warning Minds of Raging Empires''.
** Music/{{Megadeth}}'s ''Megaded''.
* ''We're A Happy Family: A Tribute to {{Ramones}}''. There are many, ''many'' Ramones tribute albums out there, but this one's notable for featuring lots of well-known artists such as Music/{{Metallica}} ("[=53rd=] & [=3rd=]"), Music/RobZombie ("Blitzkrieg Bop"), Music/RedHotChiliPeppers ("Havana Affair") and TomWaits ("Return of Jackie and Judy").
** Let's just say... you may never hear "The KKK Took My Baby Away" the same way again after you hear '''Music/MarilynManson''' singing it.
** And your ideas about Music/{{U2}} may be upended when you hear their version of "Beat On the Brat".
* ''Stay Awake'', which consists entirely of covers of Creator/{{Disney}} songs by various artists.
* ''Hello Radio'', a tribute to Music/TheyMightBeGiants.
* ''Legacy: A Tribute to Music/FleetwoodMac's Rumours'', where assorted artists (Jewel, ShawnColvin, Music/EltonJohn) cover a song from the ''Rumours'' album.
* ''Kick at the Darkness'', a tribute album to the Canadian singer BruceCockburn. Yielded a CoveredUp [[CoverVersion version]] of his song "Lovers in a Dangerous Time", done by TheBarenakedLadies on that album, and now most people don't know about the original.
* ''I'm Your Fan: The Songs of Music/LeonardCohen'', a 1991 release featuring various alt-rock acts (including Music/ThePixies, Music/{{REM}}, and Music/NickCave) covering Cohen classics.
* ''Concert for George'', a 2002 tribute to GeorgeHarrison, available on CD and DVD.
* ''Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles'': Music/{{Eagles}} songs performed by country artists.
* ''This Bird Has Flown'': An indie rock tribute to Music/TheBeatles' ''Rubber Soul''.
** Similarly, ''Sgt. Pepper Knew My Father'' was a benefit album for a child-abuse charity that had various artists covering all of ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand''. The most well-known contributors included [=WetWetWet=] (whose version of "With A Little Help From My Friends" went to number one), Music/SonicYouth and Music/TheFall.
* ''Shaken and Stirred: The David Arnold James Bond Project'' was a 1997 album of covers of Film/JamesBond theme tunes by contemporary artists. The producer David Arnold went on to compose the music for the Bond films from ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies'' onward.
* ''Dub Side of the Moon'', a reggae cover of PinkFloyd's ''TheDarkSideOfTheMoon''.
** Likewise, parody group Big Daddy did a version of Music/TheBeatles' ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'' as if it was recorded in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGpCqsc2SK8 the 1950s.]]
* ''A Century of Covers'', a tribute to Belle & Sebastian.
* ''[[LongTitle Stereogum Presents... OK X: A Tribute To OK Computer]]'': [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin an indie tribute to]] [[{{Radiohead}} Radiohead's]] MagnumOpus [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ''OK Computer''.]]
* ''[[http://onjoyfulwings.bandcamp.com/album/seven-swans-reimagined Seven Swans Reimagined]]'': SufjanStevens' album ''Seven Swans'' covered by various indie musicians.
* Music/DuranDuran merited no fewer than three tribute albums, all within the span of three years (1997 - 2000): ''The Duran Duran Tribute Album'', featuring late '90s alt-rockers such as Deftones and Less Than Jake; ''UnDone: The Songs of Duran Duran'', featuring Australian musical artists such as Ben Lee (with Kylie Minogue) and Something for Kate; and ''Glue: A Tribute to the Music of Duran Duran'', a fan-driven covers album project that benefited RAINN (the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network).
* Spin Magazine put together ''Nevermind: A Tribute'', an album that featured various artists covering the entirety of Music/{{Nirvana}}'s ''Nevermind'', in honor of that album's tenth anniversary. Possibly most notable for featuring two bands who went from being CoveredUp by Nirvana to doing Nirvana cover songs themselves (The Meat Puppets and The Vaselines).
* ''RAM'' by [[Music/PaulMcCartney Paul and Linda McCartney]] was the subject of three out of the blue tribute albums in recent years: ''[[http://www.aquariumdrunkard.com/ram-on-la/ Ram on L.A.]]'' and ''[[http://www.amoeba.com/blog/2009/09/jamoeblog/tom-scharpling-on-his-paul-mccartney-ram-album-tribute.html TOM]]'' were released within weeks of each other in 2009, and in 2011 a Portland musician released a re-creation of the album called ''[[http://endhits.portlandmercury.com/endhits/archives/2011/03/07/dave-depper-releases-the-ram-project The RAM Project.]]''
* A Music/LedZeppelin tribute album called ''Encomium'' was released in 1995, and features covers done by various alternative and pop groups from TheNineties, including Hootie and the Blowfish, Stone Temple Pilots, Duran Duran, 4 Non Blondes, and the Rollins Band, among others.
* In 1994, a bunch of CountryMusic artists got together to record a Music/LynyrdSkynyrd tribute called ''Skynyrd Frynds''.
* 1995's ''A Testimonial Dinner; the Songs of {{XTC}}''.
* 1996 saw the release of "Schoolhouse Rock Rocks", a tribute album to ''WesternAnimation/SchoolhouseRock''. Highlights include Blind Melon's "Three's a Magic Number" and Better Than Ezra's "Conjunction Junction".
* ''Whore: Various Artists Play Music/{{Wire}}''
* 1991's ''Two Rooms: Celebrating the Songs of EltonJohn and Bernie Taupin''. Notable for KateBush's cover of "Rocket Man" and TheWho's cover of "Saturday Night's All Right (For Fighting)"; Elton John is one of the few recording artists to ever cover The Who, with his version of "Pinball Wizard".
* ''Mojo'' magazine curates one of these with pretty much every issue it releases, mostly focusing on covers of one artist or one specific album. The theme of the CD always ties in with a story in the issue.
* ''For The Masses'', a DepecheMode tribute album released in 1998, mainly featured contemporary AlternativeRock bands (such as Music/{{Deftones}}, Music/TheSmashingPumpkins, Music/VerucaSalt) , with a few ElectronicMusic artists (Meat Beat Manifesto, Apollo Four Forty) contributing too. It's also notable for focusing entirely on Music/DepecheMode songs written by Martin Gore, and for having a cover designed by Martyn Atkins, who frequently worked with Depeche Mode themselves as a graphic designer or video director. Additionally, Music/MarilynManson were going to contribute a version of "Personal Jesus" to this album, but couldn't due to scheduling conflicts - they finally covered the song six years later and used it as a new track for their own GreatestHitsAlbum instead.
* ''Virus 100'', a Music/DeadKennedys tribute album that gets it's 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 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", Nomeansno's a capella version of "Forward to Death", The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy's rap version of "California Uber Alles" (with updated lyrics focusing on then-current California governor Pete Wilson), and Kramer turning "Insight" into an eerie ballad with synthesized orchestration.
* ''Rise Above: 24 Black Flag Songs to Benefit the West Memphis Three'' is in an odd gray area between being a tribute album and a single artist tribute, but for convenience, let's place it here: The album consisted of the current lineup of [[HenryRollins The Rollins Band]] collaborating with different vocalists on covers of BlackFlag songs.
* ''Tom's Album'' is unusual in that it's basically a tribute album to one song: It features twelve versions of "Tom's Diner" by Suzanne Vega - the original vocal and instrumental versions that [[BookEnds book-ended]] Suzanne Vega's album ''Solitude Standing'', plus a selection of remixes, covers, parodies, or other songs that just prominently [[{{sampling}} sample]] it, all curated by Vega herself. The album was primarily inspired by the popularity of DNA's remix of the song, which is included [[note]] DNA also contributed the only non-"Tom's Diner" song to the album, a remix of Suzanne Vega's "Rusted Pipe"[[/note]]. Aside from the concept, the album is notable for featuring a bizarre cover of the song by Bingo Hand Job, a one-off collaboration between Music/{{REM}} and Billy Bragg.
* ''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!'' featured Music/KingMissile's considerably snarkier version of "Still The One" by Orleans.

!!Single Artist Tributes:
* ''Rock 'n' Roll'' by Music/JohnLennon
* ''Garage Inc.'' by Music/{{Metallica}}
* ''"The Spaghetti Incident?"'' by Music/GunsNRoses
* ''Undisputed Attitude'', by Music/{{Slayer}} (but while the band is ThrashMetal, the songs are HardcorePunk covers, and a few original songs in HardcorePunk style)
* ''Feedback'' by Music/{{Rush}}
* ''Songs from the Mirror'' by Music/{{Fish}}
* ''Thank You'' by Music/DuranDuran
* ''Famous Blue Raincoat'' by JenniferWarnes
* ''Hymns of the 49th Parallel'' by k.d.lang
* ''Strange Little Girls'' by Music/ToriAmos is loosely themed as "covers of songs written by men about women".
* ''Other People's Songs'' by {{Erasure}}.
* Any album by PatBoone.
* ''A Singer Must Die'' by StevenPage and the Art of Time Ensemble.
* Music/PeterGabriel's ''Scratch My Back''.
** 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 BrianEno, who co-wrote DavidBowie's "Heroes" but wasn't the main performer of the song)[[/note]] appeared on the album just to make up the difference.
* Music/TheBand's ''Moondog Matinee''.
* Music/JohnnyCash's ''American Recordings''.
* Music/DavidBowie's ''Pin Ups''.
* Music/OzzyOsbourne's ''Under Cover''.
* Music/BobSeger's ''Smokin' O.P.'s''.
* Music/DreamTheater have a fondness for tributing their influences. They've covered and recorded several classic albums on stage, such as ''[[Music/IronMaiden The Number of the Beast]], [[Music/{{Metallica}} Master of Puppets]], [[PinkFloyd The Dark Side of the Moon]]'' and ''[[DeepPurple Made in Japan]]''. Recently, they've launched a special edition of their latest album with a CoverAlbum featuring six different covers. Not to mention both volumes of the official bootleg Uncovered.
* Ditto for the Vitamin String Quartet and all of their countless tributes. Hell, they've even done a tribute to SystemOfADown's ''Mezmerize'' and ''Hypnotize''.
* Music/{{Helloween}}'s ''Metal Jukebox''.
* {{Queensryche}}'s ''Take Cover''.
* Music/AxelRudiPell's ''Diamonds Unlocked''.
* {{Hammerfall}}'s ''Masterpieces''.
* {{Sepultura}}'s ''Revolusongs'' EP.
* ''Nineteeneighties'' by Grant-Lee Phillips covers songs from TheEighties.
* ''The Cover Record'' and ''Jukebox'' by Cat Power. The latter does have two originals, one of which is a rearranged version of "Metal Heart", one of her earlier songs.
* ''Covers'', an EP by Greg Laswell.
* {{Primus}}' ''Rhinoplasty'' has two live recordings of Primus' original songs as "bonus tracks", but since this trope allows at least one or two original songs, it counts.
* ''Renegades'' by RageAgainstTheMachine is all about covers.
* The Music/FlamingLips' ''[[WordSaladTitle The Flaming Lips]] [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters and Stardeath and White Dwarfs with Henry Rollins and Peaches]] [[OverlyLongGag Doing]] [[PinkFloyd The Dark Side of the Moon]]''. Take a wild guess about which album is being covered.
* Susanna Hoffs and Matthew Sweet (aka "Sid and Susie"), ''Under the Covers Vol. 1'' (favorite songs from [[TheSixties the 1960s]]) and ''Vol. 2''. ([[TheSeventies 1970s]]).
* BobDylan's ([[OldShame frequently overlooked]]) [[SelfTitledAlbum self-titled first album]] was composed almost entirely renditions of folk standards, with only two (not particularly inspired) original compositions.
** Also ''[[OutOfCharacterMoment Self Portrait]]'' (most of it), ''[[CanonDiscontinuity Dylan]]'', ''[[DorkAge Down in The Groove]]'' (most of it), ''[[RevisitingTheRoots Good As I Been To You]]'', ''[[RevisitingTheRoots World Gone Wrong]]'' and ''[[ChristmasSongs Christmas In The Heart]]''. Dylan likes cover albums.
* Similarly, Anne Brigg's self-titled LP was 8 tracks of English folk songs with two original songs.
* ''The Russian Album'' by PaulMcCartney (originally a USSR-exclusive release, but went international in 1991)
** ''Run Devil Run'' is an accidental [[SubvertedTrope subversion]]; it was ''intended'' to be a CoverAlbum and is mostly covers, but two of the three original songs on it are perhaps the best-known on the album. (This is what you get when you allow someone else to pick which songs make the album.)
** ''Kisses on the Bottom'' is another album of mostly covers, this time formative pop standards Paul listened to as a youngster and two originals.
* RodStewart's ''Great American Songbook'' series of Tin Pan Alley standards, and all the similar albums by other artists (including Cyndi Lauper, Bette Midler and Art Garfunkel).
** OlderThanTheyThink: RingoStarr did it first with his 1970 album ''Sentimental Journey''.
* ''Under the Influence'' by Alan Jackson.
* ''Timeless'' by Martina McBride.
* ''Starting Over'' by Reba McEntire.
* LeAnnRimes' SelfTitledAlbum.
* PaulAnka's ''Rock Swings''.
* ''Mockingbird'' by Allison Moorer.
* ''Songs We Didn't Write'' by Ghoti Hook.
* ''Greased'' by LessThanJake is the songs from ''{{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.
* Osso's ''Run Rabbit Run'' is an odd borderline case. They covered the entirety of SufjanStevens' album ''Enjoy Your Rabbit'', but Osso themselves had gotten their start backing Sufjan on two of his prior releases (''Illinois'' and ''Song For Christmas, Vol. V'').
* ''Coverkill'' by Music/{{Overkill}}.
* ''Four Year Strong Explains It All'', a cover album consisting entirely of Four Year Strong doing 90s songs.
* Westlife's ''Allow Us To Be Frank'', which is entirely composed of FrankSinatra covers. And yes, the title ''is'' a {{pun}}.
* CamperVanBeethoven covered the entire Music/FleetwoodMac album ''Tusk'' (under the same album title of course).
* Cracker's ''Countrysides'' consists of seven country covers, one BruceSpringsteen cover performed country style, and one original song.
* TheResidents, being big fans of TheCoverChangesTheMeaning and the ConceptAlbum, have quite a few: ''The Third Reich And Roll'' is two sidelong medleys of deranged 60's and 70's pop covers, ''The King And Eye'' consists of Music/{{Elvis|Presley}} covers with some between-song narration about the rise and fall of Elvis himself, ''George And James'' covers George Gershwin and James Brown, and ''Stars And Hank Forever'' covers John Phillip Sousa and Hank Williams. The latter two were originally going to be part of a lengthy series of two-artist cover albums that eventually got scrapped.
* Music/{{Ministry}}'s ''The Cover Up'', which combines three previously released cover songs with covers recorded specifically for the album.
* A Perfect Circle's ''Emotive'', an album of politically-themed covers with a pair of original songs. Interestingly, those two originals are really only ''kind of'' original - "Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythm of the War Drums" is a drastic [[RearrangeTheSong re-arrangement]] of their earlier song "Pet", while "Passive" was originally co-written by members of the band and [[Music/NineInchNails Trent Reznor]] for the defunct SuperGroup Tapeworm.
* Vanilla Fudge's 1967 self-titled debut consists of covers of hit songs from the previous three years, including one of the Supremes' "You Keep Me Hangin' On", all of them with slower tempos, thundering rhythms and dramatic vocals.
* ''Music/TheBeachBoys Party!'' was a quickly-recorded cover album to buy Music/BrianWilson more time to create ''Music/PetSounds''.
** And on the subject of Brian Wilson, the man himself recorded two cover albums consisting of Gershwin and Disney tunes, respectively.
* Michael McDonald recorded two albums of Motown covers.
* ''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 ''KidzBop'' series, currently on album 19, tries to cover songs only using children's voices. They have attracted some attention from MoralGuardians because of the fact that some of their songs have explicit lyrics.
* TheHollies had a few. ''Hollies Sing Dylan'' was an album of BobDylan covers, and ''Buddy Holly'' was an album of Music/BuddyHolly covers. Additionally, the group's first album, ''Stay with the Hollies'', contained 14 tracks, only one of which was an original composition.
* GeorgeMichael's ''Songs from the Last Century'', an album of covers mostly from the 20s to the 50s.
* Toto released ''Through the Looking Glass'', all covers of songs which inspired the band.
* RobbieWilliams recorded ''Swing When You're Winning'', its title a pun on his previous album ''Sing When You're Winning'', following the success of a song for the ''Literature/BridgetJones' Diary'' soundtrack. It featured one original song which fit in with the theme and which Robbie had waiting for a suitable album to release it on, and several duets including ones with NicoleKidman and the late FrankSinatra.
* UB40 released four different cover albums, each titled ''Labour of Love''.
* JoyElectric's ''Favorites at Play''. Ronnie Martin of JE [[WhatCouldHaveBeen initially wanted]] to record an album covering the songs and artists that had influenced him. Then he realized that it would have been a bunch of 80s songs, and [[ItsBeenDone the last thing the world needed was yet another piece of 80s nostalgia]]. So he swung in the opposite direction and covered a bunch of songs that had just been released in the prior five years (2004-2009).
* Music/FooFighters' limited edition ''Medium Rare''.
* ''Live Frogs Set 2'' by Les Claypool's Frog Brigade is an entire-album cover of ''Animals'' by PinkFloyd. ''Live Frogs Set 1'' also consists only of covers, but most of them were originally by some of Les Claypool's other projects.
* On the first album by Fozzy (the [[SelfTitledAlbum self-titled]] one), eight out of ten songs are covers.
* ''The Hit List'' by Music/JoanJett.
* ''The Director's Cut'' by Fantômas, which has them covering movie themes in their own avant garde metal style.
* ''Rise Above'' by Dirty Projectors is a cover of most of BlackFlag's ''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.
* Metalcore band Coalesce have ''There Is Nothing New Under The Sun'', an EP of Music/LedZeppelin covers. A later reissue stretched it to album length by including more covers (of The Get Up Kids, Boysetsfire, Music/BlackSabbath and Undertow), one original, and some alternate takes of the Zeppelin songs.
* 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.
* Music/DefLeppard had the album ''Yeah!'', which covered songs by some of their main influences.
* MichaelBolton released ''Timeless: The Classics'', which was recorded at least in part to spite critics who went after him for doing so many cover songs (one of which had won him a Grammy).
* The self-titled (and [[OneBookAuthor only]]) album by Replicants was entirely covers, mostly split between Music/NewWave (Music/TheCars, Gary Numan, Missing Persons) and seventies album rock (SteelyDan, PinkFloyd, JohnLennon). The band featured members of Music/{{Tool}} and Failure, and the album was perhaps most notable for the fact that they got Maynard James Keenan to sing PaulMcCartney's "Silly Love Songs".
* Music/{{Aerosmith}}'s ''Honkin' on Bobo'', in which they cover old blues songs.
* Claw Hammer's ''Q:Are We Not Men? A:We Are Not Devo'' was, of course, a track for track cover of {{Devo}}'s ''Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!''. It also included covers of BrianEno's "Blank Frank" and PattiSmith's "Pumping (My Heart)", along with a short jokey Music/LedZeppelin medley and an introductory skit explaining their reasoning behind covering the album.
* Petra Haden (who played in alternate band that dog, and did some violin for the Music/FooFighters) did an ''a capella'' version of ''Music/TheWho Sell Out'' - as in, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oc6IqwM0Z_U every single instrument was covered with her voice]]. Her later album ''Petra Goes To The Movies'' mostly takes the same all a capella approach to songs from film scores - this time there were a few covers that included conventional instruments.
* Music/CountingCrows' ''Underwater Sunshine'': While there are a few pretty well-known songs on the album (Music/BobDylan's "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere", Pure Prairie League's "Amie", and The Faces' "Ooh La La", for instance), the overall focus seemed to be on covering artists that they feel [[SugarWiki/NeedsMoreLove deserved more attention]].
* The Music/InsaneClownPosse's ''Smothered, Covered, & Chunked'' is an album that's only found in a certain edition on their ''The Mighty Death Pop!'' album. They do have other artists on some of their covers, such as Lil Wyte, Music/LimpBizkit frontman Fred Durst, and the rest of their Creator/PsychopathicRecords artists, and although they do include some pop songs (such as Music/ChristinaAguilera's "Beautiful", Music/TearsForFears' "Shout", Music/MichaelJackson & [[Music/TheRollingStones Mick Jagger]]'s "State of Shock", and even ''Series/YoGabbaGabba'''s "Hold Still"), it's basically them covering the late 80's/early-to-mid 90's rap artists that ended up influencing them.
* 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 Daniel Johnston get some more recognition, and hasn't released anything else since.
* Dump's ''That Skinny Motherfucker With The High Voice?'' is an album of lo-fi {{Prince}} covers - though technically "A Love Bizarre" was a Sheila E. song with heavy involvement by Prince. By the way, the IntentionallyAwkwardTitle is a ShoutOut to the Prince song "Bob George", which doesn't actually get covered on the album.
* Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey of Supergrass formed a cover band side project called The Hotrats - their lone album ''Turn Ons'' consisted of 12 cover songs.
* Mark Kozelek of Music/RedHousePainters and Music/SunKilMoon has an Music/{{ACDC}} cover album titled ''What's Next To The Moon?'' as well as Sun Kil Moon's Music/ModestMouse cover album ''Tiny Cities''.
* [[Music/PattiSmith Patti Smith]]'s album Twelve is a collection of famous rock songs such as [[Music/JeffersonAirplane White Rabbit]] and [[Music/TheRollingStones Gimme Shelter]].
* {{Laibach}} covered the entirety of [[Music/TheBeatles Let It Be]] in pseudo-fascist industrial style, minus the title track, and with "Maggie Mae" replaced by a German folk song.
* SimpleMinds "Neon Lights" album, and the bonus disc of "Graffiti Soul", "Searching For The Lost Boys."
* MandyMoore recorded "Coverage" in 2003, a collection of covers of '70s and '80s songs. It was one of her first albums that allowed her to break out of the Pop Princess stereotype.
* In TheNineties, there was something of an unofficial series of albums where a punk band would cover a {{Ramones}} album in full. Screeching Weasel's 1992 cover of ''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'', and Beatnik Termites' ''Pleasant Dreams''.
** Ramones themselves have ''Acid Eaters''.
* Holly Cole did an entire album of TomWaits covers called "Temptation".
** ''Anywhere I Lay My Head'' by ScarlettJohansson is also a tribute to Tom Waits.
* ''Chulahoma'' by Music/TheBlackKeys is a tribute to Mississippi bluesman Junior Kimbrough. The final track is an answering machine message left by Kimbrough's widow commending the band.
* Music/{{Ulver}}'s ''Childhood's End'' is made up entirely of covers of mostly very obscure songs from the late-sixties psychedelic era. By far the best known song covered is Music/JeffersonAirplane's "Today".
* Side 1 of Music/ToddRundgren's ''Faithful'' features his near-perfect reproductions of '60s songs from Music/TheBeatles, Music/TheBeachBoys, Music/TheYardbirds, Music/BobDylan, and Music/JimiHendrix.
* Music/{{Melvins}}' ''Everybody Loves Sausages'' is a fairly eclectic one, with material ranging from obscure HardcorePunk songs to Music/{{Venom}}, {{Music/Queen}}, Music/ThrobbingGristle, and the title theme to early Creator/JohnWaters film ''Female Trouble''.
* ''Local H's Awesome Mix Tape Vol. 1''
* The Blue Aeroplanes' 2007 ''Harvester'' album is a single ''label'' tribute. The Aeroplanes were signed to Harvest Records (EMI's imprint for ProgressiveRock and related genres), and the album consisted of their covering songs by various Harvest bands (most notably Music/PinkFloyd and Music/DeepPurple).
* Clan of Xymox's ''Kindred Spirits'' includes covers of Music/DavidBowie, Music/DepecheMode, Music/NineInchNails, SiouxsieAndTheBanshees, Music/TheCure, Music/TheSistersOfMercy, Music/{{Radiohead}}, and Music/JoyDivision[=/=]Music/NewOrder.
* Sonique's ''Don't Give a Damn'' consists of Film/JamesBond theme tune covers.
* The ''Anthems'' EP by Music/{{Anthrax}} focuses entirely on songs from the 70's, which is reasonable for a band with some 20-30 cover songs across their discography. The title comes from "Anthem" by Music/{{Rush}} (one of the songs performed).
* Anastacia's ''It's A Man's World'', a cover album of songs originally performed by male artists or singers (such as Music/KingsOfLeon Music/GunsNRoses, Music/FooFighters, and Music/LedZeppelin}.
* Music/NickCave and the Bad Seeds' ''Kicking Against the Pricks'', a very varied assortment of folk, blues, country, rock and pop numbers.
* [[Music/GreenDay Billy Joe Armstrong]] and Norah Jones' ''Foreverly'' is a song for song cover of The Everly Brothers' ''Songs Our Daddy Taught Us''. ''Songs Our Daddy Taught Us'' itself consisted entirely of cover songs and traditional folk songs, which makes ''Foreverly'' a cover album of a cover album.
* Music/GarthBrooks' ''Blame It All on My Roots'' box set contains four [=CDs=] of covers, each with its own title (''Blue Eyed Soul'', ''Classic Rock'', ''Country Classics'', and ''Melting Pot'').
* Richard Thompson's ''1000 Years of Popular Music'', which goes in chronological order from "Sumer Is Icumen In" to "Oops I Did It Again". Supposedly this was inspired when ''Playboy'' magazine asked him for his list of "greatest songs ever" and accused him of trolling when it included songs over fifty years old.
* John Legend & The Roots' ''Wake Up!'' is based around covers of {{Soul}} songs from the 60's and 70's - more specifically ones that were lesser-known and had lyrics dealing with social and political themes. Though several of the interpretations include new AWildRapperAppears verses, the only fully original song is closing track "Shine".
* Robert Plant and Alison Krauss' ''Raising Sand'', which had the duo working with a backing band and covering songs chosen by RecordProducer T-Bone Burnett. There is one song that could sort of be termed an original: "Please Read the Letter" was co-written by Plant, but it's a new recording of a song that first appeared ten years earlier on the Jimmy Page And Robert Plant album ''Walking Into Clarksdale''.
* ''Happy Together'' by the Music/LeningradCowboys with the Alexandrov Red Army Ensemble.
* ''We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions'' by Music/BruceSpringsteen, a collection of folk songs, most of which were recorded by folksinger Pete Seeger.
