  • "That's all," he added.

this goes out to all the shitty tribute albums that have come out over the years.  from the largely bland and insufferable Oingo Boingo tribute album to the mostly damn near unlistenable Jawbreaker tribute album (not to mention the Tony Hawk Underground soundtrack), this is a salute to all the bands who have taken their time to butcher songs by artists that they claim to admire.  here's a sampling of what we might be able to expect from the future if this disgraceful tide refuses to let up.

"Tribute" to Fugazi:
01. My Chemical Romance- "Waiting Room"
02. Taking Back Sunday- "Give Me the Cure"
03. Atreyu- "Bad Mouth"
04. Thrice- "Cashout"
05. As I Lay Dying- "Suggestion"
06. Chiodos- "Bulldog Front"
07. Crossfade- "Repeater"
08. Evergreen Terrace- "Epic Problem"
09. Take the Crown- "The Kill"
10. The Fall of Troy- "Styrofoam"
11. A Static Lullaby- "Burning"
12. Greeley Estates- "Margin Walker"
13. Scary Kids Scaring Kids- "Argument"

"Tribute" to Screeching Weasel:
01. Fall Out Boy- "Cool Kids"
02. The Starting Line- "Hey, Suburbia!"
03. Halifax- "My Right"
04. Amber Pacific- "Supermarket Fantasy"
05. Rufio- "Dingbat"
06. New Found Glory- "Veronica Hates Me"
07. Bowling for Soup- "Stupid Over You"
08. Boys Night Out- "The Science of Myth"
09. Hidden in Plain View- "My Brain Hurts"
10. The Matches- "What We Hate"
11. Never Heard of It- "Kamala's Too Nice"
12. Houston Calls- "Totally"
13. Motion City Soundtrack- "Fathead"
14. Bayside- "Cindy's on Methadone"
15. Aiden- "American Suicide"
16. Less Than Jake- "Every Night"
17. Something Corporate- "Guest List"
18. The Casualties- "Slogans"

scary, eh?  and the scariest part?  both of these tribute albums are entirely feasible.  all it takes is a record label wanting to cash in on the name of an influential band or artist, and having the connections to snag a bunch of at least fairly well-known bands.  so do your part.  just say no to bad tribute albums.

Barry: Top 5 songs about death. A Laura's Dad tribute list, okay? Okay. Leader of the Pack. The guy fuckin' beefs it on his motorcycle and dies, right? Dead Man's Curve. Jan & Dean.
Dick: Do you know that right after they recorded that song Jan himself crashed his car...
Barry: It was Dean you fuckin' idiot...
Rob: It was Jan. It was a long time after the song.
Barry: Okay, whatever. Tell Laura I Love Her. That would bring the house down - Laura's Mom could sing it. You know what I'd want? One Step Beyond by Madness. And, uh, You Can't Always Get What You Want.
Dick: No. Immediate disqualification because of its involvement with The Big Chill.
Barry: Oh God. You're right!
Dick: Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald - Gordon Lightfoot.
Barry: You bastard! That's so good - that should have been mine... The night Laura's daddy died. Sha na na na na na na na na! Brother what a night it really was. Mother what a night it really... angina's tough! Glory be!

I was at tower records tonight and was freaking out at the tribute albums they had. Vitamin Records keeps putting out these String Quartet tributes... to a whole lot of artists including really good ones. The thing is, they basically just make a tribute album for any artist thats put out an album. Thus, I did indeed see tribute albums to: Yellowcard, Hubastank, Nickleback, Hawthorne Heights, Jessica Simpson (huh?), Limp Bizkit, and wait for it... wait for it... OH, YOU KNOW ITS COMING... Creed.

The most ridiculous part was that on the back of each cd they had a paragraph explaining that artist's greatness and contributions that artist made to music.

The entire catalogue is online here (Though the recent releases aren't up yet)


Some highlights:

Limp Bizkit-Leading the wave of rock/rap hybrids, Limp Bizkit has carved out a loyal following over the years. Relentless touring and the occasional call to ‘break stuff’ has pushed them to the top of the charts, firmly positioning Bizkit as rock royalty.

Creed-With their combination of hard-hitting rock and earthy spirituality, Creed captured the hearts, minds and souls of millions of fans across the world. Creed has made faith in a higher power cool again.

P.O.D.- With eclectic influences ranging from nu-metal to latin to hip-hop and their undeniably positive message, it’s no wonder Southern California’s P.O.D. has made fans across the globe. And they rock hard!


Jessica Simpson-She’s America’s sexy, blonde mistress of all media – Billboard chart-topper, reality TV star, magazine cover golden girl. But it’s her awesome voice that propelled Jessica Simpson to the peak of pop diva-dom. Those are gospel roots showing through that blonde mane, and they give Simpson’s vocals their power and a unique, sultry innocence. She can go good-girl sweet on a ballad, or bad-girl breathy on a dance track, turning tunes by the country’s top songwriters into “Irresistible” Jessica platinum.  You’ve never experienced Jessica Simpson like this. The String Quartet Tribute kicks out the hype and cranks up the celebratory vibe of her music. When these violin and cello players launch into her party-rousing hits, grooving is no longer optional... and if they wrap their strings around a love song like “I Wanna Love You Forever”, hang on to your heart. Simpson plus Strings equals sweet, danceable pop perfection.

Ok, so this has nothing to do with the intended purpose of this thread but I thought it highly appropriate.

I doubt the horrible emo bands you mentioned have even really listened to Fugazi, much less cared enough about them to make a tribute album.

What would really scare me is a tribute album by My Chemical Romance to Iron Maiden. Apparently, their singer counts them as an influence, so this is actually a remote, yet absolutely terrifying possibility.

And Coheed and Cambria covering any decent bands from the 4 or 5 genres that they manage to butcher.

<Jcknbl's post>

haha, i love those.  they also have a lot of bluegrass tributes to rather non-bluegrass artists.

my absolute favorite, though, is this one: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product_listing.gsp?cat=79405&path=0%3A4104%3A4118%3A5090

it's a tribute to Blink 182 done by a band called THE UNITED STATES OF PUNK!  AMAZING!

Storm Rider: yeah, i doubt they have, too, i just went on myspace music and searched for the most popular bands that have "post-hardcore" listed as one of their genres.

A 'tribute' to Edge of Sanity (release later this year):

1: The Black Dahlia Murder - Blood Coloured
2: Trivium - Elegy
3: In Flames - The Sinner and the Sadness
4: Bleeding Through - Hell Is Where the Heart Is
5: Children of Bodom - Disrupting the Inhabitants
6: Bullet For My Valentine - Sacrificed
7: Soilwork - Twilight

...no, actually, it's too painful to continue.

What's so bad about Metallicas cover of Whiskey in a Jar? It's not as good as the original, or a good cover in the sense of trying to do something new with the song, but it's not like it's grade-a rape or anything. It's better than pretty much everything metallica have written themselves for at least a decade. That video sounds pretty retarded though.

Also, Whiskey in the Jar is a folk song, so Metallica didn't really cover it from Thin Lizzy, except for using the same version of the words that they did.

The party in the video for "Whiskey in the Jar" is pretty rad, but I don't see how it has anything to do with the song.  Of course, I'll kind of forgive it, because it didn't suck so hard as a number of songs on that album, plus it's not really a Thin Lizzy song.  It's just that Thin Lizzy did that version of it.

After reading this, I got up to go to the bathroom, then it just hit me.  The full import of how awful that idea is added to the fact that IT ACTUALLY EXISTS!  I started wimpering, and praying for the souls of the musicians on those albums.  Though, I'd do one of those albums in a second.  I bet they made pretty good money.

There is a tribute album to Kyuss out, in fact.  It's called "Listen Without Distraction" and it's all done by South American stoner-rock bands.  I have the cover of "Asteroid," which is by a band called Poseidotica that I rather enjoy, and the cover's pretty well done.

Oh god. The thought of Green Day trying to play 2112 makes me shiver on the inside.


The scary thing is that you can't really rule that out nowadays.

Coldplay - "Megalomaniac"(KMFDM, not Incubus)
Streetlight Manifesto - "Figure Number Five"
Devil Driver - "My December"(this may actually be better...)
Eminem - "ice Ice baby" (for white-boy ridiculousness)
Soul Coughing - "Bring Tha Pain"
Cake - "Tanzt Mit Mir"
System of a Down - "The 1812 Overture"
Marilyn Manson - "Drunken Lullabies"(again, might actually be good. All signs point to "no," however)

And finally...

Mogwai - Back to Mad

Eminem remixing Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon as a tribute.

I think a little bit of me just died for mentioning even the thought.

oh, jeez, yeah.  that thing is awful.

of course, the only song i heard was the RxBandits one.  and it was terrible.  and keeping in mind that they're the only Drive-Thru Records band that i like, the rest of the CD must only be good for inducing vomiting.
