Cover albums are always "iffy"

But there are a few that really do justice to the artists. Notably: "We're a Happy Family," the Ramones cover album is amazing. Care to hear Marylin Manson cover "The KKK Took my Baby Away"? You should.

Another cover album I'm fully endorsing is this one: "The Green Album." Those catchy tunes from childhood favorite films and shows, re-imagined by incredible artists like OK-Go, and Weezer, are must-hear music. Andrew Bird's "It's Not Easy Being Green" will bring you to tears.
