5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing collection from the brightest and best......, 2 Dec 2001
By A Customer
One of the first tribute albums I ever bought and one of the only ones I still regularly listen to. This compilation introduced me to the likes of Alice Donut and Neurosis. As hard as it may be to believe, most of the artists add something to the original tracks, rather than detracting from them - whether it's Faith No More's lounge-band interpretation of Let's Lynch the Landlord, or Neurosis' death/industrial metal version of Saturday Night Holocaust - you can't help but think that the Kennedys' tracks have been improved-on.
High-lights include the "more out of tune than the original" Ill in the Head by Victim's Family, and the brilliantly surreal Insight by Kramer (god only knows where the interview came from which backs the track). Equally, Moon over Marin could have been written for melodic noise band Les Thugs - tinnily beautiful and reminiscent of Revolver at their best.
On the whole it is difficult to fault. It comes with the usual Alternative Tentacles propaganda and is infused with the biting satire and unconventional humour of both the band and the label. I'd buy this now, and get a piece of subversive music history before it's too late. Sublime.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best tribute a band could ask for, 20 Nov 2003

I love this album for its intelligent and down right bizarre mix of dead kennedy covers. It is the only compilation album I come back to again and again. It succeeds where other cover albums fail because you can hear how much the bands involved enjoy being on it. Some of the tracks are so good you forget they are covers. I love moon over marin and the Les Thugs version is sweet, possibly the only punk song about a chemical spill that will melt your heart. If you like the dead kennedys or any of the bands on this album its worth a listen.
