The Knockoff Project. Album cover homages and rip-offs.

The site design is surely a knock-off of bluerobot, but that seems to be OK, as the owner of bluerobot says Please feel free to borrow, steal, abduct, and/or torture the documents contained in the Layout Reservoir. (I know because I nicked the same source for my site too)

I was about to flip out over the omission of "London Calling" but never fear for it is on the second page!

Wee, they have the Melvins solo albums that they did in tribute to KISS on there.

Awesome link!

Cool link. I've always thought the cover of Weezer's first album owed a lot to The Feelies.

The compiler missed Jill Sobule's regrettable double-ripoff of Saul Bass' work for Saint Joan and Man with the Golden Arm.

The cover of the lastest Ween album is knockoff of this 70's board game.

Personal favorite:

Sarah Vaughan and James Brown

Seperated at birth?!?!?
