     Seems like Dread Zepplin should be on that list too. And while rarely
restraining themselves to just two genres, Mr. Bungle and John Zorn's Naked
City could potentially make the list too, which kind of leads to the more
historical example of Carl Stalling and his soundtracks for Looney Tunes
cartoons. I talked with you (D^2) on Soulseek about Flying Lizards which
you verified for me isn't quite what you're looking for (wacky covers, vs.
blending of easily recognizable styles) so would Laibach's covers also be
off-base? And then would the rash of Moog covers of well known songs
towards the late 60's and early 70's also be off target?
