Album Stream: Beck Covers Dylan, YYYs Cover Ramones


If you’re like us, you’ve been hoarding every opportunity to hear tracks from the forthcoming War Child benefit compilation Heroes.

Thus far, we’ve been treated to the Hold Steady covering Bruce Springsteen, Elbow covering U2, and TV On the Radio interpreting David Bowie.

Those were awesome — but things are about to get awesomer!

The album isn’t out until February 24, but you can hear it streaming in its entirety (we’re talking Beck’s take on Bob Dylan’s “Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat,” Hot Chip’s cover of Joy Division’s “Transmission,” Lily Allen on the Clash’s “Straight to Hell” and more!) online now at the the War Child MySpace page, where you can also pre-order the album.

Listen to the compilation. Then tell us your favorite cover in the comment section below.
