Ciccone Youth

One part joke and two parts awesome---in the 80s, Sonic Youth got together with Mike Watt and formed Ciccone Youth, a band that existed strictly to cover Madonna songs. They only did a handful, since such a project has a sort of top limit on how interesting it can be, but the results are surprisingly listenable. Very mix-tape ready. Here's their cover-ish version of "Into the Groove".

I've alway felt that despite the name and the two Madonna covers on the album, Ciccone Youth are actually best seen as a Faust tribute act... The Whitey Album is the best album Faust never made.
