Album cover spoofs, goofs, tributes, send ups, near misses and coincedences. This is the all-new Knockoff*Project. There are over 100 new knockoffs...stashed all over the place. I've split it into sections. I hope it's still as fun and awesome as before. Still, there is no rhyme, reason or order to it. OK, there's the new Beatles section and all the sexy ones are in one place too. Enjoy!
The Knockoff*Project is owned and operated by BlueDisguise Records
