The Flaming Lips—who had the SftD #2 Cover of the '00s—released a full-album cover of Dark Side of the Moon last week. Fun stuff, especially the recreation of the random interview snippets. Like the original, this is best experienced as a whole, probably with headphones on and red-laser drawings overhead, but the cover of "Money" has a clever angle that calls for special attention. Gone are the clinking coins, ripping receipts and cash-register ka-chings, replaced with electronic noises far more appropriate for the financial stresses of 2010.

Money [feat. Henry Rollins] - ...

The Lips answer for "How would you cover 'On the Run'?" is worth some extra songs today.
