List of Pixies tribute albums

Summary

A number of tribute albums to the Pixies, an American alternative rock band, have been recorded since the band's break-up in 1993. Artists featured on the albums range from American rock bands, such as Weezer, OK Go and Eve 6, to lesser-known European bands. The first widely released Pixies tribute album, Death to the Pixies—We're Better!, was released in February 1998 as the result of a Pixies cover contest in the Netherlands that was launched by the magazine Oor, the radio station VPRO and the record label Play It Again Sam.
