This extra-special 2-hour demented punk extravaganza is an audio oddity unlike anything else! An eclectic mix of artists from the world of classic and contemporary punk/indie/alt-rock have assembled, along with special guest stars from film, TV and more, to pay homage to radio icon Dr. Demento (a world renowned institution who has championed novelty music and its creators since the '70s), for this mind-blowing compilation. Over 30 different, never before released, all-new ‘punk' cover versions of ‘mad music and crazy comedy' songs famously heard on the airwaves of the legendary Dr. Demento Show – have been intermixed with ‘wild card' tracks showcasing some incredible, newly ‘demented' versions of punk-rock classics!

The result is a uniquely original, highly entertaining, modern day homage to Dr. Demento's classic radio show, and its undeniable impact on popular culture. This bizarro broadcast from beyond the fringe is hosted by Dr. Demento himself, offering up interesting factoids and anecdotes between songs, with celebrity guest ID spots, creatively crafted bumper segments, and more ‘demented' surprises tying it all together into an unconventional take on the traditional radio show format. Over 2-full hours, a total of 64 tracks – all created specifically for Dr. Demento Covered in Punk!

This 3LP-set comes with an equally entertaining full-color booklet jam-packed with extensive liner notes and quotes personally written by the artists, a forward by producer John Cafiero (Misfits, Ramones, Osaka Popstar), an Afterword by Dr. Demento, as well as facts, photos, and an array of dynamic paintings and illustrations created specifically for the project by a team of visual artists spanning the world of comic books, classic punk-rock album covers, Topps Trading card series, Mad Magazine and more. Joined by everyone from the Misfits, Joan Jett, Fred Schneider of the B52s, to "Weird Al" Yankovic, the late Adam "Batman" West (in one of his final performances), and Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner – (to name just a few), the Doctor is in...and he's Covered in Punk!
