A Compilation of Scott Weiland Cover Songs is a compilation album and third solo studio album by Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland, released on August 30, 2011. The album consists entirely of cover songs, featuring an array of covers of artists that inspired Weiland, such as David Bowie, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Smiths. The album was originally set to be released together with Weiland's memoir Not Dead & Not for Sale but Weiland decided later to release the album by itself exclusively in digital format.
The cover of the Beatles' "Revolution" is actually a Stone Temple Pilots recording that was originally released as a single in 2001, in honor of 9/11, with proceeds going to the Twin Towers Fund.
"Reel Around the Fountain" and "Fame" previously appeared on Weiland's 2008 album "Happy" in Galoshes (the former only available on the "Deluxe" edition).
