For All I Care is an album by The Bad Plus with Wendy Lewis on vocals. It was released on October 20, 2008, in Europe and on February 3, 2009, in the U.S. This is the first Bad Plus album to include a vocalist, as well as the first to feature no original songs. Although the Bad Plus are known for playing inventive covers of rock songs, this is their first album to exclusively feature cover songs, including a few 20th-century classical pieces.
