Need Monkees Sheet Music or Midi software for your own Monkees cover or tribute?

Welcome to The Monkees Covers and Tributes FAQ!

In this FAQ, you'll find information about covers of Monkees songs, Monkees Tribute Albums and Monkees tribute bands!

Have a submission? Send it to: and put "Cover FAQ" in the subject line!

If you're not sure what kind of info to send, just send all the info you have or take a look, below, to see what kind of info is included with each type of entry.

Please note that, to keep this page down to a reasonable size, this FAQ cannot extend to include all the live covers of Monkees songs performed each night by the thousands of so-called "unknown" bands out there.

However, please do send all the information you can if you know of a relatively unknown band that has a regional radio hit with a Monkees cover or has a Monkees cover used as opening or closing theme music for a television program, special or movie (or a regular radio program) or if the band releases an album or single that includes a Monkees cover and is available in stores outside of the band's immediate area.

If you happen to be at home or at the office cleaning your desk and see an incomplete or incorrect entry and you know the missing or correct information, PLEASE send it along!

Thanks and enjoy!

ResidentsResidue DeuxSlow, weird, avant-jazz/rock??? 
Known for bizarre covers of pop music, this group rarely performed live, never revealed their names or faces and never granted interviews. Their name was bestowed upon them by the press, for their habit of mailing demos to "Residents" of famous addresses, including at least one demo sent to Nixon's Whitehouse.
