Everyone’s favorite Jack Russell pup can obviously produce some good bangers, but one of my favorite things to do when I get a new K.K. Slider track in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is to look at the album cover. You’ll see K.K. Slider in all sorts of situations and get-ups, and sometimes he’s even accompanied by other Animal Crossing villagers.

But what if K.K. Slider were behind some of the biggest and well-known albums in real life? That’s a question many artists are answering lately in the form of a “redraw” challenge, where they take actual albums and find ways to include the hippie musician. The results are as amazing as they sound.

The best part? You can probably look up a chunk of these artists, and there’s a good chance someone has already made a K.K. Slider “cover” of them already. Here’s “KK EARFQUAKE,” a take on Tyler, The Creator’s heart-rending single. Or maybe you’d like to listen to KK Sicko Mode? There’s plenty more where that came from.
