LAS VEGAS - JUNE 11: (L-R) Guitarist Rick Nielsen, frontman Robin Zander, bassist Tom Petersson and drummer Bun E. Carlos of the band Cheap Trick appear during a news conference to announce "Sgt. Pepper Live," an exclusive engagement at the Las Vegas Hilton June 11, 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The rock group will be accompanied by a full symphony orchestra for nine shows in September as they perform songs by The Beatles including the album, "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" from start to finish.

The BeatlesSgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is one of the most beloved albums of all time, so over the course of 50 years, a number of artists have paid tribute to this remarkable work by putting their own spin on its songs.

We dug through our favorite Sgt. Peppers covers and created our own covers-only version of the album. Sure, nothing beats the original, but we’re rather fond of the collection of artists on this playlist.
