Covers is a compilation album by the American alternative metal band Deftones. The album was released through Warner Bros. Records as a limited edition release for Record Store Day on April 16, 2011. It was distributed exclusively in a vinyl record format limited to 5,000 copies.[1]

As the title suggests, Covers is a compilation of cover songs—many of which were previously released on B-Sides & Rarities (2005) and the digital version of Diamond Eyes (2010).[1] Deftones record cover songs after each album recording session, and the songs on Covers span their entire career. The cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man" was recorded before the group's debut album Adrenaline (1995) when vocalist Chino Moreno was about 17 years old.[2]
