Republic Enemy - Fear of a Black Planet

Hoth Chocolate's Greatest Hits

If you want to immerse yourself in the music of Hoth Chocolate, the album to get is defintely "Hoth Chocolate - 20 Hothest Hits." It features all of the British soul band's best songs, and is as cool as the snowy planet of Hoth, from which the fictional group is based.

Greedo Day's hit album 'Wookiee'

While Greedo Day has been around for a while, the punk rock band really broke into intergalactic stardom with "Wookiee," their critically acclaimed third album. This was definitely the cassette tape to have in the early days of the Rebellion.

'1977' by Taylor Sith

Jabba 'Gold' Greatest Hits Album

It's hard to beat the tunes of the funky Tatooine-ish band Jabba, and their greatest Hutts album "Gold" featured every single one of the group's best songs from over the years. Whether you're in a cantina in Mos Eisley or one far across the galaxy, you'll probably hear one of Jabba's songs playing on the old jukebox.

Lady JarJar with 'The Shame'

She's probably the most controversial artist in the universe, but Lady JarJar's debut album "The Shame" really took the galaxies by storm. Fortunately (or unfortunately) for Lady JarJar, the paparazzi-sa either turn and run the other way or throw their cameras at the intergalactic pop star when they see her coming down the street.

The Rolling Clones with 'Tatooine You'

The Rolling Clones released their 18th album -- "Tatooine You" -- to huge fanfare. "Tatooine You" soared to the top of the Billboard charts, selling several million copies on planet Earth alone (sales figures for other planets have not been disclosed). The album featured one of the band's most popular songs, "Start Me Up for Lightspeed," and was the final Rolling Clones album to hit the top of the charts.
