The third compilation in the War Child series boasts another impressive line-up of who's who in the indie world. Heroes is an all covers effort with contributions from Beck, Franz Ferdinand, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Estelle, Hot Chip and TV On The Radio among others. Artists coverered include Bob Dylan, The Stooges, U2, Joy Division, The Clash and Stevie Wonder. The album benefits the War Child organization, a charity that raises funds for aid in war torn countries, which pretty much leaves you no choice but to buy a copy or two.
