Greased is an EP by Less Than Jake featuring heavily abridged ska punk cover versions of songs from the musical Grease. Eight songs, all of which were included in the film version and one of which (the Rodgers and Hart standard "Blue Moon") predated the musical, were included. Greased has been released twice – the first release was discontinued to avoid a lawsuit with Paramount Pictures (who own the rights to the film) and Universal Music Group (who own the rights to the songs featured in the film Grease), and the second was released several months later after a deal had been reached; the re-release featured different artwork (pictured on the right), parodying promotional artwork from the original musical.
