Because She Won't Go Away
(Click to listen to "Banksy's own rudimentary composition," That's Hot*)
Bristol, England "guerrilla graffiti" artist Banksy "smuggled 500 doctored copies of Paris Hilton's debut album into music stores throughout the UK, where they have sold without the shops' knowledge.
In place of Ms Hilton's bubble-gum pop songs, the CDs feature Banksy's own rudimentary compositions. On the cover of the doctored CD, Ms Hilton's dress has been digitally repositioned to reveal her bare breasts; on an inside photo, her head has been replaced with that of her dog."

A copy of the fake CD sold for $750 on ebay.
Here's Banksy in action:
Thanks to stereogum and freakgirl.
* Update: Apparently the tracks on the fake CD were mixed by Danger Mouse.
