"Since U Been Gone" will probably go down in history as one of the early 00's best pop songs, along with other pop gems like "Toxic" and "Umbrella." Like "Toxic" and "Umbrella," "Since U Been Gone" is no stranger to the cover scene. Since it's induction into chambers of pop royalty, Robyn, The Gossip, Ted Leo, the Aquabats, and Fucked Up have all covered the song.


Keri Hilson, on many occasions during her stay on Justin Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveShow, covered Kelly Clarkson's trademark single and Timbaland and JT have taken the vocals from her live performances put them over a generic Timbo/JT beat. The cover only runs a minute and 31 seconds, but it gives "Since U Been Gone" a nice r&b flavor to it, something I never imagined I'd enjoy.
