Industrial music band Mindless Self Indulgence covered it on their 1999 album, Tight, as did Candiria on their album The COMA Imprint. The beat was sampled by Timbaland for a song of the same name on Missy Elliott's Under Construction, which features Method Man. Tupac Shakur did an Interpolation of the song on his 1996 album All Eyez on Me on the track No More Pain, and even gave Method Man and RZA credits in the album's liner notes.
