It’s been 10 years since Kelly Clarkson‘s “Since U Been Gone” was released on Nov. 16, 2004, which was many, many post-breakup car ride sing-alongs ago.

And as far as broken-hearted power anthems go, we are so never moving on from this Clarkson classic, a glorious homage to the singer’s early career – and the many chart-toppers to come.

It’s no easy feat keeping up with Clarkson’s powerhouse vocals. Trust – we’ve tried (reference: the aforementioned car rides). But many artists have taken on her Grammy-winning hit, so we’re revisiting our favorite covers (mashups included) in honor of a song we can truly listen to again and again (and again and ag-aaain).

Also, a note to baby River: You weren’t alive when this song was released, but you may need it later.
