Alternative-punk band Thousand Mona Lisas covered the song and included it as a hidden track on their 1995 album, New Disease. Also, Off the Beat released an a cappella cover in 1997.

Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine covered the song in a comedic lounge-music style on their 2005 album Aperitif for Destruction'.

Britney Spears performed the song during her 2009 The Circus Starring: Britney Spears tour. Mike Bruno of Entertainment Weekly wrote, " she rocked it. What better way to silence the critics than to step up to the mic, say to hell with it all, and spew some of that bile. Hot, confident Britney, live vocals, a dash of rebellion…". After a number of Jonathan Coulton's fans compared Morissette's cover of "My Humps" to his cover of "Baby Got Back", he covered "You Oughta Know" himself.

In the seventh season of Australian Idol, airing in 2009, contestant Lauren Streete sang a shortened version of the song, with none of the lyrics changed for censorship.

Scala and The Kolacny Brothers covered this song as a girls choir with piano accompaniment on their 2009 release, It All Leads To This.

The song was sampled by American R&B singer Beyoncé Knowles during her 2009 I Am... Tour, as well as at the 2010 Grammys and the Glastonbury Festival 2011.

In the season nine finale of Fox Network's American Idol, which aired on May 26, 2010, Alanis Morissette sang a duet of "You Oughta Know" with finalist Crystal Bowersox. Bowersox sang the line regarding oral sex, originally "Will she go down on you in a theater", but was re-written presumably to make it "family friendly" as "Will she go down with you to the theater."

In 2010, Corey TuT recorded a Trent Reznor-inspired version for Cover Me.

The Killing Moon performed an alternative version for the cover compilation album Punk Goes 90's.

Narsha of the South Korean Pop girl group Brown Eyed Girls performed the song on the 2010 MBC Gayo Daejun (2010 MBC Music Festival).

Famous quotes containing the words samples, cover and/or versions:

    Good government cannot be found on the bargain-counter. We have seen samples of bargain-counter government in the past when low tax rates were secured by increasing the bonded debt for current expenses or refusing to keep our institutions up to the standard in repairs, extensions, equipment, and accommodations. I refuse, and the Republican Party refuses, to endorse that method of sham and shoddy economy.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)

    I wouldn’t pray just for a old man that’s dead because he’s all right. If I was to pray, I’d pray for the folks that’s alive and don’t know which way to turn. Grampa here, he ain’t got no more trouble like that. He’s got his job all cut out for him. So cover him up and let him get to it.
    Nunnally Johnson (1897–1977)

    The assumption must be that those who can see value only in tradition, or versions of it, deny man’s ability to adapt to changing circumstances.
    Stephen Bayley (b. 1951)
