Timbaland gets covered (Part I)

As much as we all appreciate Timbaland and the music he creates what about other musicians? Sure plenty of them have already worked with Tim and many more are on deck but what about those who are just plain fans? What's the best form of flattery in a musicians eyes? A cover of their favorite music of course and that's exactly what some bands have done. Here are just a few of many bands who covered Timbaland all of which you would never even expect to necessarily be fans. Listen:

The Eels "Get Your Freak On"

Bloc Party "Say It Right"

The Gossip "Are You That Somebody"

Thoughts? If you know any more hit me up.
