As rap-rock team-ups go, the pairing of bros-in-tattooed ­arms Yelawolf and Travis Barker is promising: The Alabama MC and Blink-182 drummer are fleeter and slipperier than your average rap-rock lunks. Their EP has its moments: "Funky Shit" is funky indeed, with Yelawolf drawling, "Not a frat boy/I'm a rap boy/In Hollywood/Like Aykroyd." But in "Push 'Em" and the ill-conceived reggae turn "6 Feet Underground," Barker and Yelawolf can't transcend the essential gaucheness of the genre. Seems they are a bit frat-boyish, after all.

    “You Oughta Know”

    Alanis Morissette | 1995

    This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
