There are those who are convinced that longtime Beastie Boys video director Nathanial Hornblower is Adam Yauch in disguise and not in fact a relative of Yauch's from a foreign land known only as the Oppenzell. Disbelievers, bow down before this photo of the Beasties and Hornblower together – as anyone who's ever been on the Internet knows, stuff like this can't be faked! Hornblower recently sent a letter to the New York Times protesting a review that tagged his "Ch-Check it Out" video as "desperate." "fishy" and "disorganized." "I remember people like you laughing at me at the university," he wrote, "and now they are all eating off of my feet." He also told the Times his mailman's goat died delivering the review. "I now wrap my dead goat carcass in the soiled New York Times – and you are not for getting to buy me a replacement! Please send that one more goat to me now!"

“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."
