Bob Dylan will kick off an arena tour in support of his new disc, Modern Times, on October 11th in Vancouver. With Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters (in unplugged mode) and the Raconteurs sharing opening duties, the tour runs through November 18th in Philadelphia. In advance of the outing, Dylan is increasing his visibility: In late August, he released a music video for "When the Deal Goes Down," starring Scarlett Johansson; debuted a commercial for Apple's iTunes music store; and started making his XM Satellite Radio show, Theme Time Radio Hour, available for free at aolradio.com.

“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."
