October 16, 2001 12:00 AM ET

Bruce Springsteen has lined up a long list of performers for Allegiance of Neighbors, a two-night benefit performance in Red Bank, New Jersey, to benefit Monmouth County victims and survivors of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

The performances are scheduled for October 18th and 19th at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank. In addition to a performance by Springsteen, the two shows will feature appearances by Jon Bon Jovi, Joan Jett, Joe Ely, the Smithereens and side projects by E Street Band members Gary Tallent and Max Weinberg. Also appearing are former Elvis Presley backers D.J. Fontana, Sonny Burgess and Jerry Sheff.

The sound check for the first performance will be opened up to families of the more than 160 Monmouth County victims of the tragedy. The October 19th show will be televised on CN8, the Comcast Network, which serves parts of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey. The channel will also air a toll-free number during the broadcast to help raise additional funds for the effort. Those seeking to make donations can also go to www.allianceofneighbors.org.

Song Stories

“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."
