Click to listen to Raw Geronimo's 'Role Play'

Indie sextet Raw Geronimo have recently released their latest 7", which features the upbeat surf-pop track "Role Play." Singer Laena Geronimo's vocals may be cheery, but she insists that the track has a darker nature despite its poppy sound. "'Role Play' is a super cynical, but also fun, song about people pretending to be other people on the Internet," she says. "Musically and lyrically it goes through a lot of different moods and perspectives, from whimsical to psychotic to happy-go-lucky pop and back again. It's a fun song."

“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."
