Jane's Addiction's 2011 album The Great Escape Artist was the band's first in eight years, and the alt-rockers celebrated with a free show at New York's Terminal 5 on July 25th, 2011. Live in NYC captures the 2011 show with live-wire performances of hits like "Been Caught Stealing," "Stop!" and "Jane Says," as well as old cuts like "Up the Beach" and "Ain't No Right." Of course, Jane's Addiction were there to promote their new album, and their spiraling debut performance of The Great Escape Artist's "Irresistible Force (Met the Immovable Object)" swoops down halfway through the set.

“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."
