Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has been released from prison in the Czech Republic and is headed home to Richmond, Virginia, reports Richmond's WTVR CBS 6. The band's manager, Larry Mazor, confirmed to the news channel that Blythe has been released on bond.

Blythe had been held in a Czech prison since June over suspicion of manslaughter, stemming from a May 24th, 2010 incident in Prague when a fan who had repeatedly come onstage was pushed, fell and eventually died.

“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."
