Courtney Love has dubbed her new all-girl punk side-project "Bastard." The Hole< frontwoman has tapped Veruca Salt's Louise Post, who has band a pal since Veruca Salt opened up for Hole in 1994, to play guitar. Also onboard are former Hole drummer Patty Schemel, and bassist Gina Crosley from Chicago's Rockit Girl, who was recruited on Post's recommendation, after Post produced Rockit Girl's most recent album.

Love confirmed the lineup on her Web site, www.holemusic.com, explaining that the new band will enter a Los Angeles studio next week to beginning writing the album for Epitaph Records. "We're hoping to make a South of France, AC/DC, fuck-off record," Love explained.

“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."
