Pearl Jam are hoping that a new marketing push pays off big. Anxious to avoid the sluggish sales of 1996's No Code, the notoriously media- and marketing-shy band is cooperating with its label, Epic Records, in an effort to promote the new record, Yield, due in stores Feb. 3. Pearl Jam have even agreed to make a video, their first since "Jeremy" in 1992. Band members have had discussions with director Cameron Rowe (Singles, Jerry Maguire) about working on a clip for the current single, "Given to Fly."

"They felt, if we're going to do it, let's do it right," says a source close to Pearl Jam. (A band spokeswoman would not confirm the project.) The video, which may be extracted from a Crowe-directed short film, should reach MTV early this month.

“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."
