Pixies fever has swept into New York as the reunited rockers played the first of four Doolittle shows last night at the Hammerstein Ballroom. With Black Friday looming, the perfect gift for the Pixies fan in all of us is the band's mammoth Minotaur box set. In the video above, check out the limited-edition version of Minotaur, which boasts artwork from the Pixies' longtime graphic designer Vaughan Oliver. This 26-pound mega box features all five of the band's studio albums — Come On Pilgrim, Surfer Rosa, Doolittle, Bossanova and Trompe le Monde — on 24K gold-plated discs and 180-gram vinyl.

Minotaur will also come with both a 96-page fine art book and a 52-page photo book, a bookmark signed by all the members of the Pixies, two double-sided posters and a Giclee print of some of Oliver's art. Topping it all off is a DVD and Blu-ray with all five Pixies albums on 5.1 Surround Sound Mix, an unreleased 1992 concert from London's Brixton Academy and all of the band's music videos. So yeah, it's the ultimate stocking stuffer for any Pixies fans. There's only 3,000 of these bad boys, so visit AINR.com for more info.

“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."
