After more than a year on the road to support their 1995 album, The Bends, Radiohead have honed their performance chops to the point of becoming one of the best live acts in the business. The British group's June U.S. shows were brilliant, offering a mix of new material from its current effort, OK Computer, and oldies like "Creep" and "High and Dry."

“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."
