MustVote.com has signed up bands ranging from Radiohead to Death Cab for Cutie to donate free downloads as incentive for young people to register to vote. The non-profit aims to register 100,000 new voters between eighteen and twenty-five in the final weeks before their states' deadlines.

Visitors are rewarded with a free song -- an exclusive studio track, live performance or remix -- for every person they convince to register through the Web site, with those under seventeen able to take part as well.

Other bands participating include Bright Eyes, Lisa Loeb, Talib Kweli, Cursive, the Distillers, the Faint, the Fever and Von Bondies.

“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."
