More than a year after Radiohead released In Rainbows with a name-your-price model, they have finally released sales figures. The album – which later became available at retail stores – sold 2 million copies, a figure that includes digital downloads as well as physical-CD sales. They also sold 100,000 copies of the $81 deluxe edition. Radiohead claim to have made more money on the digital release of In Rainbows than they made for their total take on 2003's Hail to the Thief, which has sold 1 million copies in the U.S.

“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."
