It's probably not the first time Strokes singer Julian Casablancas has had a pair of panties on his head. On November 4th, the band played a surprise gig at New York's Bowery Ballroom. When a pair of undies flew onstage during "Alone, Together," Casablancas donned them as a hat and kept on singing. Jaunty!

“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."
