In an effort to "beat the Master to it," comedian Tim Heidecker has released his own epic song, "Titanic," inspired by Bob Dylan. Last week, Dylan revealed that his upcoming album Tempest will feature a 14-minute title track about the sunken ship. Heidecker's take is 15 minutes, 11 seconds long and accompanied by a video.

Heidecker's version is available now through his website. Bob Dylan's Tempest is set for release on September 11th.

“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."
