September 21, 2009 3:11 PM ET

500 Days of Summer star Zooey Deschanel and Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard were married this weekend at a ceremony near Seattle, Washington, Deschanel's rep confirmed to Us Weekly. This match made in indie rock heaven had dated for a year before becoming engaged in December 2008.

The couple are latest in a long line of actors and rockers who have either dated or tied the knot, though this pair does blur the lines with their day jobs: The bride has starred in films like Yes Man while splitting duties with M. Ward in indie rock band She & Him; and the Postal Service frontman and groom will make his acting debut in the upcoming film Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, based on the David Foster Wallace short story collection.

“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."
