One half of a double-A-sided single from indie supergroup Divine Fits (featuring Spoon's Britt Daniel and Dan Boeckner of Wolf Parade), "Ain't That the Way" jolts between classic-rock-y verses and an upbeat jangle-spastic chorus. "You got me all locked up/And I can never refuse," Daniel cries out in sandpapery ressentiment, and the revved-up, circa-1972 guitars suggest he and the other Fits are digging into some Humble Pie.

    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."
