Band of Horses usually lie deep in the sweet spot between the dreamy Nineties guitar majesty of Built to Spill and gorgeously harmonized, golden-bearded Seventies folk rock. But this has more going on under the hood than usual, implying the band's upcoming LP will be its most rocking yet. Ben Bridwell sings about "a ramshackle crew with something to prove" over guitars that are more Crazy Horse than America while the drums gallop out of the garage.

    “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."
