Ever think that something was missing from your musical library? Well, we’ve got just the fix – Alanis Morissette has been mashed up with Alice In Chains to form Alanis In Chains.
There’s been some pretty great mash-ups over the years. Who would’ve thought that Neutral Milk Hotel’s In The Aeroplane Over The Sea would go so well alongside some hip-hop music in Neutral Bling Hotel’s In My G4 Over Da Sea ? Or perhaps the musical works of The Beatles and Jay-Z complied into The Grey Album by DJ Danger Mouse.
Well, buckle-up because you’re about to hear another mash-up that you thought would never happen: Alanis Morissette has been paired up with Alice In Chains to put on ‘You Would Know’ by Alanis In Chains.
That’s right – combine ‘Would’ by Alice In Chains with Morissette’s ‘You Oughta Know’, and you get this insane, new creation. With Morissette’s lyrics place on top of Alice In Chain’s music beating along in the background, you better bet that you’re in for a new experience.
Starting off, the new tune makes the lyrics sound a bit darker, and Morissette’s usual peppy voice take on a gruffer feel. It rocks along pretty well for quite a while, seemingly matching her mood that she was feeling almost a bit better than her original backing track did.
However, we’ll admit that it does get a bit rocky when it gets to the chorus, as Alice In Chain’s song just can’t seem to keep up with the pep in Morissette’s step.
But, hey, don’t take our opinion to heart. You can check out the mash-up created by frontman Chris Harvey of I Was Awake, and listen to the magic for yourself.

Okay, let’s be honest, it actually isn’t the best mash-up we’ve ever heard, but it definitely puts a new spin on Alanis Morissette’s angsty lyrics in ‘You Oughta Know’.
Who knows? You may just find a new love for the kooky sounds that bring it together.
