Alanis Morissette Admits She Didn't Even Want 'Ironic' On The 'Jagged Little Pill' Album

There are some things that just belong together. Jim and Pam. Pizza and hot sauce. Sushi and a three day bloat.

You know what else goes really well together?! Alanis' "Jagged Little Pill" album and the hit song, "Ironic."

"Ironic" is one of the most iconic songs off Alanis' legendary album, but could you believe it almost didn't make the cut?!

*Jagged Little Pill* is the sound of the mid '90s, okay? Don't @ me! 1995 would not have been the banger year it was without this album!

Who hasn't scream cried to You Oughta Know while driving around in the rain at 3 am?! No, just me?

Okay, cool.

Alanis was the OG angry heartbreak queen. And while she's super in love and happy now, Alanis knew how to write a HEART WRENCHING ballad back in the day!

One of her most iconic ballads is "Ironic" off her third studio album, "Jagged Little Pill."

Sing it with me now!!!! *IT'S LIKE RAAAAAAAIIIIIIN ON YOUR WEDDING DAY!!!! IT'S A FREE RIIIIDEEEEEEE WHEN YOU'VE ALREADY PAID!!!!! ITS THE GOOD ADVICE YOU JUST DIDN'T TAKE!!!!!*

Well, would you believe me if I told you that Alanis almost DIDN'T put it on the album?!

I KNOW, RIGHT?!

While chatting with *Rolling Stone* magazine, Alanis admitted she had hesitations about the song.

"You know, I didn’t even want that song on the record,” Alanis explained.

"I remember a lot of people going, ‘Please, please, please.’ That was one of the first songs Glen Ballard and I wrote, almost like a demo."

"But people wound up liking the melody, and I wasn’t that precious about it. I came to realize later that perhaps I should have been. [Laughs] Whoops!"

Thank gosh Alanis made the call to leave the song on the album! Wouldn't that be IRONIC?!
