Watch Fucked Up Cover Alanis Morissette

This year, Alanis Morrisette’s ridiculously important album Jagged Little Pill turned 20, and our own Caitlin White wrote a great piece about it. To help commemorate the album’s anniversary, the Canadian broadcast network CBC has recruited a whole bunch of Canadian artists to cover songs from the album, and I am delighted to report that Toronto hardcore warriors Fucked Up are among their number. In a live-in-studio session for CBC, Fucked Up took on the once-amiable amble “All I Really Want,” turning that song’s harmonica riff into a triple-guitar squall and stretching it out for six minutes. Morissette’s words sound a whole lot different coming out of the ripped-up throat of Fucked Up frontman Damian Abraham (who, full disclosure/humblebrag, is my friend). This cover could’ve gone a lot of different ways, but the end result sounds awesome. Watch them barrel through their cover below.

Can you imagine the restraint it took for them to pick a non-“You Oughta Know” song?
