Jimmy Fallon Convinced Alanis Morissette This Was A Good Idea

Alanis Morissette’s massive, important album Jagged Little Pill turns 20 this year, and our own Caitlin White wrote a great appreciation of it not long ago. Morissette herself just released a massive 20th-anniversary edition of the album, and last night, she was on The Tonight Show to promote it. But Jimmy Fallon had other plans for her. And perhaps that’s why she ended up in a comedy bit with Fallon and recent-vintage pop star Megan Trainor, performing the dumbest-imaginable rendition of Jagged Little Pill’s dumbest song. That’s right: They dressed-up as an all-chicken band called Jagged Little Chick and performed a version of “Ironic” that consists entirely of chicken clucks. It sounds exactly the way you’re imagining. Morissette also did an acoustic, non-clucking take on “Hand In My Pocket,” and you can watch both videos below.

The Jagged Little Pill box-set reissue is out now on Rhino. For conceptual versions of Jagged Little Pill songs, I’ll take Fucked Up’s cover of “All I Really Want” any day.
