Last Seen: In 2012, she released her eighth studio album, Havoc and Bright Lights, and has since been offering choice bits of advice in her column for The Guardian.
Slammin’ Festival Jams: “You Oughta Know”, “Hand in My Pocket”, “Ironic”, “You Learn”, “Head Over Feet”, “All I Really Want”, and “Thank U”
Which Lineup? Coachella
Having sold over 60 million albums, Alanis Morissette is hardly what you’d dub “a ’90s act.” Still, most would agree that her best work hails from the same era that gave us Nickelodeon’s Gak. 1996’s Jagged Little Pill was like Frampton Comes Alive for anyone growing up during the ’90s, spawning five hit singles that conquered the airwaves and MTV for years and years to follow. And while her followup, 1998’s Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, didn’t exactly capture that same magic, it did give us “Thank U”, a totally underrated gem that’s still worth singing whenever it surfaces on the radio. Seeing how Coachella is pretty much in her backyard — she lives in, you guessed it, the City of Angels — Goldenvoice only needs to knock. –Michael Roffman
