entry arrow1:56 PM | Still Jagged, 20 Years Later

Twenty years ago, my generation got baptised by this album. Alanis Morrissette's Jagged Little Pill (1995) jolted us. Coming in halfway in the 1990s, it may have been our last gasp of jagged musical authenticity before we got consumed by the sugary confections of boy bands, Spice Girls, and Britney Spears. Here's some online coverage of the 20th anniversary, and then some...

The Atlantic gathers three staff writers to discuss the seminal.

Hazlitt Magazine covers Alanis' pressured pop history in Canada that led to Jagged.

Entertainment Weekly jogs up personal memories when the album became definitive.

Philippine Daily Inquirer gives space to Pam Pastor to talk about her album memories.

Fusion considers her legacy.

The Week talks about how life-changing the album was for many.

Women's Studies in Communication examines the intersection of third-wave feminism and Generation X with the album.

Billboard reveals the storyboard around the album for Broadway.
