''Jagged Little Pill'' is the third studio album (and the first to be released internationally) by Canadian singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette. The album marked a shift in style and genre for Morissette from her previous dance pop sound. As detailed in the article about the seventh track, "You Learn", the title is a metaphor for lessons of life that are hard to accept. The album was Morissette's breakthrough album, and contained five hits, "You Oughta Know", "Ironic", "You Learn", "Hand in My Pocket", and "Head over Feet".

The album is considered one of the most successful albums of all time for its many commercial achievements, received awards and cultural resonance, worldwide. The album garnered great success, spending twelve non-consecutive weeks at number one on the U.S. ''Billboard'' 200 albums chart. By 2009, the album had sold 33 million units worldwide.

In October 2002, ''Rolling Stone'' ranked it number 31 on its ''Women In Rock - The 50 Essential Albums'' list, and in 2003 the magazine ranked it number 327 on its list of ''The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time''. The album also holds a title in ''The Definitive 200 Albums'' list, in which it is placed at number 26. - Wikipedia
