You Oughta Know

Arguably the most infamous use of "oughta" in a song title came from Alanis Morissette, when the jilted singer howled the words "You Oughta Know " at her ex on her breakthrough album Jagged Little Pill. But lots of other singers have made use of the word in their song titles before and after the rage anthem hit the airwaves in 1995. Can you guess which artists sang these "oughta" songs?
