Alanis Morissette's epic breakup anthem "You Oughta Know" was inspired by Dave Coulier, or so the urban legend goes. But was it really?
When you hear Coulier's name, you either picture his epic mullet from Full House or the fact that Uncle Joey from Full House inspired "You Oughta Know."
That's how associated he is with the song, widely believed to be inspired by him being an a--hole to Alanis. Dave is singing a different tune now, though.
In a recent interview, Coulier says that yes, he dated Alanis Morissette dated, but there's no way he had anything to do with the 1995 smash hit.
"You know, it's just funny to be the supposed subject of that song," he said. "First of all, the guy in that song is a real a-hole, so I don't want to be that guy."
No one wants to be ... but is he?
Coulier says that we all think this only because he inadvertently started what he now calls a myth by jokingly admitting to being the song's subject.
