Alanis Morissette’s 1996 hit “Ironic,” a catchy song that doubles as a true/false quiz for every middle school English teacher in America, is finally ironic.
Sisters Eliza and Rachael Hurwitz have righted all of Morissette’s wrongs in a cover called “It’s Finally Ironic,” with lyrics like “He won the lottery, and died the next day/from a severe paper cut from his lottery ticket/It’s a black fly in your chardonnay/that was specifically purchased to repel black flies.”

Simply put, this is one of the greatest things ever. This song has always annoyed me.
