The lyrics present several situations which are said to be ” ironic “, which has led to debates about whether any of them fit the accepted meaning of irony.The track topped the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart for six weeks, and reached the top five in Australia, New Zealand and Norway.

The music video was listed on VH1’s “Greatest Music Videos” list and was parodied by Allison Rheaume and “Weird Al” Yankovic.In 2004, Morissette changed the lyrics of “Ironic” to denote her support for same-sex marriage at the fifteenth GLAAD Media Awards. This version was included on her albums iTunes Originals (2004) and Jagged Little Pill Acoustic (2005), and was performed at the House of Blues in 2005, along with Canadian singer Avril Lavigne. “Ironic” was included on the set list of her tour Jagged Little Pill World Tour (1995), and her compilation albums MTV Unplugged (1999), The Collection (2005), among others.
