Everything's Not Fine Fine Fine: Man Assaults Partner For Listening To Alanis Morissette

Does the insanity plea hold up in court if the defendant was compromised by pop music? A Florida man is making this claim. Twenty four-year-old Allen Casey allegedly assaulted his partner with a dinner plate for being too preoccupied with Alanis Morissette's music. "That's all that motherf----- listens to," Casey told police. His boyfriend has a large cut on the side of his face but probably a larger gash to his self-image. Fortunately, Morissette has plenty of lyrics in her repertoire about overcoming challenges and reminding former lovers of the messes they left when they went away:

All I really want is some peace man / a place to find a common ground - "All I Really Want" (Jagged Little Pill)

And what it all comes down to my friends / Is that everything's just fine fine fine / 'cause I've got one hand in my pocket / And the other one is hailing a taxi cab - "Hand In My Pocket" (Jagged Little Pill)

This shit’s making me crazy - "Straitjacket" (Flavors Of Entanglement)

Something so benign for me construed as cruelty  / Such a difference between who I am and who you see - "Straitjacket" (Flavors Of Entanglement)

When an apology's made it isn't always enough / To erase all the past in a moment - "No Apologies" (Now Is The Time)

I'm sorry to myself / For blaming myself for your unhappiness - "Sorry To Myself" (Feast On Scraps)

Are you still mad? - "Are You Still Mad?" (Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie)

The Calgary Herald further reported that both men were using amphetamines and/or methamphetamines, so that makes absolute sense. Still no word on which of Morissette's songs activated Casey's violent rage.
