Ironic è una canzone incisa nel 1995 da Alanis Morissette, rilasciata come quarto singolo estratto da Jagged Little Pill, suo terzo album. Osannato da pubblico e critica negli Usa e Canada, ha riscosso minor successo negli paesi europei, dove comunque in qualche circostanza è riuscito a piazzarsi in Top10.
Nel 1996 il videoclip ha vinto tre Mtv Video Awards, per “miglior video di artista femminile”, “miglior nuovo artista” e “miglior editing”.
Il testo invece è stato molto spesso accusato di mancanza di ironia, contrariamente a quanto da titolo l’autrice avrebbe voluto far intendere.
