SIOUX CITY | Sioux City has a big night in concerts Saturday, when events by Alanis Morissette and Toby Keith overlap that evening.

Morissette will have an outdoor concert at the Battery Park of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City, while Keith will be a few blocks east downtown at the Tyson Events Center.

The two singers have pretty divergent fan bases, given their differing music niches. Morissette has the longer career in the public eye, jumping to mid-1990s acclaim with the release of the top-selling "Jagged Little Pill" album.

Morissette rocked hard with "You Oughta Know" and the lyrics are blistering, endearing herself to people who liked the confessional style of that and other songs. (Of course she also got blasted for giving examples that weren't irony, but rather coincidences, in "Ironic.")

Keith also got started in the 1990s, but fame followed a few years later in country music. He blew onto the music scene in 2002 with "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)," a response to the 9-11 terror attacks.

The two have released several albums, and their lyrical fare isn't usually the same. They have differing ways of writing about love or a break-up or drinking.

Take the quiz below, who sang the lyrics, Alanis or Toby?
