3. "Hand in My Pocket" is not angry. It's mature.
"Jagged Little Pill" is remembered (or at least written about) as an "angry" album, but so much of it is an exercise in internal peacekeeping. "Hand in My Pocket" is not an impulsive response to a strayed boyfriend or teenage nuisance; it's about a young adult coping with maturity by realizing what she's known all along. The song's yin/yang verses ("I'm green but I'm wise / I'm hard but I'm friendly, baby") are empowering because they embrace the good and bad, her admirable traits and her flaws. It's a prayer about self-acceptance, and the sound of that harmonica at song's end is a languid "amen."
