New Radicals – You Get What You Give

Unlike a lot of one hit wonders who actually release a number of albums, the New Radicals only released one album: 1998’s Maybe You’ve Been Brainwashed Too. The first single released from the album is the reason why they are a one hit wonder. You Get What You Give was a huge hit worldwide. Especially because the celebrity bashing lyrics at the end of the song caused so much controversy:

Health insurance, rip-off lying
FDA, Big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they’re multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson,
Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson
You’re all fakes, run to your mansions
Come around, we’ll kick your ass in.

Aside from the controversy, the song is a great song, and it’s too bad they didn’t release any other albums. Enjoy!

  2. Michelle,

    You are correct in how you use the commas. However, the way I put it in the post is consistent with how the chorus is sung. But, you are correct, either way, it’s a great song. Thanks for visiting and commenting!
