Added DiffLines:

* LyricalDissonance: Most of the songs feature energetic, sunshine-y guitar and melodies, even when they're talking about social change, inability to cope with a break-up, or accidental overdoses that result in death. That said, "You Get What You Give," even with it's lyrics about mind-numbing celebrity culture distracting from real-world issues, is otherwise a straightforward AwardBaitSong, complete with lyrics about ThePowerOfFriendship.

* TakeThat: Alexander included two verses towards the end of "You Get What You Give", one criticising the FDA, health insurance providers and others, and the other just bashing various celebrities. By his own admission, it was [[SecretTestOfCharacter an experiment]] to see whether the media would focus on the political issues of the first lines or just the celebrity-bashing. Predictably enough, the media focused on the bashing and ignored the rest.

* IAmTheBandIAmTheBand: Half of the sources out there refer to the band as consisting of Gregg Alexander alone. The other half consider them to be the duo of Alexander and Danielle Brisebois backed by a series of studio collaborators, a la Music/SteelyDan.

'''New Radicals''' were an American pop-rock band from TheNineties. Their [[IAmTheBand sole permanent member]] was multi-instrumentalist Gregg Alexander, who wrote and produced all their songs. Their only other constant member was former ''AllInTheFamily'' actress Danielle Brisebois, who played percussion (and occasionally, keyboards) and sang backing vocals.

Alexander disbanded the group in mid-1999 out of fatigue with touring and the rock star life, declaring that he had "accomplished all of [his] goals". He returned to his previous job of writing and producing for other musicians. He later won a Grammy for writing Santana and Michelle Branch's "Game of Love."

Alexander disbanded the group in mid-1999 out of fatigue with touring and the rock star life, declaring that he had "accomplished all of [his] goals". This greatly affected the performance of second single "Someday We'll Know", which got some airplay (and versions from people such as Music/MandyMoore) but not enough for the band to be considered a two hit wonder. He returned to his previous job of writing and producing for other musicians. He later won a Grammy for writing Santana and Michelle Branch's "Game of Love."

They released one album, ''Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too'', in 1998. A pop-rock album drawing influences from various rock and {{Funk}}[=/=]{{Soul}} acts like Music/ToddRundgren, {{Prince}} and Music/TheRollingStones, ''Brainwashed'' was greeted with critical acclaim. It also provided the band with their only hit single, "You Get What You Give". It's one of those one hit wonders that everybody knows now.

** Whilst this is technically true of the NewRadicals, the only constant members were Gregg Alexander and Danielle Brisebois, and they wrote and recorded three other albums together, Gregg Alexander's Intoxifornication and Danielle Brisebois' two solo albums Arrive All Over You and Portable Life. Also, Gregg had an an album called Michigan Rain before Intoxifornication. The NewRadicals were definitely the most focused of all Gregg and Danielle's projects though.
