** 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.

* BlackComedy[=/=]LyricalDissonance: "I Hope I Didn't Just Give Away The Ending," a bright, spirited power ballad about doing porno films for coke and overdosing. ** BreakingTheFourthWall: A particular gem from the same song: --->"By the way this girl was sexy and she would touch you --->That may not be true, but I said it so you'd feel involved with the song!"

** The two B-Sides "To Think I Thought" and "The Decency League", though "To Think I Thought" is on the Japanese version of the album.

** The two B-Sides "To Think I Thought" and "The Decency League", though "To Think I Thought" is on the Japanese version of the album.* TheNineties

* OneHitWonder: To extreme proportions - the band only lasted long enough to release two singles: one ("You Get What You Give") was the hit and the other ("Someday We'll Know") wasn't given a fair shake due to being overshadowed by the band's breakup. Today, most people are only familiar with the former.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Alexander previously mentioned that the songs "Life Is A Rollercoaster" and "Lovin' Each Day" were supposed to be the lead singles on the second (never made) New Radicals album, before he gave them to RonanKeating . Admittedly, they were huge hits. ** The same goes for any song where Alexander gives the song to another artist. He leaves his mark on all of them, but nobody can sing them better than him. His most obvious ones, aside from the Ronan Keating examples, were Murder On The Dancefloor (by SophieEllisBextor) and Inner Smile (by Texas), the latter which he did leak a demo of him singing. Fans naturally felt this way about the Begin Again soundtrack, which had a whole album's worth of new Gregg Alexander songs on it (plus two he didn't write), including four that he sings himself (for the first time in years). *** Danielle Brisebois' second solo album Portable Life seemed all set to be a big hit in 1999, but was cancelled after promo CDs were released. The album was briefly made for official download in 2008 before disappearing.

New Radicals ** The two B-Sides "To Think I Thought" and "The Decency League", though "To Think I Thought" is on the Japanese version of the album. ** There are a whole load of these actually. Alexander was recording demos from 1995 to 1998, when the album was made. Some of them have leaked online, some of which were a OneHitWonder 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 given to other constant member was former ''AllInTheFamily'' actress Danielle Brisebois, who played percussion (and occasionally, keyboards) artists, and sang backing vocals. some of which weren't.

New Radicals were * NotChristianRock: They come close in "Jehovah Made This Whole Joint For You" and "Flowers" ("As real as our god, who has spoken, on how we can fly"), which both seem like attempts to convert a OneHitWonder American pop-rock band from TheNineties. Their [[IAmTheBand sole permanent member]] was multi-instrumentalist drug addicted girl to christianity. It's safe to say Gregg Alexander, who wrote was not serious about it - he was brought up a Jehovah's witness 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. hated it.

* PerishingAltRockVoice: Gregg had his moments.

** The lyrics in the liner notes for the title track "Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too" are completely different than the actual song on the album. The original lyrics, which are all a giant TakeThat at society, end with "So hip, so young, so full of shit. The studio told us to shut up and write another hit."
