The New Radicals

New Radicals (styled as Иew Radicals) were an American pop-rock band active in the late 1990s, centered on frontman Gregg Alexander, who wrote and produced all of their songs and was the sole constant member. They released one album, 1998’s Maybe You’ve Been Brainwashed Too, an alternative album heavily influenced by the rock and soul of the 1970s,[1] containing—among radio-friendly modern rock tracks and love songs—strong criticism of corporate America.

The band is best known for their debut single "You Get What You Give", which became a top 5 hit in the United Kingdom and whose lyrics, which insulted celebrities at the end of the song, provided a minor media spectacle.[4][5] Tired of touring and promotional interviews, Alexander disbanded the group in mid-1999 before the release of their second single, "Someday We’ll Know", to focus on writing and producing songs for other artists. As a result, "Someday We’ll Know" received little attention in most countries and the band is widely considered a one-hit wonder. "Someday We’ll Know" did however go on to be covered by Hall & Oates on their 2003 album Do It For Love.
