What’s an easy way to become a one-hit wonder? Write a catchy song and throw in a short rap calling out some popular rock stars. The New Radicals’ 1998 single “You Get What You Give” included these lyrics from singer Gregg Alexander: “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.” The song was a smash hit. Predictably, Courtney Love issued an angry, incoherent response, while Marilyn Manson expressed his annoyance at being mentioned in connection with Love. Alexander later apologized to Beck and collaborated with Hanson.
