 Much of the media attention "You Get What You Give" received centered on the closing lyrics:
"Health insurance, rip-off lying
FDA, Big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Becka ndHanson,
Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes, run to your mansions
Come around, we'll kick your ass in".

According to Alexander, he had written this section for the song as a test; to see whether the media would focus on the important political issues of the first few lines, or the petty celebrity-dissing As he suspected, the music press raked considerable muck about the name-dropping and the rest of the song was glossed over entirely.

Marilyn Manson commented that he was "not mad he said he'd kick my ass, I just don't want to be used in the same sentence as Courtney Love.... I'll crack his [Alexander's] skull open if I see him."Beck reported that Alexander personally apologized for the line when they met each other by chance in a supermarket, claiming that it was never meant to be personal.Recently Alexander has been collaborating with Hanson who called him "a bit of a character, but a cool guy"
