They are an amazing band, and truly have changed my life. I will admit that I found them because of MTV - only because I was flipping through channels; I was nine years old at the time, and didn't even know what MTV was - so the first CD of theirs that I bought was The Young and the Hopeless, but that does not make me any less of a fan than the people who have loved them from the beginning.
And yes, I may only be thirteen, but that doesn't mean that I go around message boards proclaiming that "GC roxxorz!!11!" or whatever the hell most "teeny boppers" say.
Good Charlotte is a damned good band. Please stop bashing them.
Person Two: Yeah, I've been a fan for a long time now!
preppy chick: OMG THE SINGER IS SO HOT AND THEY ARE HECKA PUNK SO I WEAR CONVERSE NOW CUZ IM HECKA PUNK!! OMG!!!
(interested person runs away in fear)
They are a whiny band that love to sing about how "horrible" and "tragic" their life is, meanwhile they are sitting in cash in their mansions. No one cares except for their legions of self-pitying fans who feel they can truly connect with GC's "deep" and "inspiring" so-called "music". They even have whiny ballads that sound like the rest of the "pop-punk" and "emo" genres at the moment. Yeah, GC is fuelled by teen angst and armed with extremely bad talent. I'm sorry kiddies but Good Charlotte is nothing more than pop. I'm 16 & I'm already getting tired of the new music because it is getting horrible & more horrible. It's a manufactured popularity contest now. With their mediocre cliched song lyrics, Good Charlotte are 100% worshipped by their demographic, pre-teen and teenage preppy girls (and flamer guys.) This group of pop icons do nothing more than create crappy music (which is charged to audiences at well over $50 per ticket) and find themselves on MTV acting like jackasses every chance they aquire for the pleasure of their braindead viewers.
Their fanbase consists of 12 year olds that think they know all about music, therefore claim that they have the right to say that "GC" are musical gods or are the "best punk rawk band eva!111!1!", while talented bands like The Beatles and Pink Floyd to them are "old" and "horrible". These 12 year olds can usually be found online, usually on message boards, with usernames like "XxGCIsDaBestPunkBandEvarxX" and "trU3_pUnk_raWk3r"
Teenybopper talking to herself: "Oh my gaaaawd. I hate my liiiife. I can relate to these guys sooooo much because nobody listens to me and everyone hates meee"
In the end, I recommend the following punk rock albums to those who have been victimized by Good Charlotte:
Raw Power - Iggy and the Stooges
Ramones - The Ramones
London Calling - The Clash
Sane person: I thought you just said you didnt want to be just like everyone else.
Comment submitted with request to Delete: "i think this definition along with most of these should be deleted because if these people really like good charlotte in the first place, they wouldn't have stopped liking them just because other people started liking them. These idiots are just jealous because these guys are living their dream and the people complaining about them."
