Good Charlotte is:

Joel Madden(vocals)
Benji Madden(guitar/vocals)
Paul Thomas(bass)
Billy Martin(guitar)
Chris Wilson(drums)

Identical twins Benji(guitarist/singer) and Joel(lead singer) Madden were born March 11th, 1979. The two grew up with their mother, father, older brother Josh, and younger sister Sarah. The twins (who are Christian) grew up in a strict house hold. Their brother had introduced them to rock music, but in the beginning, their mother was very strict about 'punk' music and had restricted her children to Christian music. Once, after finding a poster of a punk band on their bedroom wall, Benji and Joel's mom quicky tore it down. But that didn't stop them... At the age of 16, their father walked out on Christmas eve, leaving the family deep in financial problems and homeless for a while. The family struggled with money and housing for quite a while. Their anger against their father inspired and encouraged the twins to start writing songs and making music. Benji learned guitar, and Joel went into vocals. After graduating from highschool, their mother presented two plane tickets to California to them as gifts. The two then set off to pursue their goals. Pretty soon, the twins were getting recognized and got friends Paul Thomas(bassist) and Billy Martin(guitarist) to join in. Once the band was complete, the foursome took the name 'Good Charlotte' from a children's book. Soon after, Good Charlotte was signed and they recorded the epic and last year recorded their second cd; the young and the hopeless. They have written songs about suicide('hold on'), being yourself and not giving a shit about what others say('the anthem'), relationships('boys and girls', 'my bloody valentine', and 'say anything'), and even one about Benji's dog (cashdogg) "wondering". They've created these songs with so much talent while adding a little humor into them and their music videos.

Good Charlotte currently have 3 albums.

If you didn't buy the cd 'The Young and The Hopeless', here's the letter that Benji wrote inside:
"so it's 2 am july 27 2002, and we're driving thru the middle of nowhere on our way to a show in chicago. i haven't showered in a week, i'm running on no sleep, i miss cashdogg and some kid at the show today asked me "why i even call myself punk". these may sound like complaints but actually i'm really happy. i am listening to this record, yea i'll admit it I listen to our records and i am thinking how crazy all this is. 3 years ago i was stockin shelves at target living on ramen noodles and crashing at Billy's house. now i'm on tour. 4 kids from nowhere. we made another record and i feel just as excited as i did the first time. i say this all the time, but i mean it, if this all stopped yesterday i would still feel like the luckiest guy alive. i remember going into my room after school writing letters to record labels saying "you can sign us now for cheaper" and sending out demos. i laugh about it now but back then i was so serious. you know we dreamed about this all day every day and i gotta say it feels just like we thought it would. our goals may have changed. i'll admit, it's not about being famous or making millions of dollars anymore. yeah, i used to day dream about that, being broke gets old quick, but now i have sorta seen how it all works and i don't want to be the biggest band in the world i want to make music with paul and billy and joel. that's all. i want to tour. i want to be good to my friends. i want to take care of my family. i want to meet kids at shows. that's real to me. i see some bands and i get frustrated for them. it's easy to get lost in the whirlwind of all of this but i realize we all have to learn on our own, we are still learning. we have made our share of mistakes. we have done some cheesy stuff. but it's good to look back and laugh at how young we were. i see a lot of bands worrying about credibility and all of that and i guess i have realized it only comes with time if we are still here in ten years maybe we will be credible. til then we just gotta do what we want to do, make music. tour. provide for our families. you know i used to fist fight every guy i came across that told me i wasn't punk. lars asked me one night "are you gonna fight the world?" he was right, i was pretty stupid. it made me realize we are what we are and no one can change that. i guess we have done a lot of growing up since the last record. we started this when we were 16. its the only thing i ever had. its probably the only thing i ever will have.. i just feel lucky. we are four kids in a rock band from waldorf. we're no better than any other band out there and we know it. so thanx for getting our record and being part of this. thanx for giving us a chance to do what we love. thanx for making this real.
see ya at the show

.Adjective to describe self-declared 'artists' that wrecked the miniute chance of decent prosperty they had by emoing their way to the dark side that is commercialism and materialism
GC: Lifestyles of the rich and the famous, they're always complaining

Me: Didn't you demand Mcdonalds delivered food to you because youre 'celebrities'?

GC: We're going to write a song about how ignorant you are

Me: fuckheads...

A once awesome band that got a lot of MD high school kids through some tough times only to sell their souls to the MTV devil, thus destroying the hope they had given to so many loyal fans. Now adored by hundreds of 12 year old girls who get insanely pissy whenever someone accuses GC of selling out and yet have never heard their first album and have no idea what the band used to be.
On the east coast we ride until the day we die...dirty liars.

A good band that has been given a bad stereotype. They're not emo, they're not wannabes, and they're not in in for the money (which you would know if you were broad minded enough to find out about them).
They make music, people who like their music listen to it, and people who don't try and find as many ways as possible to insult them. GET OVER YOURSELVES.
Maybe you like them, maybe not, but truth is they do not whine about their life sucking like some other bands, their music (whatever genre it is) appeals to loads of people, and in the end, they will probably have a lot more people that like them than you haters do.
person 1: "wow, have you heard Like It's Her birthday by Good Charlotte? It awesome!"
person 2: "you like Good Charlotte? OMG FREAK."

me: "shut up and get on with your life, cause guess what? NO ONE CARES, AND THEY'RE MORE SUCCESSFUL THAN YOU'LL EVER BE."

Started out as a typical pop-'punk' band, playing songs about girls and "not fitting in". Soon, however, they took a cue from MTV and mainstream society, and became the same as everyone else. You say "Don't bash them for living their dream." I'm not. I'm "bashing" (Or, as I call it, being realistic) them for completely selling out for MTV and mainstream society.
Eyeliner. Trendy clothing. Horrible, plastic, processed music.

First, Good Charlotte makes your typical pop-'punk' anthems.
Then, a diffrent style of music becomes popular, so they make that type instead.

how can you call these motherfuckers "punks" the only goddamn reason why they are even called "pop punk" is because they play insturments, if you gave their guitars bass and drums to the backstrret boys they would be called a fucking "pop punk band", and they would be the boy band. Same goes for fallout boy and simple plan....which by the way is a disgrace to canada
there are actual punk bands from canada such as D.O.A. and pantychrist....and so on...
as ed the sock said " their just the back street boys with eyeliner"!!!!!
little rich kids thinking their life sucks just because daddy won't let them have a porsh!!!! so they listen to good charlotte to feel rebeles
fuck the media and their lies
