Alright, I will state that I was curious about this band about four years ago. I thought to myself: "Good Charlotte can't be that bad if they have so many 'hardcore' fans that go everywhere, buy everything and speak anything that is to do with Good Charlotte." Man, was I wrong. Good Charlotte sucks. They're basically a boy band that wears black clothes and wears eyeliner. Their music sounds like sped up emo music. You could describe their music as "emo with estrogen". MTV markets them to the teenybopper crowd. How so many young, impressionable kids can get suckered hook, line, and sinker into ANY of the garbage that this pathetic excuse of a band dumps onto them is beyond me. They definitely appeal to 12 year old kids, who have such a horrible life because they can't go to the mall and buy new clothes or get a new video game.

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"

Ugh.

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
Good Charlotte is the worst crap I've ever heard.

1. A band that performs deranged crap, overplayed by the media.
2. Group who kisses MTV's butt.
3. Responsible for lame songs with lame lyrics that sound as if they should be classified under "pop" instead of "alternative" (as they are on itunes) or "rock"...(God save us).
4. Band where the members wear makeup, causing one to ponder their sanity and sexuality.
5. A group where any definitions of them, if positive, are defensive. If they are so great why do you have to defend them? Or are you insecure because everyone questions your sanity for following the teen craze and conforming to bad music?
6. A band sometimes considered to fall under the genre of rock, which is the master of abominations.
Girl: Oh look, Good Charlotte is coming to concert...
Girl #2: GOOD CHARLOTTE IS AWESOME! LIKE, SHUTUP. JUST SHUTUP. THEY ARE GREAT. DON'T DISS THEM! THEY'RE SO "PUNK." I JUST LOVE HOW ANGSTY AND REBELIOUS THEY ARE!! OMG JUST STOP! THEY'RE AS COOL AS SIMPLE PLAN!!! OMG JUST OMG.
.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...

Well this is easy...

Shit. Pure, utter, gay shit. Only famous because MTV made them that way. One of clear channel's prized possessions.
Good Charlotte- I'd rather drink the fluid that comes out of a piece of elephant dung than listen to those cocks.
A rather pathetic band that no one really likes. See Simple Plan (my definition).
You're going to play Good Charlotte at your party? You loser!

Possible the worst band ever. They are poseurs and actually think they're punk. If y'all want to listen to some real punk, go check out the Pistols or Sublime. Good Charlotte is pop, pop rock at the most. All the members of the band are fugly assholes. Especially Joel, who called himself "Kid Vicious" - like Sid Vicious, the godfather of punk.

And their music sucks ass! If you stop and listen to the music, the main message of it is to not conform. But that's exactly what they're doing! They try so hard to be punk they forget to be themselves.
Guy 1: "God, have you heard Good Charlotte's new single?"
Guy 2: "Yeah, it sucks ass. I wish MTV would stop paying that shit."

Poseur Girl: "OMG! GC is like, so hawt! They're like soooo punk rawk!"
Other Girl: "God, get a life, you loser. Listen to some decent music."

a group of young men who play pop music under the beleif that they are "Punx rawx". fans are usually under the belief that they too along with good charlotte are "punx rawx", and shop at hot topic whenever possible. also see poser or wannabe
"punx": i listen to good charlotte ALL the time, unless of course im listening to mxpx or rancid, i dont understand any of the other two bands lyrics but punks listen to them so i guess i should to.
sane person: ur a fucking retard you know that?
"punx": DONT JUDGE ME!!!!11111oneoneone UR GAY!!!!!
sane person: riight *rolls eyes*
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.
