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.

A band that isn't full of posers. The band good charlotte the twins of Benji and Jule and Billy, Paul, and Dean. They aren't posers. Emotional is a real song about the Maden brother's father that left them and they're mom and sister. They are real. I love them I've been listening to them since I was 6 years old. Hold on is the best song about why you shouldn't comunit suicide. They talk bout real music. Don't bash on them!
Guy: Hey what music are you listening to?
Me: Good Charlotte
Guy: ohh...they are good whats this song
Me: Hold on. I love this song so much!

a band from my hometown (Waldorf)/Joel was a good person and used to go out with my best friends sister until he sold out for Hilary Duff, they HAD good music when the lived here but now they suck.
Good Charlotte was awsome when they played at MBP in their hometown, but now theyre just sell outs.

A good band that is not neccessarily meant only for 13 year olds. It is good and despite trevor lancasters opinion other peoples taste isnt always bad.
Trevor lancaster: Good Charlotte r 4 14 yaer olds.

Erik: I, long with others, believe that they are a unique band that is not only for younger audience.

Jess: Good Charlotte are so sexy!
Caz: Hallucinating again.... *Whacks her over the head with the phone book*

So I've been reading what people have to say about this band on here while randomly searching about and I just have to say are you people kidding me? It's music get over it, you don't have to like them, I used to like them but my tastes changed but that doesn't mean they suck. I mean honestly "posers"? What are you a bunch of idiotic children? Really? It's freaking music, people like all sorts of music. Just because you don't like them or the genre does not mean they're bad.

Grow up, people like what they like, get over it. And PLEASE stop using the word poser. It makes you all look like moronic children. I have the feeling most of you actually are children. Music is music, enjoy what you like, leave other people to enjoy what they like. Damn.
"I like Good Charlotte."

"Well I'm glad you like them."

Seriously people get over yourselves.

it's just a band that plays pop rock... people, get over it. why do you care so much about a band who you say suck? so what if they are on mtv and in hot topic? you say you dont watch mtv and you dont shop at hot topic(cause too many "preppy" kids and "poseurs" watch and shop there), so it's not supposed to bother you right? i just think you are kids who need to get a life...so what if it's not your type of music, it doesnt mean it sucks...ever heard of beauty is in the eye of the beholder? same thing goes for music.

you guys are sooo immature....grow up
other bands like good charlotte include:
simple plan
new found glory
fall out boy
my chemical romance
and many others....
