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"
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 good band that is unlucky enough to have a few fans that act like complete morons.
"omg good charlotte is the greatest band ever they are sooooo punk!!!"
"uh, no, they're not really. but they are a good band. please calm down..."
A pop rock band. Good Charlotte is NOT punk rock. They tend to contradict the ideals of the punk movement, actually, and have spawned a fanbase of teenagers who consider themselves 'different' and 'rebellious'.
This band sucks, and none of the members are hot or good-looking. They look like the majority of other pop rock bands out there.
Poseur #1: After I'm done cutting myself, want to go to Hot Topic and buy the new Good Charlotte t-shirt!?
Poseur #2: Sure!
POSEURS. the worst comercialized band in the history of ever.
good charlotte needs to spare us the pain of listening to them and break up.
Fuckin emo, lame ass, "thugs" who indoctrinate 12 year old girls to sell cds and whine and cry about how hard their lives are. They are inspiration to those people with no talent that want to be rich and idolized by 10 year olds.
Sane person- Good Charlotte fuckin sucks sonkey dick. They ehine and cry too much
12 year old brainwashed girl- No they are an inspiration. They helped get me through hard times by saying suicide is cool.So now I shop at Hot Topic and wear pants with holes and tears that cost 60 bucks!
a band that then majority of people writing the definitions for it like it because of their hot lead singer and stand up for them because they are so hot and a couple of hate letters might hurt the pussy's feelings
i dont like good charlottes music
are you kidding the lead singer is so hott
oh that has really changed my mind(fuck off)
Good Charlotte is a fuckin pouser band they should die
pouser band that should die for reals anyone that likes them should die too
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 Benji, 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 playing 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."
