When good Charlotte started they had one honest purpose, to get out of that horrid Maryland house and do so in the honor of their idols before them.
They started very small playing local gigs, but by 2000 the first CD was out and making impressions on poppunk lovers.
The sound Good Charlotte created on the Self Title album was a loud fun crazy band making music simply for the fans & the love they shared of music.
the songs were captivating and everyone who knew them sang them everywhere they were, these were the first, the real, the true fans.
Everyone remembers those first words on the CD,
“yea this song is dedicated to every kid who ever got picked last in gym class”
they were hope for kids everywhere.
Two years later and with a new drummer, it was time for the second CD, “Young and Hopeless”
a title sarcastically based on a soap opera show as just another fuck you to the world that had given them such a hard time.
By CD two Good charlotte had their name out there, they were still reveling in being discovered by many more fans when they started mixing things up by appearing on MTV.
Appearing on MTV however did them more bad then they would ever know, one performance on MTV and they were hooked.
The teenies soon saw this duo and were instantly sure this was the next banwagon to jump on.
Soon the world was overtaken by girls screaming “will you marry me joel” from everywhere proving the new breed of fans was already starting.
CD two was a very different sound than CD one, with much deeper songs but with the same “its okay to be uncool” vibe that everyone loved about them.
However by CD three Good Charlotte had reached a level of disappointment in real fans.
CD three was majorly based around lead singer Joel Madden’s inner battle with self rage and his “incessant anger towards the world”
At this point those kids whom the first CD were dedicated to, were all fading away fast.
Soon enough Joel made a further mistake by deciding to keep secret then announce his illegal relationship with one of teenies fakest gods, Hilary Duff
At this point all seems lost for Good Charlotte
This band is still popular despite the loss of most real or true fans, however they still have fans to play for so they still play.
Good Charlotte is not the band they started as, nor the band that the original fans looked up to as those who showed us it was okay not be the stereotypical teenager in high school
Then shoved it back down fans throats by becoming the stereotypical pop punk band who’s egos soon block the whole reason they started the band
It is a bit ironic they would write a song, Lifestyles of the Rich and famous dissing everything they have become.
At one point in everyone’s life they liked/loved/heard/listened to/admired/thought well of the band Good Charlotte
Though the band may make you throw up in your mouth a little now
You must be truthful in admitting
they made their mark, I mean look we are talking about them now.
teenie girl 1: LIKE OMGEE im gonna marry joel from Good Charlotte and you can be my maid of honor!
teenie girl 2: OMG I WAS GOING TO MARRY HIM YOU FUCKING BITCH
