Review: Good Charlotte – The Young and the Hopeless
The sophomore effort from Good Charlotte was by far their most successful record, selling over 3.5 million copies in the United States alone. The Young and the Hopeless features plenty of crisp pop-punk production, courtesy of veteran hit-maker Eric Valentine, and the band spent nearly three months crafting the recordings. While many critics panned the new material, fans of pop-punk and fans of their earlier material were able to find plenty to enjoy on the album. The record rips into a introductory track called “A New Beginning” and the hard-nosed guitar parts in the instrumental song signaled a cosmic shift in the direction Good Charlotte were taking their sound. The leaning towards darker material in their songs showed that the band were not comfortable with simply re-hashing the same sound on every album or song, and it would open them up to several new artistic opportunities.Read More “Good Charlotte – The Young and the Hopeless”

Live Nation Buys Veeps
Live Nation has purchased the majority stake in live streaming platform Veeps, which was co-founded by Good Charlotte’s Madden brothers:
“The idea of working together through this partnership was already kind of a natural and organic thing that was always happening. We’ve worked so closely and over the last decade or so with Live Nation in so many different ways,” Veeps co-founder Joel Madden, also a founding member of pop punk band Good Charlotte, tells Rolling Stone. “Live Nation is genuinely interested in exploring how they approach livestreaming. And I think that they were open to a lot of things.”

Review: Good Charlotte – Good Charlotte
Flash back to the year 2000, and a group of awkward young 20-ish-year-olds were looking for their own voice in a crowded punk field. What made Good Charlotte so charming was their ability to speak to the misfit youth of America by connecting directly to the underdogs of the world. They made this clear on their first radio single, “Little Things” with the spoken introduction of, “This song is dedicated / To every kid who ever got picked last in gym class / To every kid who never had a date to no school dance.” The band made it clear that they were making this type of music for the outcasts of the world, and they had the musical chops to back up what they wanted to accomplish. It never came across as a “gimmick” or an act, and their authenticity is what led to a lot of their future success.Read More “Good Charlotte – Good Charlotte”
Joel Madden Talks With Forbes
Joel Madden of Good Charlotte talked with Forbes about life in quarantine:
I feel like the only message I have that matters right now is that we are really all in this together. The only thing we can do is hope for the best for one another, help each other when we can, take care of our families, and hang in there until we are on the other side of this. If we can all do our part and hopefully reach out to one another when we need support, I think when we get through this we are all stronger.

Joel Madden Talk With Kerrang
Joel Madden of Good Charlotte talked with Kerrang:
Good Charlotte have never compromised who we are. We’ve survived. It’s almost like the music business had all these big extinctions – like climate change or something – and we survived all those changeovers. To still be making the music that we’re making, and still be together over two decades later, and still love each other, is a huge accomplishment. It wasn’t always easy not knowing what the future held for us, when everyone’s telling you that, ‘It’s over,’ or, ‘Music’s changed now,’ or, ‘This doesn’t age well.’ But we stuck it out together, we followed our hearts, and we landed in a place where we’re happy to be. I once thought it was over, and it now feels like it’s only just getting started.
