Despite the piercings and spiky hairdos of Good Charlotte frontmen Joel and Benji Madden, the filth and the fury of punk are not in evidence on The Young and the Hopeless. Rather, Good Charlotte lean toward the sunny power pop favored by the lighter Huntingdon Beach, California, outfits. Nevertheless, with the title track and "The Anthem" ("I'm just a minor threat"), the band appeals directly to high-school outsiders. Relationship problems are delved into in "Wondering" and "Say Anything," and they even find space to explore comic horror with "My Bloody Valentine." So they're not as intense or enraged as the hardcore likes of Black Flag or even Linkin Park. But the undeniably strong melodies this bunch comes up with have plenty of appeal on their own terms. --Dominic Wills

Overall Good Charlotts's second album is their best. Even though it lacks a powerful single like Little Things the other songs make up for that. This will be one of your favorite albums.
"Say Anything"- Great, deep song about the awkwardness and sadness
of a loss- be it girlfriend, best friend, or anyone
"The Anthem"- Awesome, catchy song about not giving into trends
and just being yourself and having fun- the typical GC anthem
"The Young and The Hopeless"- Incredible, fast punk song... about
GCs struggles as a band and all the obstacles they've faced-
dont ever give up local bands
"Hold On"- Moving song by Joel and Benjis to their fans who can
identify with family problems- things get better, just hold
And of course Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous!!!!! Buy this now!!!!!!
