2002 was a breakout year for pop-punk. The lingering solemnity of the events of 9/11 from the previous year was lessened when a new wave of young talent took our minds off of the tragedy of that senseless event and onto some great new music. Probably the biggest breakout success story of the year was the debut of a previously unknown 17-year-old from Napanee, Ontario, Canada, one Avril Lavigne, who, while not technically punk in musical form, certainly was in spirit. Canada actually was the then-hot spot of the pop-punk sound's global scene, with Montreal's Simple Plan also debuting the same year and Toronto's Sum 41 having broken through the previous year.
Shift south of the border to Washington, D.C., once the absolute center of the burgeoning hardcore/punk scene of the early '80s, second only to southern California in number of bands coming out at the time. A little way's outside of the city lies the modest-sized working class suburb of Waldorf, Maryland. There you...
I love this cd, I have ever since I first received it as a gift over 10 years ago. Good Charlotte is such a great group and funny guys! This CD is one for any occasion, just have it playing in the background as mood music! Examples:
Life Styles, Of The Rich and The Famous: Great for breaking the ice when meeting your new neighbors who just moved from Beverly Hills! Bloody Valentine: PERFECT for scaring off anyone who may be getting too close to your guy/gal Hold On: This is a great jam for when you're feeling down in the dumps and that kitchen knife is all too appealing.
But seriously, Good Charlotte, is a great band and this CD NEVER disappoints!
I noticed a few reviews that referred to this band as "posers." Maybe if understood what the word means I could apply it to this band. It seems to refer to their not being "punk" enough. Being a long-ago Ramones fan, I refuse to put this band up against them and judge them in that fashion. Who can compare to the Ramones??? Give me a break. I will agree that this band looks more punk than they sound but that should not cause you to automatically dismiss them as "posers." LISTEN to the music and judge it on how it makes you feel, because, to me, that's what music is all about! Does the band believe in what they are singing? Does that feeling come across to the listener? In my humble opinion.... YES!!!!! I have just recently began delving into the "new" music which I gave up on long ago as self-serving whiners from the suburbs acting like life sucked and we should all die because it was so pointless. It was very depressing and monotonous and...
