Good Charlotte - Their Start

In 1995, brothers Joel and Benji Madden went to their first concert - the Beastie Boys' Ill Communication Tour. They were so psyched by the show, they formed Good Charlotte two weeks later with their high school buddy Paul Thomas . In 1998, Good Charlotte moved to Annapolis, Maryland to get in on the booming music scene. The band worked low paying jobs to make rent while they played bars, clubs and parties. Guitarist Billy Martin joined the Good Charlotte line-up and record labels started to take notice. Good Charlotte went on to sign with Epic Records and released their first full-length album in 2000.

Good Charlotte - Big Break

MTV recruited Joel and Benji Madden to host the show All Things Rock as VJs, giving the band a lot of exposure before their second CD, Young and the Hopeless was released. Good Charlotte shot to stardom with hits off that disc like The Little Things and Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous. Following the massive success of Young and the Hopeless, Good Charlotte released The Chronicles of Life and Death in 2004 and Good Morning Revival in 2007.
