A New Beginning- A really interesting way to start the record. The first time I heard it when my friend sent me a copy on the computer, I thought it was spooky. I like it though. They do it live for some reason, which doesn't make much sense to me because it has no words, but whatever. 4/5
The Anthem- One of my favorite songs by them. Great lyrics, upbeat, and it makes me laugh when Joel goes "Shake it three times you're playing with yourself again." Don't ask. But if you know anything about Joel and his crotch grabbing you might get it. 5/5
Lifestyles of the Rich and the Famous- I heard this song when they released it as their single and right before it was on MTV. It was good but then MTV killed it. Possibly my least favorite song by them. 3/5
Wondering- "This song is about Cashdogg!" I think this song is really good, I like the beat, I like the chorus, and I like the vocals. 5/5
Story of My Old Man- This song is another great one on the album. The chorus on this one is really good, the story it tells is good. It's kinda fast paced but not as fast paced as some others. I like it. 5/5
Girls & Boys- This is a really really different one for GC. It's kind of new wavey which I like, and it's funny as hell to picture them all in the 80s, but I feel like this song is kinda stupid. It's pretty good though. 4/5
My Bloody Valentine- This song is awesome. I love it. It scares the hell out of my mom. I heard this one in April when they did it live at Skate and Surf and thought it was great then.Read more ›
1. A New Beggining - A short instrumental, it has no lyrics, so -0/0
2. The Anthem - A powerful, pretty typical punk rock anthem about not conforming. Pretty good - 4/5
3. Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous - The single that's getting the airplay. Pretty eclectic, well-produced - 5/5
4. Wondering - A simple, cute song that Benji wrote about his dog, Ca$hdog. Fun, and really catchy chorus - 4/5
5. The Story of My Old Man - Fast, fun song, about one of the band's favorite topics, their dad who left them - 5/5
6. Girls & Boys - Probably my least favorite track. It's simple, but not outstanding, but still good - 3/5
7. My Bloody Valentine - Despite its pretty graphic subject matter, it's really well done and sweet - 5/5
8. Hold On - Definitely my favorite. Very gripping, touching, powerful ballad that EVERYONE can relate to - 5/5
9. Riot Girl - Cute, fun, fast song dedicated to all the girls who love Good Charlotte - 4/5
10. Say Anything - A semi-sad song that leaves you sympathizing with Joel the whole way through - 4/5
11. The Day that I Die - Another song about death. What brings it down is the fact that it's so melancholy - 4/5
12. The Young and the Hopeless - The title track, obviously. An honest and poignent declaration - 5/5
13. Emotionless - The much more meaningful "Dad" song. Very sad, makes you very sympathetic but still rocks - 5/5
14. Movin' On- A great way to end a great CD. Upbeat song about the future with positive vibes - 5/5
Overall, GC has come a very long, good way. You can tell how much they've been through on this CD, and it really makes you see just how much they've learned since the first CD and just how much they've grown musically. All their fans WON'T be disappointed!
That's not the point I'm trying to make. My point is that they're hypocrites expressing false empathy for the destitute youth of today.
Everyone knows the song "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous", right? The song that netted GC all their riches and fame?
Well, for those of you who might not know, Good Charlotte's message with that song was, essentially, that everyone with a recognizable name or any wealth at all should burn in hell. Ironically, Good Charlotte is now obsenely rich and famous. Anyone under the age of 18 knows their name, and they've sold millions of CDs. Suddenly, Good Charlotte's singing a completely different tune. Suddenly, the rich and famous aren't so bad, you know? Pfft... it's hilarious, if you think about it.
And to those of you who claim GC is nice "happy music" that cheers you up, maybe I can make their music permanently piss you off when I introduce this point. :D
Do you really think Good Charlotte has the authority to write a song like "Hold on", telling kids not to kill themselves? Quoting the song... "But we all bleed the same way as you do, We all have the same things to go through"
Meet Joey the Suicidal Child. His mom is dead, and his dad beats him without any good reason. He goes to a horrible public school. He watched three of his best friends be sprayed with bullets from an AK-47 in a school shooting, saw their bloodstained bodies collapse, dead before they hit the ground.Read more ›
