Good Charlotte – The Young And The Hopeless

MTV show-hosting brothers Benji and Joel Everly are the driving force behind Good Charlotte’s second album. They co-wrote all 14 of these slick, punk-pop songs. Though, on occasion, they are Green Day-lite, there are enough solid rock moments to keep their youthful following happy.

First single, “Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous”, is a speedy thrash at celebrity-whingeing (“All they do is piss and moan inside Rolling Stone”), while sole ballad “Emotionless” really is quite lovely.
