Good Charlotte

Good Charlotte

Daylight/Epic

Good Charlotte is one of those bands that are good, but you just kind of wonder how they got signed to a big label. They are poppy as hell, they are fun to listen to, but you can tell from a label’s standpoint that they just aren’t going to sell. The lyrics are very simplistic, and the music isn’t much more complicated. These guys remind me of a mix of Blink-182 and Zebrahead (a feel-good crossover band from California). Good party music, good music to listen to on a gray day when you want to feel better, but besides that, I don’t get much out of Good Charlotte.
