Just when pop punk seems to have left it's former glory days, Good Charlotte comes out with their sophomore album, The Young and the Hopeless. Their hair might be a little more gravity defying, they might have more piercings, and they might have lost their old drummer, but they do show a little more insight with their lyrics.

Highlights on The Young and the Hopeless include "The Anthem", which deals with being institutionalized in high school (almost a continuation of "Little Things"), "My Bloody Valentine", a twisted love song about a guy who murders the his true love's boyfriend, "Movin' On", which sounds more like it belongs on their self-titled album, and the title track "The Young and the Hopeless". An honorable mention is "The Day That I Die", which sounds like a country ballad at first, but then it moves on into imitating Social Distortion's style.

Good Charlotte tries enough new ideas to keep things interesting, while still remaining true to the sound of their first album without getting boring and repetitive. Fans will still remain fans (hopefully) and the people who hate them will, well, still hate them. I don't expect punk elitists to change anytime soon and realize that this is a good album.

This album is so much better than White Crosses!

ROCKon_and_F-CKoff (April 26, 2007)

Ehh.... I thought SOME songs were OK.... not the album as a whole though. I mean, if YOU like it, I don't care, but personally, only like two songs were good in my opinion.

rejectedbyrequest (March 3, 2007)

I laughed when I heard people considered this music. I also laugh at the fact that alot of the people who are GC fans and are bashing all the people who hate them posted anonymously so they could avoid the backlash. Hypocrital idiots. GC, please just..go..die, for the good of man kind.

Thane (August 14, 2005)

Better then the last piece of crap but not much.... But it is an improvement....Still they sound like a hundred other Bands of so what‚??s the point of having them in your CD collection? There‚??s not. The fact that you can say that imitating bands music is just fine kind of got on my nerves. Nothing original here just more of your mediocre pop punk fare....3 out of 10

listen everyone is open for their own opinions but to say that they suck when you havnt listened to the cd is absurd. you can like what you like and if you dont like it then there isnt any reason for comment. people may relate to their music, share the same experiences and shit like that so if they want to like them than thats cool. if you think that they suck thats cool too, but there isnt any need to tell them to die. as for them being marketed and so-called selling out, you put a big fat check infront of me and i guess im gonna do the same thing and i can almost guarentee that everyone of you would do the same thing. if you say you wouldnt then you are either lying or are going to be living in regret for most of your life while you are working your 9-5 desk job.

OH MY MOON-PIES!!! This is sooo brutal I'm going to write the rest of my feeble attempt to describe this record's "sheer-brilliance" in all caps.

If "Now! 12" Left you hankering for that "chugga-chugga" you so desperately desire then, baby, you're prayers have just been answered by this hunk of "laser-hugging" plastic. Enough breakdowns to rip Hartford to shreds. Ear-splintering gang-vocals that urge - no - grab you by your lethargic, suburbanite anus and throw you headfirst into some righteous head-bopping and hip shaking. This disc is the bible of everything that is good in modern music. A big "middle-finger" to an evil record industry that sends out watered down clones to mimic the best that Fatwreckchords has to offer.

Just grab the keys to your mothers minivan, order out at McDonalds, zip those hoodies up, and start kicking some faces.

Oh yeah!

"They also host a show that plays Nickleback and Default.....Martha Stewart is more punk than these guys."

just to comment on that, benji and joel hate nickleback, i saw them say something like "if they make us play nickelback, we'll find a way to relate it to NOFX" once.. do you think they enjoy being grouped with pop music? I'm not saying good charlotte is punk, or that the yound and the hopeless is a particullary punk album, but i think most people can agree that gc is more punk that avril lavigne.. not that that means much, which is the point

I'm posting under the gc alblum reviews with a '1' to try to hint all of the persuaded young kids that Good Charlotte is indeed shit, pure shit at that. Thanks.. now... ctrl .. c and off to the other review. Thanks for reading guys!

since the reviewer gave this one an 8... i'm going to say.. .. FUCK YOU. I know i'll get flamed for it, fuck I never even read his review. But honestly, I don't give a shit. Any Good Charlotte which recieves a high score on a 'punk rock' site is dirt. Or something.. im tired. Later.

yah i just saw some dick head say "oh if they sucked howd they make it to #1 on TRL?" that really pisses me off becuz halfway intelligent people know that they are marketed on TRL so people like you can buy there little wristbands and hats and Joel and Benji fucking barbie dolls our whatever they have out there, but thats the reason they are on there so u vote for them they get money and then they keep it to themselves and say "Hey look at those fucks giving us money all though we suck" they are exactly like Rap artists in every way only they play POP.

hey dude, don't be an asshole... if you are asking what's so great about the guys in the band, how the fuck can you be saying how much they suck? you can't just dismiss stuff because thirteen year old girls like them and shit... that's really discriminating and really sad... try putting in your energy into something more productive than being negative all the time... you have your opinion and i respect that... just don't be an asshole dude... i respect whatever you choose to listen to... i don't really care (until you start being an asshole about it)... oh... i agree with with the dude that said that there are a few good songs on the album... i like it for the most part, but there are some that i don't really like... whatever

Good Charlotte sucks cock, half the people at Warped Tour were there for GC and come people left right after GC was done. What's so great about those stupid twins, all they do is jump around on stage. Why don't you stupid ignorant 13 year old girls go back and listen to your Boxcar Racer.

StarrBlue (October 17, 2002)

i dunno how into the whole pop punk thing i am, but i dunno Good Charlotte doesn't annoy me as much as other bands. I used to like them like 2 years ago and when i heard they were coming out with a new CD i was curious and bought it. besides the REALLY annoy songs like "boys and girls" and "the day that i die" its a pretty nice collection of them copying other bands. I mean the song "hold on" could definitly be a Finch song while the opening of "my old man" is really Blink 182 and then turns into a more MxPx song. and the last song "moving on" the first like 10 seconds i swear are from and old Smashing Pumpkins song. but whatever its not horrible and there are a few gems on the album.

Anonymous (October 17, 2002)

some bitch down there just said "if they suck, then how did they make it to TRL?" what the FUCK??? are you kidding me? or was that just a joke post? You don't need to be a genious to know that anyone band or group on TRL is MARKETABLE, which by the way is a lot different than having talent. TRL caters to little shitheads like you so go on and cheer for Carson Daily. YAY!! AHHH TRL!!

Oh shut up you fool. I've heard this whinney album and it sucks the ass big time- zero originality, zero creativity. It doesn't matter if it's punk or not- I like all kinds of music, but this just reeks!

Anonymous (October 16, 2002)

hey everyone... i can't believe that some people would actually judge a band without even hearing the music or listening to their lyrics. to tell you the truth, that seems really sad and pathetic... just be a little open minded and look a little deeper than appearances.... you can't just dismiss a band because they got on trl, just like you can't say that a band is good just because they got on trl... you can't say that good charlotte is good just because benji is hot... i mean, c'mon... i am not saying that anyone is stupid or anything, everyone likes their own things for their own reasons. i have my own reasons for liking good charlotte.... first of all they are really nice guys, i met them at warped in tahoe, and i hadn't heard them before but they put on a good show... they make really good connection with people who go to the show.... i like most of their lyrics, i can identify with a lot of stuff they talk about... then i figure that gc is a good gateway band... for a lot of people it is difficult to get into punk.... (i'm from mexico)... and if you start liking good charlotte you might realize that there is sooo much stuff going around... so that's cool... i think that this album is really good... there are a couple of songs i don't like... but anyways.. thanks for reading...

Anonymous (October 16, 2002)

I don't care what any of you say but Benji is FUCKING SEXY. And if GC sucked all that bad then how could they have made it #1 on TRL. Answer that you fuckers, who have enough guts to get on here and trash Good Charlotte. They are going to be famous. You just wait and see.

I admit I couldn't define a 'real punk' but I am not naive enough to know that these guys are not punk at all. Its not the fact that they are on MTV, its more the fact that their record company wrote some of their songs for this album. They also host a show that plays Nickleback and Default.....Martha Stewart is more punk than these guys.

The kid below is good. If i was that old guy i would be pretty upset. especially seeing how right he is. And good charlotte. I went with some kids to warped that liked good charlotte a couple years ago. Didnt see them much. They spent the whole day at the nu-metal radio station booth. They missed good stuff like ALK3 and finch and lagwagon. They're loss. If kids want to subject themselves to that crap, more power to them.

Street punk - times have changed. You're old. You're being discarded. You're no revolutionary, you're a reactionary. You have become the opposite of everything you once purported to stand for.

You have no use. You're an obstacle to progress and you'll soon be extinct. You are already an unfortunate parody of what you once were.

Anonymous (October 14, 2002)

at least bands like NFG know they are for girls, dont pretend to be all punk and tough. GC thinks people actually buy the mohawk and how they are real "punk", not like the other bands that play their style. They should fuck off and die cause this band is really really shitty.

Interesting that you'd miss the warped tour because of one band. Thats why there's more than 1 stage you jackass!! If you didnt want to watch GC you could go to another stage...worked great for me. Maybe you were just afraid of getting your ass kicked in the GC pit..because we all know how "Intense" they are...I hope you're picking up my sarcasm cuz I'm laying it on pretty thick.

PS. What's with people telling people not to label stuff? Making irrational judgements is wrong, but puting a label on something is a fact of life. I'm a sure alot of us have been through this scenario: I don't listen to much of anything on the radio, so when people ask me what style of music do I listen to? Hmmm...well, I don't know. Rock music? Then they are going to think I like Creed or some other radio made slop. Oops! that's a label too...Don't label me! WAAAAAAAHHHHH, fuck you.

Purposely misspelling words and using the word "gay" out of context makes you both hopeless *and* ignorant.

Shit like GC exists. Think about that for a second? Punk has been disgraced on ever level possible: skateboarders fucking up the scene with their baggy pot smoking ways, adding pop punk. Then emo walking around holding hands with pop punk, now flat out pop says it's part of punk too. What next, country folk trying to say it's punk and then people defend that it is? Oh wait, Avril Lavige does exist.

this didn't need to be reviewed once, let alone twice.
