The coin of the rock realm in 2000 (or at least one of them) is slightly snotty pop-punk, delivered in a bratty sneer that's pure rock & roll, over a bed of chugging guitars and blitzkrieg drums. Good Charlotte fits this bill nicely, adding the pop niceties required to reach the mainstream. As the quintet's debut album shows, though, the brattiness is largely on the surface.
On the reggaefied "Waldorfworldwide", for example, the boys get downright open-hearted, expressing their desire to party without the threat of violence. The closing "Change" is practically a power ballad, with lush backdrop and gently swaying rhythm. These relatively subtle contrasts don't exactly make Good Charlotte eclectic, but they do give them enough variety to remain interesting for the length of this album.

Good Charlotte began when a motley crew led by Maryland punk rock twins Joel and Benji started making the local rounds with their music and building up a grass roots following. In due course they landed a major label deal, and their self-titled 2001 debut album made their blend of punk power and pop smarts a huge success. The next year's follow-up THE YOUNG AND THE HOPELESS picked up where its predecessor left off, bringing the band to even greater commercial heights.
