This is the day where I get to talk about music, and recommend something to you, the reader. Well today I am talking about my favourite band, Good Charlotte.
I am obsessed with this band, and have been that way for the last 9 years of my life. It sounds like how people were like with boybands in the 90s, but trust me its not like that. I listen to other bands, but I always come back to GC.
Their music has guided me through some hard times in my life, and I find their lyrics to be very relateable. That’s where most bands fall down, whereas their songs may hold meaning for a specific time in your life and that’s it. Good Charlotte songs are just us meaningful now, as they were when I first heard them. But that could always be because my perception of music changed as i got older.
Another huge thing of this band, are the fans. The fans are pure awesome. I have talked about them before, but I love these guys so I’ll do it again. 😛 The Good Charlotte community is pretty awesome, which has been around for the last 7/8 years. The band actually cottoned onto this fact, a few years ago, and have been interacting with their fans through the net. The talk to fans through twitter, the chat and forums on their site, and also do video chats.
They show a real sennse of appreciating their fans, and this is something that not a lot of bands do. Other bands say, ‘we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the fans’, but you know they are just saying it, they don’t let the fans feel it. But Good Charlotte do, I’m sure if they could find away to personally thank every fan, they would do it in a heartbeat.
Now in 2010, 14 years since Good Charlotte was formed, the guys are releasing their 5th studio album, Cardiology. It is released on November the 2nd, and the whole community is buzzing. Not to mention, the band are getting ready for tours all over the world. This is the time to check out Good Charlotte and the GCFam, because it is a good place to be right now.
