有關good charlotte 的問題

之前聽到人家談起good charlotte,只依稀知道他是個龐克樂團,而且有一首很有名的MV〝hold on〞想再進一步的知道他們的相關資料(例如:出道背景、得獎經歷或是對於他們的簡單介紹...)與hold on的歌詞背景意義或思想,因為要作為英文演講使用,所以希望提供的資料以英文為主,這樣在撰稿上也較為方便,希望知道的人,幫忙一下。不用長篇大論,很簡易的讓人迅速了解他們的資料就夠了,十五點奉送。

Update:

還需要We Believe與hold on的意義跟思想,麻煩了~~

    The East Coast post-grunge quartet Good Charlotte is just barely distinctive from the likes of corporate alternative rockers Blink-182 and Third Eye Blind, but the fresh five faces composing this quintet from Maryland first started off in 1996, practically shy of strumming a chord. Vocalist Joel Madden and his twin brother guitarist Benji, who never sang or played an instrument in their lives, were instantly inspired to form a band after seeing the Beastie Boys on their 1995 Ill Communication tour. They soon formed Good Charlotte with high school chums Paul (bass) and Aaron (drums), and Billy (guitar) was added later. They all had a passion for the energetic elements spawned from '70s punk rock, but also sentimental enough for killer ballads found in mainstream corporate rock. Quickly, the band made a name for themselves in and around the D.C. area, playing the WHFS annual rock show HFSFestival in 1998 and 1999. A year later, Good Charlotte issued their self-titled debut on Epic. The Madden brothers scored a gig as MTV VJ's and soon were all over the network's late night rock show All Things Rock. This promotion helped the band greatly, as they spent time behind the scenes writing songs for the new album. By the fall of 2002, Good Charlotte was ready to release The Young and the Hopeless. "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" and "Anthem" catapulted the band into the mainstream in 2003 and shared dates with New Found Glory for the third annual Civic Tour were equally successful. In 2004, the band returned with The Chronicles of Life and Death.

    Good Charlotte狂野夏洛特,

    90年初期之如Grunge樂的興起,而Punk樂的復甦,不僅成功的再次佔領主流市場,更開闢出另一條寬廣的宣洩途徑,並讓這股歡愉夠勁的強力節拍瀰漫在整個搖滾樂壇!其代表團Green Day.Offspring.Blink-182.Sum 41等,充滿活力的樂音鋪陳,簡單易記的三和絃論及滑順暢快的流行曲調,皆代表了70年末以降屬於新世紀年輕族群之新生代龐克樂章!跨入2000年,來自美國東岸馬里蘭州的熱血龐克團"Good Charlotte",將承襲此一血脈,直接有力,並大聲表達出他們的想法!

    主唱Joel及吉他手Benji Madden兄弟倆人,16歲時因為受到Beastie Boys(野獸男孩)演唱會的感昭,讓他們當下立志組團,並勤學樂器,偕同死黨貝斯手Paul.鼓手Aaron共同創作表演,一場以Acoustic方式演出的Show吸引住吉他手Billy的目光,隨即加入團中,Good Charlotte終告塵埃落定,進而啟程向音樂之旅邁進!首支Demo單曲"The Little Things",深受地區電台的歡迎,在眾DJ的推波助瀾下,Good Charlotte的名氣與日俱增,也順利的與Epic公司簽下一紙合約!2000年推出的首張同名專輯,由紅牌製作人Don Gilmore(Linkin Park.Pearl Jam)操刀,輯中道盡高中生涯之種種,宣染出一片年輕旺盛氣焰,並成為年輕學子瘋狂追逐的焦點!

      相隔兩年推出曾高居Billboard專輯榜及網路銷售榜第7名的位置,並衝破百萬銷售量的"Young And The Hopeless",從2002年到2003年5月入榜33周,仍入籍Top 40之林中!邀來新生代製作高手Eric Valentine(Queens Of The Stone Age.Joe Satriani.Smath Mouth)護盤,首波踩著Iggy Pop聲名狼藉之單曲『Lust For Life』主題概念的『Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous』 暢意強勢主攻作品,可是從2002年底一路翻紅攀升至2003年!相繼入榜創下佳績的『Anthem』,不僅感受到他們十足的爆發潛力,及狂噪不已的龐克搖滾力道外,更大聲吶喊出自我理想,反擊傳統教育包袱之觀點!延燒此魅力於『Wondering』.『The Story Of My Old Man』.『Riot Girl』等曲中,由平日發生在我們生活圈子中的事物,尋獲感同身受的表達!最為特別的抒情小品『Emotionless』,是寫給父親的一首感念之作!獨具個性的穿著與打扮,代言E世代年輕人獨特想法,狂野宣洩鏗強有力的龐克熱潮,Good Charlotte直率淺簡的酷味,將給予不間斷的異常亢奮!
