The Young and the Hopeless (2002)

Details Release Date: Oct 01, 2002; Lead Performance: Good Charlotte; Genres: Pop, Rock

These 14 tidily produced songs not only sound a lot like each other, they also resemble ones by someone else -- namely, blink-182. And that band's tunes derive from elsewhere still. Light refracted through this many pop-punk prisms can be rather dim. That said, teens hungry for brattily belted expressions of alienation will embrace this Maryland quintet, which features the twin brothers who host MTV's All Things Rock.
