Top 10 Good Charlotte Songs

The Top Ten

1 The Anthem

Oh man I love this song.. Just so aggressive.. Really speaks my heart out!

Any person out there would be an immediate GC fan once they hear this

I promised to myself that I would hear this song every single day years ago, and so I'm doing, this is the greatest GC song and I think It's gonna be my favourite song till the day I die

I don't ever wanna be you don't wanna be just like you well what I'm saying is this is the anthem throw all your hands up youuu don't wanna be you!

2 The River

When I first heard this song I automatically loved it. A few years later I found the best band ever Avenged Sevenfold. I heard this song again and realized who was in the song. I kept listening to it and started to relate to the lyrics. The next day I got it on my ipod and it has become one of my favorite songs ever. Long live THE RIVER!

very very very good song.
on my oown...

Amazing song. Both Synyster Gates and M Shadows were Awesome. This is a song you'll never get over.

The vocals just blend in so nicely with the instruments

3 Girls & Boys

This song is SO catchy! The lyrics are fun and pretty true, and this is just a really awesome catchy song! I could just sing it all day

I love this song so much because its really awesome, a lot better than what they are doing these days - decorulez97

This is the only song I like from this band, and to be fair they used to be quite good back in the day. This song still stands as one of my favourite Pop Punk songs of all time. It's like an anthem of the genre. Should be top of this list with like 30 percent of the votes.

I don't understand how is this in the third place. It's not that good at all!
I mean, it's nice, but not #3. This is so unfair, there are songs down here that deserve this place more than this song. Sorry for being honest. - psycho-

4 Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous

The top 3 should include the anthem, this one and the story of my old man. All three of them have good lyrics and good music.

Best song, that beaat! : )
You really can't go past it! Plus it really says something with meaning, which is always a plus to awesome songs (;

This song gets annoying after a while

5 I Just Wanna Live

nice catchy guitar tunes.. - Shynash21

According to me the best song ever by them. Really a cool song with some great tunes and lyrics which makes this song really one to make into the top of the list.

This song is AWESOME its just so unusual according to their other songs. Its genius.
The lyrics are so fast sung that its sometimes even hard to understand them. But when you get the song piece by piece it's the best feeling in the world!

just epic

9 Little Things

I've been listening to this band before they became popular and the older songs are much better -

EVERY normal person can relate to at least ONE part of this song

This is one of my absolute favourite! It deserves to be number one... It's one of their better songs and is heaps better than The Anthem and The River... Little Things can never be overplayed :D

This song reminds me of my years in the school yard. I bought Good Charlotte's first album and instantly fell in love with this song! I love the intro at the start and I love Benji's back in vocals and the video clip is awesome... I don't think I'll ever stop being a GC fan and it's all because of this song.

I love good charlotte and this song is so awesome! Its one of the absolute best. It should have been first though I like pretty much al good charlotte songs so darn much

ONLY 6! - Linc

13 Predictable

The guitar is amazing in this song. Everything about it is just incredible. The pauses, the tempo, everything is great sdfg

My personal favourite from The Chronicles Of Life And Death, very good song with good lyrics.

Just as The Chronicles of Life and Death sucks as an album, this song is the best thing they have ever done. - GreenDayFAN008

Best pop punk song ever let alone best good charlotte song. Put it in the top 10 no top 3. GC rock and this is there best work and should be at no1

15 Movin' On
16 Hold On

This is the best song and most Christian message ever.

17 The Young and the Hopeless

Amazing song. Any real GC fan would have voted for this. I think people forget what they are really about.

1 of the many songs which tells us what GC is all about. Their struggles and the way they overcome them... I've learned a lot from this particular song if theirs!

Oh men.. its should be number one
This song scream what teenage issue, lyric of entire pop punk songs

19 Life Can't Get Much Better

Just love this song. It's so different to all their others songs

It should be number 1

Their best songs

20 Festival Song
21 Keep Your Hands Off My Girl

It is really such a great song which consists of great instrumentation, great use of guitar and really makes this song one of the best one

Its a great song because of the guitar, its amazing

I'm very love this song... and I love Joel Madden voice, so cool man!


22 The Click

Should definitely be in the top 3! Old school GC. Songs like Misery, I don't wanna be in love and other emo songs shouldn't be anywhere near this. VOTE! - 8gerrard8

23 Last Night

Very good catchy lyrics. Unfortunately, I can't relate to it. This should at least be in the top five

Feel-good and catchy. It's a Good Charlotte song in and out, while still being new and fun.

Awesome song should be in top5

Very good... top 10!

24 The Chronicles of Life and Death

Why isn't it at least in the top 5!?


What the...? The best.

This is one of the best songs they ever made. <3
#32? You people do not have a great taste in music. - psycho-

25 Self Help
26 There She Goes

! This song is the best Good Charlotte song ever! It deserves number 1! Come on guys! Just listen to it and you'll understand!

27 Seasons
28 Life Changes
29 The Day that I Die

The chorus is just unbelieably catchy, and the lyrics are decently meaningful. Easily in my top 3, along with "The Chronicles of Life and Death" and "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. "

30 Misery

I'm sure everybody's had there quality time with misery. I'm also sure everybody's felt stalked by misery as well.

Why is this song not higher like it used to be?!
This is an amazing song with an awesome solo!
Come on Guys!
Good Charlotte's Fantastic though...

Not really a fan of this song, I think the top 3 should be the anthem then the river then keep your hands off my girl. Misery shouldn't even be in the top 10

This should be way higher! Love this song.

31 My Bloody Valentine

Great instrumentation, creepy sound, and gotta love those lyrics. Tearing his throat out, epic.

I absolutley love this song!

Stand out song. Shocked its no where near the top itsgone everything a genius rock song should have. If you haven't heard it play it please n get lost it ub

32 Victims of Love

Come on people, this song definitely deserve a place higher than this. It's such an awesome songs with very nice beats. And the vocals is as amazing as The River. I really liked this song, and I personally think that it's even better than most of their songs in the top 10.

How come this song has no votes. Shame on good charlotte fans out there. If you don't like this song stop listening to his music. I thought this song would be in the top 5.

This is ' awesome song man I don't know how this came so down... I love this song

33 40 oz. Dream
34 Emotionless

Come On... 25! You must be kidding me. This is perfect.. "The scars run deep inside my tattooed body there there are things I'd take to my grave" This is the best one... Should be number 1

Lyrics Are PuhhRfeCt!.. Love This Band..!.. Also Hold On Say Anything And World iS Black should Be further up..

Hits the feels every time

Best GC song ever made

35 Broken Hearts Parade

How is this not in the top three? I mean, come on! The tune, tone and lyrics just cry out! Definitely one of the best of GC.

GC's most under-rated song.

One of the best! THIS WAS MY FAVORITE SONG OFF THE ALBUM! IT SHOULD AT LEAST BE IN THE TOP TEN! LISTEN TO IT PEOPLE! ITS f****ng awesome! The brass band adds a nice touch to the song!

36 The World is Black

This song is really good. It's a lot better than most of their songs.

Best good Charlotte song ever.

The best after The river..

Give it a tryyy. Better than Girls & Boys - psycho-

37 1979

One of the best song ever, why is it all the way down here, it should be 2nd with Emotionless (which happens to be quite emotional) in first place!

Should be way Up there! ^
1979 is one of the greatest songs from GC. It's just a nice song with catchy lyrics and opens up on more of a back story for the Madden Brothers Parents who are occasionally mentioned in other Good Charlotte song

38 Counting the Days

A very good song by GC

39 Sex on the Radio

Why is this not in top 10 this song deserves way more than last night (my opinion)

40 All Black

This is one of charlotte's best songs... Really disappointed to see it sow low on ratings..

Captures the days when you feel like everythings against you perfectly

Really good song, easy top 10. Intense peice.

41 Break Apart Her Heart

This is really cool, all Good Morning Revival is very personal from Joel from his breakup and this song is no exception, in all the album, he's sad, but they make it awesome, Why? BECAUSE IT IS GOOD CHARLOTTE!

42 Right Where I Belong


1. Right where I belong
2. Boys and girls
3. We believe
4. Elevator
5. I don't wanna be in love

43 S.O.S.

One of their best songs ever

Should be in the top 5

44 Harlow's Song (Can't Dream Without You)
45 I Heard You
46 Ghost of You
47 Say Anything
48 The Truth

This is a really emotional and relatable song to anyone who's ever been hurt, and really does deserve to be higher on the list.

49 In This World (Murder)

I'm a big fan of Good Charlotte during Chronicles and before. And man, this certain song is deep and man is it beautiful. It's a perfect song to end a perfect album, the message saying that humans are born to be killers and will always be.

50 Where Would We Be Now

Awesome. It has a great melody, a great drum beat, great vocals, and lyrics. In my opinion, this song is about how a guy is telling his girlfriend that if they weren't together, they would be someplace else. They are happy that they are together! This song should be in the top ten, but at least it is in the top 50. Come on PEOPLE, IT IS AMAZINGG!

Beautiful song.
