Good Charlotte desperately wants to be Green Day even though Green Day sucks too
This album is one of my fav pop punk albums period
Much better than their terribly mediocre debut, but admittedly this is still very whiny lyrically as well quite formulaic instrumentally too.

Favourite songs: The Young And Hopeless, The Anthem, Girls & Boys, Emotionless

Least faves: Wondering, Riot Girl, The Day That I Die
