About The Young and the Hopeless

The Young and the Hopeless is the second studio album by American rock band Good Charlotte. Following the release of their self-titled debut album (2000), the band went through three drummers. During this period, they met producer Eric Valentine and engaged him for their next album. Sessions lasted from February to May 2002; Josh Freese of the Vandals served as a session drummer. Almost all of the songs on the album were written by Benji and Joel Madden but two tracks were co-written with Valentine and Goldfinger frontman John Feldmann. During their appearance on the 2002 Warped Tour, the band were introduced to drummer Chris Wilson, who joined soon afterwards. A music video was produced for "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous" in July 2002 and the song was released as a single in September the same year. On October 1, 2002, The Young and the Hopeless was released by Epic and Daylight Records. Later that month, the band supported No Doubt before embarking on their own headlining US tour. A music video for "The Anthem" premiered in January 2003 and tours of Japan and Europe followed the same month. "The Anthem" was released as a single in February, which was preceded by an Australian and New Zealand tour in March. While in New Zealand, Good Charlotte filmed a music video for "Girls & Boys". The group co-headlined the Honda Civic Tour with New Found Glory between April and June. "Girls & Boys" was released as a single in July. From September to November, the band embarked on a headlining US arena tour, during which they made music videos for "Hold On" and "The Young & the Hopeless", which were released as a joint single in January 2004.
