How Joel Madden’s musical journey began

Once the twins had completed their graduation in 1997, it was their mother who gave them a pair of airline tickets to California, where all the good punk rock bands started; this was just the inspiration they needed, and once they returned, they were determined to create a rock band.

At 16, Joel and his twin, along with a friend, started their band, but it was short-lived, and the Maddens eventually had to recruit fellow high schoolers Paul Thomas, Aaron Escolopio, and Billy Martin.

They together formed the band Good Charlotte; they took the name from a children’s book ‘Good Charlotte: Girls of the Good Day Orphanage.’ Joel was the pop-punk band’s lead vocalist; Benji was on the guitar and sang backing vocals.
