What Does Good Charlotte's 'Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous' Mean to Them Today?

When Good Charlotte scored their first big hit with the tongue-in-cheek single "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" in 2002, they were neither rich nor famous. Fast-forward to 2016 and it's a much different story. 

On the red carpet of the Alternative Press Music Awards, Fuse caught up with the band—who just released their sixth studio album Youth Authority last week—to talk about what their angsty, society-shaming songs mean to them today. Benji Madden explained:

"Songs like 'Lifestyles' and 'Girls & Boys,' where we were making our own little social commentary, I feel that never changes. You have those realizations as a young kid and you said it on record, but still none of us have really changed."

Adds brother Joel, "We still feel the same way."
