Maybe he just loves Scandinavia - has he moved yet? Actually, I just think he's an evil liar. And a rapist, as we know!

I cant rember who posted this and I cant be bothered to find it, I think it was s8a h8a but it is pure genus:

Why do they write so many songs about their father when they dont even know him.

>Cause they want little kids (mainly preppy girls) to think they have had such a bad life because daddy walked out when they were 16 (you should be old enough to look after yoursleves) and buy their albulms, and 2 clothing labels, and calanders, and dolls (have they been realised yet?) and posters, and dvd, and watch their tv shows.ect ect.as that is the only bad thing that has happened they only have that to write about...

They probabely will turn emo because that is the 'new thing'.

>>By Riot Girl



Yay!Good comeback!(I think...:-P)

>>By kathy_moose



Yeah, I think I did say that. I was just looking from the point of view that I write songs based on true feelings in my head. They're still thinking about their dad after how many years? They need to get over it.

>>By Sk8a H8a



I dunno... shall I check it up? =P

I agree with Sk8a H8a... they need to get over it... how many years have they been without their dad? 9?

I've actually heard from somewhere that this new album isn't going to be about their dad in the same way as the other two... Joel wanted something new to sing about... that's what I've heard... it wouldn't supprise me if I have wrong... but I'm going yo be really annoyed if the whole next album is about their dad...

>>By Mekko



Yes, Joel wants something new to sing about, because he can't think of anything himself! They're just stretching what little material they have to the point where it's been overdone and everybody is fed up of it. Hold On was more popular because it was about sometihng different, but I'm still convinced they have no idea what it's like to be suicidal. Therefore, it's popular with other people who have no idea but they think they're depressed. I hate the whole depression thing. People who think they're depressed are ignorant and should appreciate that they're really lucky and real depression is so much worse. People who are depressed scare the Hell out of me. Can't we all just be happy?

>>By Flake 1.6



of course we all can be happy.... I know how it is to live near somebody that's depressed... my grandma is depressed... and I mean REALLY depressed... she needs help but the state refuses to give her... and I think that's bad....

and I've got some friends that cut them selves... they tell it to everybody they meet and that's really annoying because all they want is attention... and they think it's good attention when somebody gets to know about that they cut them selves... I think they need help with knowing other ways to get attention on...

>>By Mekko



Now I’m going to be that little GC fan that say that their songs helps me through life… well, not life, and not the whole day, but when I listened to GC’s song Hold On for some hour ago, I was like, ”Yeah… I’m going to be alright even if I don’t get in on the only place that I feel I belong..” because I’ve got to know that my grade in music and English isn’t going to be higher than they’ve been this term… and I hate it, because my teacher in music told me I only had to do one song (wonderwall by Oasis) to get a higher grade… she doesn’t give me higher grade even though I’ve done what she wanted me to, and even more… and in English I don’t get higher because of some not so good results in 8th grade, it was more than a damn year ago… she said no matter how much she wanted to give me higher grade she couldn’t… and I don’t blame her that much as I maybe would.. because my Swedish teacher has been with and decided it… I don’t like my world as it seems today… but I at least got a fair grade in German…

I’m just babbling as I always do when I want something to be said… and the thing, right now is that, GC’s songs may not makes a difference on a whole life, but for an hour or two, or maybe a day, their music can be really helpful…

I nearly start crying when I got to know that my grades in music and English isn’t going to be higher, because I’ve really worked hard on those subjects, you can’t imagine how hard, and no one would really understand how much it would mean to me to get a higher grade… my English teacher was really sorry because she really wanted me to get higher… she has always pushed my limits, she knows how much I can handle at the same time, she knows that I’m willing to do things if it mean that I’m getting better… it’s just that f**king grammar thing and a teacher that stands in my way to get a higher grade… and they give higher grade to a guy in my class, but she’s said that I pronounce words better, I’m better with the grammar and I get higher grades on essays… but he have always been at one level… and now I’ve passed his level, and still I’m not getting any higher…. I’m pissed off on my teachers because it’s not impossible that they have destroyed my future… If I don’t get in on that school, then I probably think I never will play guitar or do anything with music, because this is my life, music is what I want to do, it doesn’t matter what I’ll do, as long as it’s with music I’m gonna love it, but if I don’t get into that school… then it’s over…

I know I shouldn’t think that way, and I know I won’t do it later on, but right now it feels like everything has fallen to pieces… like a window that has been hit my a stone… that’s the only way I can describe my life at this moment; like pieces of a broken window…

But GC isn’t the band that helps me out when I’m this low… I borrowed some CD’s from a guy in my class, I think it was songs from a local band, but I don’t know… I haven’t got my bag here so I can’t look what CD it is…

“do you have the time/ to listen to me whine/ about nothing and everything/ all at once” – Basket Case by Green Day…. My ex boyfriend sang that last year, and he really sounds like Billy Joe when he sings… I love that one… that song, and heavier music, makes me feel a bit better… thanx for listening to me, when I complain about how low I am today…

btw… don’t listen to The Young And The Hopeless” when you’re really low, because that will only make you feel more miserable than you already do… at least I do… because in that song they’re singing about a bad life, and my life sucks right now, and I dunno why, but it brings you down even more…

>>By Mekko



Aarghh, people just suck. You shouldn't let any of that get you down. Don't let anything at all get you down. If GC helps you feel better, listen to them, fine.
I'm unlikely to listen to "The Young And The Hopeless” at any time, because I think it sucks... ah well, enjoy it if you want to. I think most music will stop you from hitting the bottom. If you think you're a really bad musician, listening to Good Charlotte should cheer you up because surely you can't be as bad as them. If there's hope for GC, there's hope for anyone!

>>By Flake 1.6



okay... thanx... the biggest problem with me is that I nearly start crying even if I'm not sad... I don't know why... but I really wanted those grades because here in sweden they're changes and gets points instead... like G (Good) is worth 10 points, VG (translated Very Good) is worth 15 points and MVG (translated Very Very Good) is worth 20 points... and to the school I want to go to in august you have to have 190 points... and I maximum gets 185... that sucks...

A friend is pissed off on me because something I've done, and now he won't talk to me... and he's one of my best friends... HELP ME! the last time I probably will meet him in on friday next week... =(

>>By Mekko



Hey Riot Girl,
just been hanging around my house doing nothing...and i discovered that my brother's window doesn't squeak so i've been sneaking out at night with buddies. But yeah, i am now an official member of the flork empire, oiy! I wonder how the Nazi master of this site is doing.

Mekko,
This sounds familiar, and happened to me not to long ago. I really hurt one of my best friends. What happened, maybe i can help.

>>By Artemis7.0



I took some quotes from him and he got angry... and there's rumours about he being in love with me and I'm in love with him but I turned him down... no rumours is true, but he doesn't get angry at the moment, he has to get more and more, and the quotes was the line for him to get angry.... I turned him down infron of all his friends....

>>By Mekko



lol artemis nazi master i couldnt agree more

>>By therion



What's the Flork empire??
Why did you turn him down if you love him? Maybe you should just tell him you love him and beg him to forgive you. That would probably work on me if I were him.

>>By Flake 1.6



I don't love him... but I hate to make people sad, and he was really sad when I said that... I tried to talk to him for some day ago... but he was so mad at me so it wasn't a very good idea...

>>By Mekko



I think I know exactly what you mean... he'll probably stop being mad at you soon enough, but if he really does love you, he won't stop loving you for a long time.

>>By Flake 1.6



I read through the lyrics to the songs of SlipKnoT I have… and I realize… I feel more connected with their lyrics than with GC’s… somehow…

I’m gonna give you examples from 3 songs by SlipKnoT:

1- Before I Forget
“I am a world before I am a man/ I was a creature before I could stand/ I will remember before I forget/ Before I forget that!/ I'm ripped across the ditch - And settled in the dirt and I/ Wear you like a stitch - Yet I'm the one who's hurt/ Pay attention to your twisted little indiscretions/ I've got no right to win, I'm just caught up all the battles”

2- Pulse Of The Maggots
“This is the year where hope fails you/ The test subjects run the experiment/ And the bastards you know is the hero you hate/ But cohesing is possible if we try/ There's no reason/ There's no lesson/ No time like the present/ Tell me right now, what have you got to lose?/ What have you got to lose, except your soul?/ Who's with us?”

“We fight, till no one can fight us/ We live, and no one can stop us/ We pull but we’re pushed too far/ And the advantage is, the bottom line is/ We never had to fight in the first place/ We only had to spit back in their face We won't walk alone any longer/ What doesn't kill us only makes us stronger”

3- DUALITY
I have screamed until my veins collapsed/ I waited as my time’s elapsed/ Now all I do is live with so much fate/ I've wished for this, I've bitched at that/ I've left behind this little fact/ You cannot kill what you did not create/ I've gotta say what I've gotta say/ And then I swear I'll go away/ But I can't promise you'll enjoy the noise/ I guess I’ll save the best for last/ My future seems like one big past/ You’re left with me 'cause you left me no choice”

“Put me back together/ Or separate the skin from bone/ Leave me all the pieces/ Then you can leave me alone/ Tell me the reality/ Is better than the dream/ But I found out the hard way/ Nothing is what it seems!”

And 3 examples from Good Charlotte, after that you’re gonna tell me which lyrics you feel most connected to.. I already know it’s SlipKnoT…

Here’s the 3 song examples from Good Charlotte:

1- Hold On
“Hold on if you feel like letting go/ Hold on it gets better than you know/ Don't stop looking, you're one step closer/ Don't stop searching, it's not over/ Hold on if you feel like letting go/ Hold on it gets better than you know/ Hold on

“What are you looking for?/ What are you waiting for?/ Do you know what you're doing to me?/ Go ahead...What are you waiting for?”

2- The Motivation Proclamation
“Motivate me/ I wanna get myself out of this bed/ Captivate me/ I want good thoughts inside of my head/ When I fall down would you come around and pick me right up on the ground”

“You try to change me/ You try to save me/ You say I’m gonna learn/ I’m so blind/ I’m out of time you’re so unkind sometimes”

3- I Don’t Wanna Stop
“Now I don’t need you to buy me pretty things (you don’t pay for me)/ Pay for my tattoos or buy me diamondrings (we don’t want those things)/ All I know is that I’m happy to see you smile ( I wanna see you smile)”

Okay… as you maybe noticed it’s much more lyrics on SlipKnoT… and the reason could be that they don’t sing about the same thing… sure, they both sings about life, but it feels like my life is more like Corey & Co, than Joel & Co… I read somewhere someone said “when you write about an event, then you have put a date on it, but if you write about a feeling, then it’s timeless” something like that… and I my opinion is that the members in SlipKnoT has been through different things than GC, They don’t sing about their past in the same way as GC do, they’re more like taking one-day-at-the-time and not looking backwards… I’m not gonna talk more about SlipKnoT now because of course… this is a GC board…

So.. someone who has heard any news about GC?

“I don’t care if it sells two f**king copies, it’s the best record that we’ve ever made. We’ve already won!” – Joey Jordison (the drummer) Couldn’t help it.. I wanted this quote to be with…

btw… I’m friend with that guy that I talked about before (the one I turned down)… if anyone was interested in knowing that… or.. at least he laughed when we danced because it didn't go very well... (none of us can dance)

>>By Mekko



Lol, aww, that's good to know!Good for you! ;-)

>>By kathy_moose



well... they do rock... but not THAT much... they're good but definitely not the best band in the world... what I like about GC is their hair *lol* I just love Billy's haircut (in can definitely not depend on that I have the same, but I've had it before I knew about GC) and Benji's hair was cool before, you know, when he had the liberty spikes.... but Paul's and Joel's is so damn boring... and Chris... I don't like he's haircut....

as someone maybe has notice I like SlipKnoT better... and I still can't listen to Coldplay without being like "turn of the music!" I'm sorry.. I don't like 'em...

>>By Mekko



How long have you and this guy been friends? You should tell him how you feel about the relationship, ya know. That you guys are just friends. Having a boyfriend (or girlfriend) isn't really all its cracked up to be, everything is just easier when things are casual. And if he does really love you, then he will forgive and forget, so just give it some time.

And, the flork empire used to not exsist...people could come to this site and post without having to log in/be a part of flork. But then the asshole who runs this site decided that the word discussion means *only say nice things and those who have opposing opinions need not apply*. So me and Emoboy and Riot Girl, and i think someone else spent much energy trying to point out to this german web master that he is an idiot. but of course he took it personally, and thus, Flork was born, which is a little less convenient, but really was quite pointless to create. So yes, that is the age old story. lol

>>By Artemis7.0



about 4 years... I came to my class in 7th grade but I met him the year before... I was supposed to do that last night but I discovered that he was on the Sweden Rock Festival instead of a beachparty... but I'm gonn talk to him next week or when he gets home....

>>By Mekko



I just found out I said "I came to my class" in my last message.. it should be "he came to my class"... *lol*

>>By Mekko



I've discovered that there a lot of bands out there who are not as good as Good Charlotte. So really, I should be thankful I have them to be inflicted with. Good Charlotte suck in a lot of ways, but at least they sound slightly cool.

>>By Sk8a H8a



haha... glad you've realized that *lol* I think The Hives is one of those bands who isn't as good as GC... say what you want about that but I think so...

>>By Mekko



Well, the Hives are pretty poor musicians, but I still think they're the best band to come out of Sweden ever, including ABBA... I suppose you're gonna get really famous now and prove me wrong! Still, the hives are better than GC. Their music has a point.

>>By Sk8a H8a



The Ville Valo discussion board seems to have come to a standstill on 42 pages - maybe this is the time to push forward and see if we can overtake them reclaiming Good Charlotte's rightful place as the largest discussion on gnoosic. So let's find lots of different stuff to say about Good Charlotte!
Maybe we could decide once and for all on the sexuality of each of the band members. We're pretty sure Benji is bisexual - but what about the others? Joel probably has twincest with Benji (ever since their masculine father figure abandoned them they've clearly turned gay just to wind him up) but maybe Paul is straight. Billy just looks camper than the rest of them put together, and I have no idea who the drummer is right now. Chris? Aaron? They keep changing so often - it's as though they're a manufactured band. Oh wait - they are!

I cant rember who posted this and I cant be bothered to find it, I think it was s8a h8a but it is pure genus:

Why do they write so many songs about their father when they dont even know him.

>Cause they want little kids (mainly preppy girls) to think they have had such a bad life because daddy walked out when they were 16 (you should be old enough to look after yoursleves) and buy their albulms, and 2 clothing labels, and calanders, and dolls (have they been realised yet?) and posters, and dvd, and watch their tv shows.ect ect.as that is the only bad thing that has happened they only have that to write about...

They probabely will turn emo because that is the 'new thing'.

Heh, I jut looked at this message again and thought "Loads of kids have to grow up all the way through life without fathers - being 16 and with only a mother can't be that bad..." Also I'm curious to know about the dolls myself. Not that I'd wanna buy them - just how deep into selling out have Good Charlotte gone?

>>By Sk8a H8a



gc dolls huh...how stupid can people get...do you really think people will buy them?? thats...holy fuck...stupid

>>By Brokendreams



THEY SUCK A** I CANT BELIEVE I LIKED THEM THEY ARE POSER FU**** THEY CAN GO TO HELL THEY MAY DRESS PUNK BUT THEIR MUSIC IS WEAK A** STUFF. YOU ALL BETTER STEP AWAY FROM THAT CRAP

>>By VampGirl



haha... okay.. I shall try to keep that in mind...

>>By Mekko



Little girls like dolls, don't they? Most of GC's main fans are about 9-year-old girls...
