MuchMusic.com caught up with Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden for a Coupla Questions, where he talked about scrapping several albums of material before finally achieving their desired sound. “Before the last 20 we did, which is now the album, there was like 50 songs that we did,” he said. “We had an album’s worth and went, ‘nooo, that’s not it.’ So we scrapped that and we started over and we had another album’s worth, 25 songs and again it was, ‘nooo’. We scrapped that and we started over. All these songs were good, we liked them all, but they could have been on the last record. We wanted to do something new, you know, musically, something fresh. I feel like our fans deserve something new. They’ve been with us a long time.”
