Yellowcard Ward Off Good Charlotte Comparisons

guitarist Benjamin Harper tells Sean Richardson of the Boston Phoenix they realize they’re begging comparison with and Simple Plan by courting the mainstream, but they’re confident they’ve got the goods to avoid a backlash. “We’re not getting, ‘Oh, it’s just another Good Charlotte,’ because we do our own thing. I just think we’re a little more intellectual when it comes to our songwriting, our performances, and our story — we have a story to tell. Those are the only rock bands that have really gotten any hype lately, on that kind of level. Hopefully, we’ll bridge the gap between cheesy and cool. You can be catchy but not be some kind of little-kid thing.” The full interview at has since been removed.
