Pop-punk or post-punk band Good Charlotte was formed in 1996 by twins Joel Madden and Benji Madden. Both of them were born on March 11, 1979, in the town of Waldorf, Maryland. Happened by chance, the twin brothers, who never sang or played an instrument in their lives, were instantly inspired to form a band after seeing the Beastie Boys on their 1995 Ill Communication tour. Thus, they soon formed Good Charlotte with their high school friends Paul Thomas and Aaron Escolopio. When the band was first formed, Joel was on vocal, Benji was on guitar, Paul on bass, and Aaron on drums. All of them soon moved to Annapolis and met Billy Martin through a mutual interest in the band Silverchair.
