I love Good Charlotte; always have, always will!
I cannot believe that ‘The River‘ was released a decade ago; it’s an incredible song with a pretty wicked video too; it’s a timeless track!
The song was taken from the band’s fourth album, Good Morning Revival, and featured M. Shadows and Synyster Gates from the band Avenged Sevenfold. It’s a high-intensity track that made a huge impact on me from the very first listen – it’s got a massive energy to it. Interestingly, there are several references to the Bible throughout the song and the running time of the track is 3:16, which an intentional reference to John 3:16.
The track was also dedicated to James “The Rev” Sullivan (from Avenged Sevenfold) after his passing.
