Fans of Good Charlotte get the opportunity to ask Joel Madden and Dean Butterworth questions in this APTV MI Conversations Series episode, hosted by Ryan J. Downey.

When someone asked about mainstream and underground music, Madden had an uplifting answer. "There's the question of authenticity," he said. "There's no right or wrong... there are people who just listen to Top 40 on the radio, and that's their deal. I like that though! It's good for music."

The two musicians also discussed songwriting processes with other musicians and gave tips on how to get a young band booked at local venues.

See what other questions they answered in the video! —Anne Nickoloff
