Joel Madden, 43, was born on March 11, 1979, in Waldorf, Maryland. Joel took a keen interest in music from a young age, and at the age of 16, he started his own band, Good Charlotte.
The band was an interesting collaboration among Madden, his twin brother Benji, and their classmates Aaron Escolopio (drums), Paul Thomas (bass), and Billy Martin (guitar).
In 2000, they released their first self-titled album, which earned great reviews from critics and also made it to number 185 on the Billboard 200.
As a band, Good Charlotte has also made cameo appearances in the parody film Not Another Teen Movie and cameos in 2004's Fat Albert and 2006's Material Girls.

Madden made guest appearances in 2015’s The Naked Brothers Band, and on the Fox series Empire. Additionally, he also served as a vocal coach on five seasons of the reality singing competition show The Voice Australia.
Madden also established a clothing line called MADE Clothing with his brothers Benji and Josh. However, its name was later changed to DMCA Collective. The brand was eventually dissolved.
In 2007, Joel co-founded The Richie Madden Children's Foundation with his wife Nicole Richie. The organization was created to inspire moms and their families to purchase items from an online registry.
The couple also owns $6.7 million property in the Beverly Crest neighborhood of the Santa Monica Mountains.
