Good Charlotte Bands First

7 Of Your Favourite Band’s First/ Early Live Performances

It’s gonna get real nostalgic rather quickly…

Whilst we’re 99% sure we’d have to search the internet for a lot more hours than we’d care to to perhaps find their absolute first EVER performances (that’s if they were even captured on video for that matter), the ones below will for sure give you some good nostalgic feels.

Oh and considering the oldness of some of these videos, prepare for bad quality audio and questionable fashion choices…



The Amity Affliction – 2004

45 seconds of baby Amity – What more could you ask for?


A Day To Remember – 2006



August Burns Red – 2005

The moment at 3:12 is precious :’)


Northlane – 2011



Architects – 2005

Their first ever show as Architects. Your eyes might thank us for showing you this but pre-warning… your ears might not (the audio quality is erm, questionable).


Good Charlotte – 1999 

Imagine if someone could’ve said to Benji Madden: “One day, you’re going to marry Cameron Diaz” …


Linkin Park – 2000

Highly likely to be their “first” performance, but it’s never going to get any less emotional to watch back Linkin Park’s super early sets.
