LOS ANGELES, CA Tuesday Sep.4.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Don't call Good Charlotte a punk band, says Billy Martin, who recently told the Canadian website Straight.com that his band isn't and never was part of the genre.

Martin explains: "I don't think we've ever once said we were a punk band. It was everybody else that said, 'Good Charlotte thinks they're punk, and they suck, cause they're not.' I'll be the first to wave my hand and say, 'You're right, we're not punk, and we never have been.' I personally can't name one punk band that's been an influence to me. I never listen to that music, I've never been into it, and I was shocked when we started to get lumped in with pop-punk bands."

Good Charlotte is currently on tour in support of their latest album, "Good Morning Revival." For more information, log on to http://www.goodcharlotte.com/.
