Joel Reuben Madden (born March 11, 1979 in Waldorf, Maryland, USA) is lead vocalist for the band Good Charlotte and twin brother of guitarist Benji. Benji and Joel chose the name of the band from a book called Good Charlotte, by Carol Beach York.

Benji was always blamed for Joel's misdeeds because he was a troublemaker. Since Joel and Benji were twins they would switch places, which usually didn't help them out much. Benji and Joel were tormented by their peers throughout their time at La Plata High because they were considered "freaks," which inspired them to write "The Anthem", the second single from the album "The Young and the Hopeless". Joel admits that he couldn't sing a note when the band first started out, but over the years his dulcet tones have taken the modern punk rock world by storm.

In June 2005 rumors about Joel were finally cleared up when Hilary Duff finally admitted the two were dating, and had been seeing each other since Hilary was only 16. Their first public appearance will be at the MTV Video Music Awards in August on the verge of Hilary's 18th birthday.
