Good Charlotte’s ’40 oz. Dream’ Video Pays Tribute to ‘The Last Man On Earth’

By Amanda Wicks

Bands find their inspiration for music videos from all over, and sometimes that includes a favorite TV show or movie. For Good Charlotte’s new video “40 oz. Dream,” the band made an ode to the comedy TV series The Last Man on Earth.

Benji Madden described the video as “A little tribute to our favorite show and the God, Will Forte.” The Last Man on Earth focuses on a group of people who find one another after a mysterious virus wipes out most of the human race.

A title card in the video’s opening seconds sets the stage for how Good Charlotte will interpret that premise. “In 2011, without warning, Good Charlotte retreated from the music scene and ventured into the desert to find themselves,” it reads. “While on their spirit walk an unforeseen catastrophe wiped the human race off the earth, leaving them alone to contemplate the state of the planet and the future of mankind, but also leaving them…The Last Band on Earth.”

The band hits the dusty trail and sets off for Los Angeles, where they plan on playing the last show on earth. Fans of the show will find all sorts of references peppered throughout the video, from main character Tandy’s (literal) ball friends to the house he eventually takes over and stocks with cultural and historical artifacts.

“For us ’40 oz. Dream’ was the perfect song to kick off our new album,” Madden said. “It’s got all the sarcasm and humor we’ve always loved, and lots of affection for the past and present.” “40 oz. Dream” appears on the band’s upcoming sixth studio album, Youth Authority. That album drops July 15.
