Trivia

  • The song was one of the songs that Sony paid radio stations to play in the 2005 payola scandal.[1]
  • The video was directed by the renowned Samuel Bayer (uncredited). As a result, the video has a firm plot, instead of standard videos showing the bands performing. This was the last video Sam directed until "American Idiot" by Green Day in 2004.
  • Bassist Paul Thomas is shown wearing a t-shirt with the Baroque Works logo from the anime One Piece. It is unconfirmed whether he is a fan of the series or simply wearing it because of the Jolly Roger theme - the band wore many Jolly Roger themed attires before.
  • Several fans of the band claim this song has saved their life. However, the number of fans that claim this is so large, that the validity of some of these claims has come into question.
  • The video received very limited airplay in the UK - this is because the song was released as a double A-side with "The Young and the Hopeless" merely a few weeks after the music video had been released.
  • The song peaked at #4 on the MuchMusic Countdown series on March 5th, 2004.
  • In a 2007 interview in Rock Sound magazine, guitarist Billy Martin said that mothers have come up to him and said that this song made their child commit suicide. Billy said his response is usually "What the **** do you think the song is about?".
  • As of May 2007, the video for this song has the distinction of being the only Good Charlotte video not on the band's website.
  • Another of Good Charlotte's songs, S.O.S., deals with the same subject matter. However, the core difference is that whilst Hold On is directed at people going through hard times, S.O.S. is written from the perspective of someone going through hard times.
