"Festival Song" is the fourth and final single taken from Good Charlotte's self-titled debut album Good Charlotte. Joel Madden of Good Charlotte says the song is about the HFStival, an annual rock festival sponsored by Washington, D.C./Baltimore, Maryland radio station WHFS.
"I grew up coming to the HFStival. . . I wrote this song about being here, how we wanted to quit our jobs to be in a band. We have all our friends, the fans and the radio support right here."
The music video was created from footage taken from the band's sets at both days of the 2001 HFStival. It features cameos from members of Mest, Linkin Park and New Found Glory.
