"Predictable" is the lead single from Good Charlotte's third studio album, The Chronicles of Life and Death. This was the first single released that featured Chris Wilson as the band's drummer. This is not to be confused with "The Anthem", which was the first video to feature Wilson. "Predictable" was released to radio on August 24, 2004. The song reached number one on November 12, 2004, on the MuchMusic Countdown. It was released in a Japanese version. In the Japanese version, only Benji Madden sang the Japanese part, because he was the only one who knew Japanese. The video, inspired by the film Edward Scissorhands, takes place in a town drawn by the guitarist Billy Martin, with the band in a house singing the English version. But the Japanese version was dubbed over the English audio.
This song was used for a commercial of Donkey Konga 2, and members of Good Charlotte also appear in the commercial.
