The Maddens currently appear on the cover of RAGGED, the free publication featuring full-length articles and photo spreads of today's hottest artists sporting the latest collections by American Rag.

In the article, "Good Charlotte: Fashion Ready," Benji and Joel discuss the "Mad Picks" collection;

"We like to wear clothes that you can wear up or dress down, like a T-shirt you can throw a jacket over for dinner. It's important for us as a band to have clothes which we can both walk on stage or relax at home."

Further commenting on the collaboration process, Benji Madden adds,

"Macy's and America Rag have always been places we have looked to for new trends and stylish clothing so it was exciting to be working with retailers where we would normally shop. Both Macy's, American Rag and Filter have been incredible and inspiring to work with and we can't thank them enough for the opportunity. Joel and I can't wait to look out into the crowd at the next Good Charlotte concert and see all the girls wearing our first collaboration from Mad Picks."
