Dust off your black hair dye and put on your 300 beaded bracelets: Twitter exploded Tuesday morning (Nov. 3) with the hashtag #welcomebackGC after Alternative Press released a 30-second video clip implying that Good Charlotte is back. Early 2000s pop punk is alive and well!

Check out the clip here.

Good Charlotte Returns on New Song -- With Waka Flocka Flame

The band confirmed the news by tweeting with the #welcomebackGC hashtag.

The Madden Brothers-led band has not revealed track names, release dates or any other music information yet, but they did link Twitter's switch from stars to hearts to their comeback news:

The last official release by the band was earlier this year as a feature on a Waka Flocka Flame song for the Pixels soundtrack. Prior to that, the band had been on hiatus since 2011. In fact, it's been five years (and one day) since the band released their last studio album, Cardiology.

Joel and Benji Madden have kept busy during Good Charlotte's hiatus, helping 5 Seconds of Summer co-write the No. 1 album Sounds Good, Feels Good.
