Brothers Benji and Joel Madden bridged the pop and punk worlds with 2002’s “The Young and The Hopeless,” which sold nearly 5 million copies on the strength of the mega-hit “Lifestyles of the Rich and the Famous” – a subject they would soon know a good bit about. The band’s success quickly waned, although Joel Madden has continued to serve as tabloid fodder thanks to high-profile relationships with Hilary Duff and reality star Nicole Richie, whom he married in 2010. —Jeff Royer
