Was the Distressor also used to achieve the distortion on the vocals in Girls & Boys by Good Charlotte?
That album was mixed on the Neve 8128 console. One of the coolest tricks on that console was plugging a line level signal into the mic pre input on one of the channels. It created this very thick full range distortion that blended in perfectly with the source track. I used it all the time on vocals, I was doing that all the way back to the first Smash Mouth record. I am 99% sure that is the effect you are hearing on the vocals on that song.
