About The Goo Goo Dolls

The band’s whirlwind of a career began in Buffalo, New York, in 1985, when guitarist and vocalist John Rzeznik and bassist and vocalist Robby Takac joined musical forces. They started as a cover band but quickly began penning their own songs. Their debut album released in 1987; the second followed in 1989 and third in 1990.

Their album, “Superstar Car Wash,” released in 1993 is credited to be their breakthrough as an artist. In 1995, A Boy Named Goo was released, where the hit song “Name” originated. The album quickly sold one million copies in the very first year. In 1998, Rzeznik wrote “Iris” for the movie City of Angels and that song alone spent nearly a year on the Billboard charts, with 18 weeks at number one. It also received 3 Grammy nominations.

The Goo Goo Dolls went on to release several more albums, touring with the likes of Bon Jovi, Lifehouse, Switchfoot and more, and performed at some of the world’s best venues and events. It is still onward and upward for the Dolls, with a first-ever EP release last year titled, “You Should Be Happy.”
