The Goo Goo Dolls are an American rock band formed in
1986 in Buffalo, New York.
After starting off as a cover band and then developing a punk sound, The Goo
Goo Dolls experienced mainstream success following the 1995 release of their
breakthrough single, "Name". The band is renowned for its biggest hit, "Iris",
released in 1998. The song spent nearly 12 straight months on the Billboard
charts and held the number one position on the Hot 100 Airplay chart for 18
weeks. In October 2012, "Iris" was ranked #1 on Billboard's "Top 100 Pop Songs
1992–2012" chart. Other notable singles include "Slide", "Black Balloon", and
"Broadway" from 1998's Dizzy Up the Girl; "Here Is Gone" from 2002's
Gutterflower; and "Better Days", "Give a Little Bit", and "Stay with You" from
2006's Let Love In.

The Goo Goo Dolls has had 19 top ten singles on various charts, has sold
more than 15 million records worldwide, and has been nominated for four Grammy
While it's true that success too often breeds complacency, for the Goo Goo
Dolls it's only served to bring them closer to the fundamentals of
their long-term partnership. "We never really bought in to the
whole rock star myth,"
Rzeznik continues, before adding with a laugh,
"Well, we might have 'rented in' for a weekend here and there, but
in the end it always comes back to the music. For us, success - real
success - is one song at a time."

That's the way it has always been for the Goo Goo
Dolls. From their earliest days on the rough-and-tumble Northeast
music scene through years of playing according to bassist Robby Takac -
"every one night stand in America, twice," through their
obligatory stint in the indie records realm, the band have combined an
unerring instinct for original and authentic music with a hardcore work
ethic that is nothing short of inspirational.
was that mix of talent and sweat equity that paid off with the 1998
release of "Dizzy
Up The Girl," a breakthrough in every sense of the word, with
worldwide sales approaching six million and counting and a string of
smash singles including the epochal "Iris," as well as
"Slide," "Black Balloon" and the title track.

Together, Dizzy's hits have racked up an historic one million radio
spins to date. Two solid years of international touring followed the
album's release and, while the band and its fans could be forgiven for
concluding that the Goo Goo Dolls had finally
"arrived," it was that restless urge to turn the next creative
corner that kept the trio cranking.
It was in the fall of 2001 that John and Robby, along
with drummer Mike Malinin and producer Rob Cavallo (the man behind the
boards for "Dizzy
Up The Girl") began assembling the elements of a new album.
"Of course, our success was a factor going in," asserts John.
"How could it not be? We worked our asses off to get to this place,
and we didn't want to disappoint ourselves or our fans. But more than
that, we wanted to see where the music would take us. We had been living
in a fishbowl for three years, and it felt good to get back to
"I think, if there's a theme to these songs, it
is about being honest with yourself and with others, and seeking out
those who will return the favor," John ventures. "Our
experiences over the past three years have taught us to appreciate
friendship, love and loyalty…those basic human values. When we're
writing about characters we've encountered and scenes we've survived,
it's that need for connection that comes through and hopefully everyone
can relate to that. Otherwise, you're just talking to yourself."
