GOO GOO DOLLS - A Boy Named Goo


They are fresh faced and young but ironically have been sitting on the music industry wheel since 1996, introducing the Goo Goo Dolls. Currently sitting high and dry and confident with there recent single release 'Only One'. Goo Goo Dolls have had six albums released although 'A Boy Named Goo' is the first release since signing with Warner Bros. Records in 1997. This album reminisces with yesteryear songs of The Ramones and even a slight hint of REM, the obvious comparison is the raw-smashing-rock'n'roll sound of pure hard well written songs and explicitly perfect lyrics. Front man and guitarist Johnny Rzeznik has it all talent, style and for the girlie fans very gorgeous and handsome looks. Goo Goo Dolls have a nice clean sound that somewhat is still able to carry a pop-thrash-heavy tone that leaves the listener clear about what they are hearing. Not like many bands that make you feel all stirred and confused not only about the musicianship but what language the vocalist is singing in if any at all. Much to the credit of this talent you can find their music on many movie soundtracks such as Nightmare on Elm Street 6, Batman and Robin and more recently City of Angels. Keep an eye out for Goo Goo Dolls which won't be hard as they are all over the media at present from TV to print.
