Since I was little I have been a fan of the Goo Goo Dolls-and I must admit, my love has yet to fade! I have pushed, begged, and pleaded for the band to come play at JMU, and while that has still not happened, I won’t let the idea go. From “A Boy Named Goo,” to “Dizzy Up the Girl,” to their most recent 2010 album, “Something For the Rest of Us,” the Goo Goo Dolls have not failed to write a song that hits home and never gets old to me! I think my favorite song of all time by them would have to be “Slide,” but “Name” is also a close second. Even off of their newest album, I really like the song “Not Broken” (live video below!). I don’t think the band will ever stop making great music!
Despite a diverse and changing world, Goo Goo Dolls continue to write music that speaks to fans everywhere. Don’t worry, JMU; I will never give up hope of the Goo Goo Dolls performing here (maybe in the Fall?!), playing a little something for the rest of us!
