Goo Goo Dolls
The Goo Goo Dolls are an American rock group that began with a punk sound and slowly became more tame into alternative rock, and finally in their current soft rock sound. Most of the songs that I enjoy by them span from the Superstar Carwash album to the Gutterflower album.
I became interested in the Goo Goo Dolls when their Dizzy Up the Girl album made them very popular, especially from the song Iris which was an anthem for a girl I had a crush on at the time. I bought the album and loved it, then my friend Eric sold me their two earlier albums A Boy Named Goo and Superstar Carwash. The group took over my CD player for awhile. Then, after they took a long time to release their next album Gutterflower, and it sounded much more pop than their earlier work, my opinion of them waned.
I still love a lot of their music, but I'm less interested in them now that they've become an adult contemporary group, and looking back on their earlier work, I find it hard to listen to because of the utter monotony of the drums. I also have a problem with how Johnny Reznik has mistreated his drummers over the years (which probably contributed to the poor drums in his songs) which makes it harder to respect his music, especially songs mocking consumerism and greed.
