During the 1990s, a number of successful rock bands emerged in popularity and would go on to become radio staples. Bands like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Nirvana all achieved a considerable degree of success, as did the Goo Goo Dolls. Formed in 1986, the Goo Goo Dolls achieved major success in 1995, when they released the double platinum selling A Boy Named Goo, their fifth studio album. A Boy Named Goo featured the band’s first major hit “Name”, which reached the top five of the Billboard Hot 100 charts. With the momentum of “Name”, Goo Goo Dolls would achieve even greater success and cross over into multiple radio genres after releasing the smash hit “Iris” in 1998, written for the Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan film City of Angels.
Although the Goo Goo Dolls haven’t returned to the degree of success they achieved in the 90s, the band continues to perform and release new music to this day; releasing its eleventh album Boxes back in May. The band will be performing at the Bayfront Park Amphitheater Labor Day weekend on Friday, September 2nd and will be joined by another band that became popular in the 90s: Collective Soul, best known for their hits “Shine”, “December”, and “The World I Know”.
