Jokes:

What became of the kid who flipped off John Rzeznik? He posed for the cover of "A Boy Named Goo".

Band Name Origins:

  • After a venue promoter said he would book them if they changed their original name the band's name was taken from an ad found in True Detective magazine. Submitted by: me
  • Originally, the band was called "The Sex Maggots". When a club owner in the band's hometown of Buffalo, New York balked at putting the band on stage with that name, they were pressed to find a new one just minutes before they were set to perform. Flipping through a True Detective magazine, the band members spotted an ad for a goo goo doll, and they thought it would be funny and ironic for a trash-punk-rock band to have that name. And so it stuck. Submitted by: ChickenCookie

Stupid Band Names:

  • Is this not a band of males? I am a guy and I certainly wouldn't want to be referred to as a member of the "Goo-Goo Dolls". What were they thinking, choosing a name like this? Submitted by: Travis
  • It sounds like an all- or mostly-girls band, but they're all guys. What GUY wants to be known as a GOO GOO DOLL?!?!? Submitted by: Jonathan S.
  • It just sounds so immature. Submitted by: Leigh-Ann
  • Sounds like a name that a baby would think of. Submitted by: hehateme
  • Hell, THEY even admit it. Submitted by: pauhead

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"What a Scene"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Na na na-na-na na
Na-na-na-na na-na na nana na na na nana na na....
Why They're Repetitive:
This song is really cool, but they repeat that at least 11 times. Lets see, multiply 17 by 11... oh god!!!! 127?!?!?! how could Robby stand repeating one thing over 100 times in one song?! I mean sure Johnny's the frontman but god!!! Robby stand up for yourself!! You used to be the frontman and you're a year older than him, that should be no problem!!!

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Iris"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Yeah you bleed just to know you're alive.
Why They're Nonsensical:
At first I was thinking more along the lines if someone stabbed someone with a knife and left you for dead that you would eventually bleed to death. That sounds pretty farfetched to me. But I guess it means something different.
Submitted by: Celeste
"Dizzy"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Everything you are
Falls from the sky like a star
Why They're Nonsensical:
What?!? This is probably metaphoric, but many people might interpret this literally, in which case it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
