No Kidding, There is One Good Goo Goo Dolls Song

[originally written for on 10/9/07]

The Goo Goo Dolls, the band that brought us the song that refused to die, Iris, has made a career out of soft, inoffensive rock songs. They’re known for acoustic guitars and lyrics about non-existent women. It’s true. Iris isn’t even a real person, nor is Mae from Slide. The Goo boys may act like hard, dirty alt-rock starts, but their music is slathered in vagina.

Surprisingly though, hidden amongst the pussy music is a lone song with some balls. "Long Way Down" has some real power to it. There’s no doubt it’s a spineless Goo song, but it’s almost real, driving rock. I’m serious. Take a listen. I guarantee it doesn’t completely suck.

Listen - Long Way Down
