Goo Goo Muck

I picked up Dizzy Up The Girl by the Goo Goo Dolls for a quid at the weekend.
Maybe it's just the way my mind works but I was expecting a wee bit more menace given the proximity of the band's name to the Cramps classic.
Pretty illogical I know but hey that's how my mind works.
Rather, it is fairly inoffensive mainstream rock which I must confess does not do a great deal for me although it seems that they had three songs on the Billboard Top 100 Pop Songs 1992 -2002.
Here are a couple of songs from the album, the second of which I suppose is reasonably topical.

I've posted Goo Goo Muck by The Cramps before but this seems too good an opportunity to pass up.
And as a bonus here is the original by Ronnie Cook and the Gaylads

  1. I've always felt just the same about the name Goo Goo Dolls... it simply made me expect something edgier and must have been the association. Goo Goo Muck wins every time!
