Dizzying Up a Goo in This Edition of Rockers’ Block

BlastEcho takes bassist Robby Takac on a rollicking 30-plus year journey and he comes away mostly unscathed



Some music artists have released literally hundreds of songs over the years, to say nothing of the ones deemed too garbage-y to release. BlastEcho wondered if those involved in recording so many songs could remember them all. Enter Rockers’ Block.

For each Rockers’ Block contestant, we play five random songs from their catalog each song from the beginning to see how long it takes for them to guess (well, maybe guess isn’t the right word) the correct song. Then once they do (hopefully), they talk a bit about the song.

Goo Goo Dolls have sold God-knows-how-many-million records, but it took the Buffalo band nearly a decade to become an overnight sensation. Since 1995’s A Boy Named Goo, the group have been virtual radio staples with way too many hits to mention here (and now “Here is Gone”). That said, only diehard fans know the band had four full-length albums to their credit before they had a “Name,” the first two which sound virtually nothing like what’s they’re doing now. If, for example, Jed and “Iris” were incarnate, they wouldn’t want anything to do with each other.

Songs from three of their pre-fame era of albums are featured in this edition of Rockers’ Block, starring founding member/bassist Robby Takac. Let’s hear how good Takac’s is:
