This was the third single off "Gutterflower" in 2003, having top 10 success on adult charts, but not doing as well on the mass scale that many of their other hits offered. While this song didn't enjoy particularly high chart success, I think it is a great jam. It's a simple acoustic song that encapsulates much of the sound the Goo Goo Dolls adopted in the mid 1990s.
Starting off our list is the lead single off the group's 2002 album "Gutterflower". Peaking at 18 on the Billboard Hot 100, "Here Is Gone" is the last (chronologically) top 20 single the band has enjoyed to date. Songs like "Broadway", "Better Days", and their cover of "Give a Little Bit" still mark a long list of very successful songs that didn't quite make it into the top 20.
This was one of three top 20 songs for the group off their album "Dizzy Up The Girl" - the band's most successful album in terms of singles. Written about a woman's struggle with heroin addiction, "Black Balloon" topped out at 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. in 1999.
Arguably the band's most recognizable song, 'Iris' is the only single certified platinum in the United States. Released as the first single off "Dizzy Up The Girl" in 1998, it didn't have quite the same chart success as the next song on the list (topping out at 9 on the Billboard Hot 100). Regardless, sales of the song gave the group a platinum album powered partially by the song's use in the soundtrack for the movie City of Angels.
This song was the second single off the band's album "Dizzy Up The Girl", released as a single in September of 1998. "Slide" peaked at number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100, the group's second-highest charting song ever.
Released in 1995 off the album "A Boy Named Goo", this was the group's first top 10 single, following up two other singles off this album that didn't have nearly the same success. "Name" topped out at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, and is the highest-charting song in the band's history.
