Goo Goo Dollas, Everclear & More


We pride our “Back In The Day Buzz” section of as the place where we keep you up to date on all the latest in 90’s news, based on breaking national news that is obvious, but also sources that I have within the music and record industry that are much more unique to this very website.

So, it embarrasses me that it took Ryan in Louisville to reach out to me on Twitter (@roundtrip90s) and request an update on the Goo Goo Dolls! Ryan, you beat me to the punch on this one and as a diehard fan of “The Dolls,” I’m upset with myself for not sharing the exciting news earlier.

And that news is….


It’ll be called “Magnetic” and comes out in just a few more weeks (June 11th).

Right now, if you get on the Goo Goo Dolls website (, you can pre-order your own copy that comes on CD with bonus tracks AND get a digital download on the day it comes out, extra photos and booklets, an on-line membership to the website and an instant download (today) of the new single, “Rebel Beat.”

Translation: you’ll want to go purchase the album immediately.

While we’re on the topic of Goo Goo Dolls, I have to share some bad news that still haunts me, to this day.

Back in 1999, I had the chance to see them with New Radicals (before Greg Alexander went off the deep end and disbanded the group in the middle of their follow up single to “You Get What You Give,” a ballad called “Someday We’ll Know.”) Those who know me know that I feel as if “Maybe You’ve Been Brainwashed Too” from New Radicals might have been the most underrated album of the entire 1990’s. Pick it up if you’ve never heard it.

Anyway, the fact that I missed that tour of two of my favorite bands of all-time together because I was SICK, and to have New Radicals break up just a few weeks later… makes me even more sick, even in 2013! Grrrr.

One other random update – I can confirm that Art from Everclear will be joining the show soon to catch us up to date with all things Everclear. Looking very forward to that.

Until next time, take care, and keep livin’ the 90’s dream!
