Erie County New York Names Today After Goo Goo Dolls
Today is turning out to be a very special day for Buffalo's own Goo Goo Dolls.
The Goo Goo Dolls are back in their hometown tonight at Key Bank Center to wrap up their 2022 summer tour and they just received a very special honor from their hometown.
Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz officially declared September 24th, Goo Goo Doll day here in Western New York.
The county awarded the honor to the Goo Goo Dolls for everything they have done in the world of music but also for what they have done giving back to local musicians in the 716.
The Goo Goo Dolls first got together back in 1986 and worked playing local and national gigs before they had their major hit "Name" in 1995. It would be three years later that their biggest song would come out. "Iris" was written for the soundtrack for the movie "City of Angels" and was included on the Goo Goo Dolls' 1998 album Dizzy Up The Girl. "Iris" would go on to the top of the charts all across the world and become one of the best-selling songs in Ireland.
Since they first got started after graduating high school and college here in Western New York, the Goo Goo Dolls have gone on to sell 15 million records worldwide, and have been nominated for four Grammy Awards.
The Goo Goo Dolls released their 14th album earlier this year. Chaos In Bloom was released on June 27th.
