5 WTF Facts About The Goo Goo Dolls

They seem way more hard-core than they actually are

Adult alternative hitmakers The Goo Goo Dolls hit Lucky Star and First Council Casinos on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Yes, they've seen "Better Days," which you can read about below, in our latest WTF installment.

1. The Goos were originally considered a punk band and once played New York City’s iconic punk club CBGB.
2. Somehow, The Goo Goo Dolls released several albums on the Metal Blade label, which also signed GWAR, Slayer and Cannibal Corpse.
3. In addition to writing "Iris" for "City of Angels," the band wrote songs for both "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare" and "Transformers."
4. Leader John Rzeznik and company helped create a video for the Buffalo Sabres 2007 Playoffs. They also sang at halftime of the 2007 Detroit Lions’ Thanksgiving Day game and before the 2011 NFL Pro Bowl.
5. The WWE used a song of theirs as the theme for "Tribute to the Troops 2008." —Stephen Carradini

The Sweet Life

'Sweet' tastes awful bitter

What's a cult-film company like Synapse doing with a romantic comedy like this? I'm still wondering.

VOTD: Sufjan Stevens live at WNYC

Watch Sufy play ‘Pleasure Principle’ with half of The National

Last week on his blog, Daniel J. Kushner published a terrific, three-part interview with neon gaff tape-wearing indie Americana folk artist Sufjan Stevens that focused on his most recent release, the odd but intriguing departure, “The Age of Adz.” Sufjan’s not known to give many interviews, so I definitely encourage you to give this one a read.

Attentive viewers will recognize one of the Dessner brothers (they’re twins, so bonus points to whoever can tell me which one it is) on this intimate live-in-studio session for WNYC radio in New York, and attentive listeners will recognize the song as the end of Sufjan’s epic suite, “Impossible Soul,” from “The Age of Adz.”
