The Top Ten

the best ever! and can anyone else in this world reach the top quality of the song?! I doubt it! the best part is "when every things' meant to be broken... I just want you to know who I am"!
Such a beautiful song, I have it on my blog! :) "I don't want the world to see me, 'cause I don't think that they'd understand, when everything's mean to be broken, I just want you to know who I am" Beautiful.
Brilliant! Without a doubt one of the best songs ever made, so much feeling crammed in!
[Newest]I have a extremely varied music taste, so much so that I didn't think I could ever reply to someone when they would ask what my favorite song was. But a couple of years back I just replied Iris and I don't even know why. But without reasons it's my favorite song, that's how much power it has.

A great composition where the 'feel' of the song matches the delivery of insightful lyrics - taking the listener to a reflective place where they can just think about anything and appreciate what is important to them
Amazing guitar riff and some of the best lyrics I have ever heard in a song! Truly an underrated masterpeice. "scars are souveneers you never loose, the past is never far... "


Even though Iris was what brought me to The Goo Goo Dolls, I think this song took over as my #1!


[Newest]Love this song. I agree that the lyrics make a lot of sense in relation to the tone of the song.

3Black Balloon
The Most Amazing song I have have heard! I lay in the backyard and star at the stars while listening to this. Such a mezmerizing voice that just makes you happy. I'm glad they changed from their roots.
This song has been with me always and iris is definitely #uno but black balloons must be 2nd or I don't know. I really love this song

Every time I hear this song, I don't know how but I just feel good.I mean, how could you not like a song that starts with "could you whisper in my ear, the things you wanna feel...I'll give you anything".Goo Goo Dolls is one the best underrated bands of all time. A "slide" is one of their masterpieces.
Not as well known as Iris but its still a great song. Far more bright and upbeat with a fairly catchy chorus.
This is such a good song. It came out a couple months after I was born. The chorus is upbeat. The line I wanna wake up where you are is one of the best lines.
[Newest]Slide is one of best songs ever

5Here Is Gone
this song is way better than slide in my opinion... simply great!
Great chorus and lyrics, not as good as Iris but it should be at number 2 at least.
This song liberates me every time I hear it. Some how I feel invisible, I feel free. This song is my inspiration for life. For this song I live to plan every adventure I set my self to do. For no one can ever hold me back. This song has to be the best.
Hands down my favourite song. Beautiful lyrics and it just feels right.
[Newest]Big machine should be in the top 10

6Better Days
Almost all of us have lived through that horrible year. The year we look back at and wonder how we even survived. I know I wonder the same about 2011 almost everyday.
"And you asked me what I want this year,
And I try to make this kind and clear.
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days,
'cause I don't need boxes wrapped in strings.
And designer love and empty things,
Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days. "
It makes you hopeful, because there's always going to be a tomorrow that's better than today. It may not be today's tomorrow, but there will be tomorrow. And it's a message for all of us. Beautiful song.

7All That You Are
Heard it in Transformers 3. Loving it since then. Amazing lyrics. Deserves to be higher on the list.
The feel of this song is amazing... Just can't get enough of it
Yeah, all the things that you are,
Beautifully broken, alive in my heart,
And know that you are everything,
Let your heart sing and tonight, we light up the stars,
Should be higher on the list, I personally think. Transformers 3 may have been a misstep, but it had a good soundtrack.
1. Iris
2. All That You Are
3. I'm Awake Now


8Long Way Down
Classic goo goo dolls 90's alternative rock, much better than the new slow albums that are essentially alternative rock ballads.
Really good vocals for a rock song and altogether sounds very clean. It is by far my favorite song by them.
Best song they ever did!

One of the best songs ever! Why soy low in the list, before I came to this site I think that sympathy would be 2#
It deserves to be much higher in the list. A really beautiful song!

10Rebel Beat
Great song, awesome riff, Goo goo dolls at their best. The new album is releasing in may. Can't wait for it to release. Hoping for some more similar stuff from the album.
Keeps me motivated, makes me feel wild and free with my friends
New album, new song great loved it.

The Contenders

Can't believe that broadway is not wven in the list... Broadway is a really cool song and I really love it... Brilliant lyrics and beautifully tunes... I love this song... Never gets old...
Love it though reminds me of my brother

This should be number 1


13We Are the Normal
Very underrated song by goo goo dolls! It has a amazing vocals lyrics and the violin added in just makes it better! "We are the normal, we live and we die with no reason why"


Such a classic goo goo dolls sound.

14Before It's Too Late
Before its too late. Its not a song you can't get out of your head But this sure is a song one should not miss! For me this is the second best after Iris! Don't miss this if you love Goo goo Dolls.
Oh my god...! This song is what I've searching for. The lyrics is so deep. Bring me back to the past..!
A song of true compassion!

15I'm Still Here
Thank you guys, really I listened I'm Still Here after seeing your comment, and yeah truly masterpiece song, I'm lovin it, and "IRIS" is also one of the best song of goo goo dolls but I'm still here is really great, goo goo dolls written such a meaningful lyrics with great music.. I'm listening it right now while commenting, ♫ it is now top of my playlist and I keeps on listening it. Ten time continuously :)
"I'M STIILL HERE" is Better Than "IRIS", this should be number 1... It is also used in the movie "Treasure Planet".. Really Awesome Song With Awesome Lyrics and Guitar Playing.. And I searched the top ten best song list of GOO GOO DOLLS just because of this song... I'm not saying put this on top.. But if you really like Goo goo Dolls Just Listen this song.. Iris disappointed me
The Goo Goo dolls are true writers of music. They know to "connect" with the emotions of people including me. The lyrics are amazing, "Wanna touch things I don't feel,
Wanna hold on and feel I belong.
And how can the world want me to change,
They’re the ones that stay the same.
The don’t know me,
'Cause I’m not here.

These lyrics blow my mind! Love the goo goo dolls
[Newest]Most underrated, hardly known song, from an underrated, hardly known movie, better than iris, better than slide, simply brilliant, the tune is different but still has the goo goo doll sound, simply perfect!

16Stay With You
Not in the top ten?

1. Iris
2. Before It's Too Late
3. Black Balloon
4. Stay With You
5. Better Days
Awesome song, really awesome. Iris is obviously number 1 here and justifiably so, this has to come second surely?

17Let Love In
People slate this song for some reason, I absolutely love it to be honest.
Amazing song! Deserves to be way higher on the list.
The best goo goo dolls song by far

18Come to Me
With lyrics like "Come to me with secrets bare, I'll love you more so don't be scared", this song should definitely be on top. It describes what a real relationship is like!
I was going to vote for iris but I saw this song was so low so I voted for this because I like it
I LOVE this song it has got to be up there with iris for its sweet simplicity

One of my favourite! Love it!

20Give a Little Bit
This song should be in the top ten I mean it is one of those songs that when you listen to it, it feels like you were born with it already implanted into your head I just love this song!

21Acoustic #3
Best song EVER! Even though it's short it has a good story and for some reason I relate to it.

This song deserves much more. Very nice ballad

23Somethin' Bad

24Without You Here
Great Song... You Should Listen To It Once And Decide If It Is Not Better Than Most Songs Above It...

25Cuz You're Gone
One of their originals and it sounds good!


My Favorite Goos song!
They peaked in 1995

My Fave Song off of Something for the Rest of us


Very Good Song! This is one of the GGD's great songs in the modern era and they've had quite a few!


28Still Your Song


30All Eyes On Me
Such a good song

31Keep the Car Running
Great song keeps me moving through adversity

32Ain't That Unusual
Nice Song from the album. Pure punk and an awesome riff. A real lovely song. One of my favorites. Should have been a single from the album. Guys give this song a chance. M/

33Flat Top
Deep meaning, good music, cool video. It could be a great hit if they released this song after "name", but not before.

34What a Scene
Why isn't this song somewhere nearer to the top?

35Sweetest Lie
My 2nd fave song of of the SFTROU Album!


36I'm Awake Now
An amazing, underrated song. Has a darker feel to it, but really gives you hope with "I'm awake now. You can't touch me, I won't sleep no more".
All of these are aweomse but iris! Nad there is one video in which avril is aslo singing this

37Feel the Silence
Has to be up there! Just love the part where the chorus breaks off... I dunno why but this song just stuck with me... Must give it a listen guys!

38Think About Me

39It's Over

40There You Are
Really?! This the best song for them ever
It's way better than iris and other ggd song it's a must hear song you idiots
It can't be 25 at least top three

An amazing, striking, wordless song... Listen and felt what I'm saying.
Great song love you guys!

42Slow It Down

43Now I Hear
Not many listen to this song but they should because it's one of my faves!


44Eyes Wide Open
Great melody and guitar riff. The song's theme has a great meaning that should be paid more attention to. Many people want to have everything but don't want to work for it and don't realize that working hard will make you much happier than getting what you want all of the time.

45Caught In the Storm
Really Great Song I love the Meaning


46Slave Girl

47As I Am

This song is amazing, can't believe it's not on the list! Behind Name, this is my favorite Goo song. The guitar sounds so amazing, and the lyrics make so much sense, and have so much meaning behind them. This is on of those songs that people always forget when listing great Goo songs!

49Two Days In February

50Can't Let It Go

51Rough Boys

52Say You're Free

53Hey Ya

54When the World Breaks Your Heart

55American Girl (Live)

56Big Machine
What the hell? Big machine? Why so low in the list?! Its way better than all that you are! Deserves to be in top 4 at the least... Song of an L.A. woman...
Can't believe it's so down. Deserves to be in the Top Ten. Awesome song.
No no no.. This song deserves top 10 at the very least
