Fail O Suckyname is no longer a trope. Wicks are being disambiguated.
'''The Goo Goo Dolls''' are an alternative rock/pop band that have been around since 1986. The band began as [[FailOSuckyname The Sex Maggots]], formed by John Rzeznik, Robby Takac, and George Tutuska; they changed to the Goo Goo Dolls after being banned from playing in a club because their name was too 'obscene'. Tutuska was replaced by Mike Malinin in 1994 (who later left in the end of 2013), just before the band released their fifth album, ''A Boy Named Goo'', and the success of their single "Name" pulled them into the public eye.

* CreatorBreakdown: ''Gutterflower'', the album following ''Dizzy Up The Girl'', was written and recorded after years of touring and fame breaking the band down physically and John's divorce from his ex-wife; while his songs have always been darker and moodier than Robby's, they became much more so on ''Gutterflower'', and the album is a fan favorite.

* ThePeteBest: George Tutuska.

* PromotedFanboy: Mike Malinin was a fan of the band before becoming their drummer.

* NewSoundAlbum: ''Superstar Car Wash'' drove down some of the snot on their earlier albums and cranked up the guitars. ''A Boy Named Goo'' balanced that style with a couple of acoustic ballads ("Name" being the most famous). ''Dizzy Up the Girl'' has some power-pop but mostly saw the band moving towards ballad-style pop rock, a style replicated later on ''Gutterflower'', ''Let Love In'' and ''Something for the Rest of Us''. ''Magnetic'' has electronic elements scattered in its sound.

* {{Flanderization}}: The band has always put at least one acoustic song or power ballad by Johnny on each album, but until ''A Boy Named Goo'', most songs were harder and sung/screamed by Robby. After "Name"'s success, the band began to add more of John's songs and take away Robby's - on their last studio release, ''Let Love In'', Robby only had two songs. The band has also gone from harder rock to more acoustic, slower and more ballad-style songs over the years.
