Cage Match: Candlebox vs. Goo Goo Dolls [VIDEO + POLL]

For our Cage Match we will delve into alternative-rock big hitters of the 1990s and two of my favorites — Candlebox and the Goo Goo Dolls.We all remember the ’90s in rock history since it was huge with grunge and great rock alternative and heavy rock all mixed in. So, I thought we would grab two blasters from the alternative area.

First up today is Candlebox with five studio albums that all reached either multi-platinum or gold certifications. Their self-titled 1993 release was their big hitter with songs like ”You” and ”Far Behind” reaching top positions on the charts.

Our next band is the Goo Goo Dolls, who came out of Buffalo and formed in 1986. Dizzy Up The Girl was a monster album with five successful chart toppers like ”Black Balloon” and “Slide.” These guys sold 3 million copies of this album, which went three times platinum.
