The Goo Goo Dolls Not Selling Well With ‘Gutterflower’

Jim Farber of the New York Daily News reports that after nine weeks in the charts, the latest album ‘Gutterflower’ has only sold 329,742 units, less than half sold of the similar rock/pop star Sheryl Crow, who’s cleared 765,794 copies during that period. What’s the problem for the normally popular group? “For one thing, Crow’s hit has much more than just radio play behind it,” he explained. “It’s ubiquitous on TV, thanks to its linkup with the American Express Blue Card ads. Also, Crow can make more hay from her pop play, since it hits her natural constituency dead-on. By contrast, the Goos have a lingering identification as a rock band, whose core following drifted once the group crossed to pop.” The full article at has since been removed or relocated.
