Today Show host Craig Melvin referred to The Goo Goo Dolls as a "classic rock group." Them's fightin' words, bruh!
Last night, the 88th Annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center took place. While we were provided amazing performances, there is one that is being talked about more than the others.
Today Show host Craig Melvin has found himself in deep shit for referring to 90s band 'Goo Goo Dolls' as a "classic rock group."
Melvin, 41, was DESTROYED on social media by many Gen X'ers, Xennials, and Millennials.
The Goo Goo Dolls formed in the 1980s, but did not become 'known the world over' until the early-to-mid 1990s. One of their earliest songs, "Long Way Down," was featured in one of my all-time favorite movies, "Twister." They are known for the song "Iris," which was featured in "City of Angels." If I remember correctly, I believe this song was played at a few of the dances at my school.
I was a huge fan of the Goo Goo Dolls in the 1990s, and I still love them. Even though the 1990s was more than a few decades ago, I would never refer to them as "classic rock." Such a label makes me feel like I need to throw away my thongs, wear granny panties, put a muumuu on, soak my false teeth, and call it a day.
Now everyone over the age of 35 feels old as fuck (I'm turning 38 in just over 3 weeks). Hope you're sleeping well at night, Craig Melvin. You blimey bastard!
By the way, Johnny Rzeznik is still fine as hell, and I'm waiting for his wife to reward him with a hall pass. I'm waiting, boo! j/k
