Nearly 30 years after first forming, the Goo Goo Dolls are still churning out new material. Magnetic, due out in June, will be the band’s 10th studio album, and the band’s legacy as one of the enduring icons of the “alternative” music explosion is secure. VH1 is excited to exclusively premiere the video for “Rebel Beat” tonight, the first single from that album.
Part of the reason for the band’s lasting appeal has been their ability to adapt their sound to fit with the current times while maintaining their own unique musical identity. This song is no exception, as the band seems to be drawing inspiration from OneRepublic’s “Good Life.” Lead singer Johnny Rzeznik’s voice is still scratchy and shambolic, and longtime fans of the band will most certainly find enough of that intrinsic GGD sound to lineup around the block for the tickets whenever the band decides its time to hit the road again.
