The Goo Goo Dolls will grace international fans with a 22-song best of collection this May, entitled "Ego, Opinion, Art & Commerce." The Third Rail/Hollywood Records release will span the band's decade-plus recording career, and will include newly remastered versions of such favorites as "Name," "Bulletproof," "Burnin' Up," and "Iris." There are no plans to release the set stateside.

"Making this record was like looking at a bunch of photo albums from high school -- so wild, all of these bizarre memories came rushing back," says bassist Robbie Takac. "Such a long time had passed
since we'd even gone back and listened to the early records. This was a great opportunity for us to introduce to the rest of the world some of the things we did in the United States in the '80s and early '90s. All those records lead us to our current situation and we had a blast putting this one together."

In North America, the band is signed to Warner Bros., which released 1998's "Dizzy Up Girl." That album peaked at No. 15 on The Billboard 200 and featured the No. 1 Modern Rock Tracks chart hits "Slide" and "Iris."

Here is the tracklist for "Ego, Opinion, Art & Commerce":
"Bulletproof"
"All Eyes On Me"
"Amigone"
"Acoustic #3"
"Naked"
"Ain't That Unusual"
"Burnin' Up"
"Flat Top"
"Name"
"Fallin' Down"
"Second Time Around"
