Played live for the first time at the SUNY Campus Center in Oswego, NY on April 10th, 2010.
Goo Goo Dolls frontman Johnny Rzeznik says he was inspired to write the song "Home," ironically, because he's never home. He explains, "I spend so much time on the road, and I'm constantly surrounded by people, but I don't really know them, and I'll probably never see them again. And when you live a life like that, it sorta creates a vacuum of intimacy." Johnny says to combat that, he stays in close contact with his family, his girlfriend and the friends he had before he became famous. He says, "They're what gives you strength and keeps you grounded when you're roaming around playing rock music for a living."
