Dizzy Up the Girl is the sixth studio album by American rock band The Goo Goo Dolls, originally released in September 1998 via Warner Bros. Records.

The Goo Goo Dolls were formed in 1986 by John Rzeznik (vocals, guitar), Robby Takac (vocals, bass), and George Tutuska (drums, percussion). The trio picked their name from a True Detective ad for a toy called a Goo Goo Doll. According to John Rzeznik: "We were young and we were a garage band not trying to get a deal. We had a gig that night and needed a name. It's the best we came up with, and for some reason it stuck. If I had five more minutes, I definitely would have picked a better name". 

Dizzy Up the Girl was produced by Rob Cavallo (noted for his work with Linkin Park, Green Day, Eric ClaptonAlanis Morissette, Black Sabbath, and Phil Collins) and is The Goo Goo Dolls' most successful album to date, selling over 3 million copies world wide. The album's success is in part to the rock ballad "Iris", which was also included in the soundtrack album of the Nicolas Cage film City of Angels.

Upon its release in March 1998, "Iris" immediately reached #1 on the Hot 100 Airplay chart, and stayed on top for 18 weeks, setting a record that still unbroken. The song also reached #1 on the Billboard Moden Rock chart, the Adult Top 40, the Mainstream Top 40 chart, and other charts in the U.S and U.K, and recieved three Grammy nominations.

Allmusic's Stephen Thomas Erlewine gave the album a 4 out of 5, writing: "Like a less mannered and conflicted Let Your Dim Light Shine-era Soul Asylum, the trio balances hard rockers with ballads. The difference is, they enjoy the mainstreaming of their music and respond with one of their catchiest sets of songs". 

In addition to the huge success of "Iris" (US #9), Dizzy Up the Girl featured three additional top forty singles, with the songs "Slide" (US #8), "Broadway" (US #24), and "Black Balloon" (US #16). 

Dizzy Up the Girl is certified 3x Platinum in the US, 2x Platinum in Canada, Gold in New Zealand, and Platinum in Australia.
