City of Angels: Iris, The Goo Goo Dolls
The movie: City Of Angels
The song: 'Iris', The Goo Goo Dolls
In the late 90s, heartbroken teenagers were bereft of a way to channel their sullen tendencies and so sat around listening to this song on endless repeat feeling extremely sorry for themselves. It also marks a really poignant point in the movie.
Bonus knowledge: John Rzeznik was on the verge of quitting The Goo Goo Dolls just days before he wrote the song that would launch the band to global fame.
