Jed is the second studio album by American rock band Goo Goo Dolls. It is the first studio album in which John Rzeznik sang vocals for some of the tracks. The majority of the songs are sung by Robby Takac, with Rzeznik taking over for two ("Up Yours" and "James Dean"). Fellow upstate New Yorker Lance Diamond sings vocals on track seven, "Down On The Corner." Track number six, "Sex Maggot," shares a name with the band's original name, the Sex Maggots. The second track on the album, "Up Yours", was the only song from Jed found on the band's compilation album What I Learned About Ego, Opinion, Art & Commerce. The song "No Way Out" was also included on the bands most recent compilation album Volume Two, which consisted of other album tracks, b-sides and rarities. The album was re-released on CD on February 22, 1994.

The album was named after painter Jed Jackson, who was Robby Takac's art teacher at Medaille College and who painted the cover artwork, which is entitled "Arkansas Sunset". Jed is from Arkansas.[2]
