Superstar Car Wash is the fourth studio album by American rock band Goo Goo Dolls, released in February, 1993 on Warner Bros. John Rzeznik wrote the song "We Are the Normal" with his idol, The Replacements' singer Paul Westerberg. The two corresponded by mail but never sat in a studio together. The song "Fallin' Down" was featured in the 1993 Pauly Shore movie Son In Law. Also, the song "So Far Away" was originally written and recorded with the title "Dancing In Your Blood"; the song had the same basic structure, but different lyrics, more minimal instrumentation, and a slightly different melody.
Superstar Car Wash was an actual car washing business on William Street just outside the downtown region of Buffalo, the hometown of the band.
