"Big Machine" is a song by the Goo Goo Dolls, first released on their Gutterflower album in 2002. It was written by lead vocalist/guitarist Johnny Rzeznik, who calls it his "disco song" and describes its meaning as "a propulsive tale of unrequited love". This song's drums were on a drum machine, and it was called "Disco". This song was written about the people in LA, and the way of life, as told on VH1's Storytellers.[1]
