Here are a few awesome No Doubt tracks you have probably no doubt heard before:

Just A Girl:

No Doubt had phenomenal success with their follow up single “Just A Girl”, reaching #23 on the US Hot 100 and #3 on the Australian Charts.

This was the first single from the album “Tragic Kingdom”, An album that reached #1 virtually everywhere and was certified Diamond.

Trapped In A Box:

“Trapped In A Box” is No Doubt’s first ever single, but unfortunately received no airplay on either the radio, or TV.

It is however, great to see where they came from and how far they’ve come.

Don’t Speak:

Don’t Speak, the song that pretty much made No Doubt a household name and arguably the band’s most famous song. The song went #1 everywhere and was also nominated for a Grammy.

Spiderwebs:

Spiderwebs, a song about an unrelenting man calling a girl, reached #18 on the US 100, #16 in the UK, and #46 in Australia.

Hella Good:

Hella Good, the second single off the album “Rock Steady”. It peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, #25 in Canada and it’s highest in Australia, at #8.

Simple Kind of Life:

Simple kind of life was the 3rd single from Return of Saturn. While it was the only release from this album that made it into the US Billboard Charts [#38], it didn’t do as well as previous releases overseas, reaching only #94 in Australia and #69 in the UK.

Still, for a song that was composed and recorded within a week, with no practice sessions, it is a great addition to an awesome album.

New:

The first single from their new album “Return of Saturn”, “New” was also featured in the movie “GO”.

Reached #7 on the modern rock chart in the US and #30 in the UK.

Bathwater:

Bathwater didn’t do to well in the charts, only hitting #79 in Australia, and #39 on the Adult Billboard charts. However, on the re-release in 2004 to correspond with their “best of” album, it reached #17 in the UK.

Bathwater was written in 10 minutes and it’s a song about accepting your lovers faults. The video features the Pussycat Dolls. The burlesque group, not the pop group.

Sunday Morning:

Sunday Morning was composed by Kanal, but Gwen then changed the lyrics to reflect on her relationship with him.

Excuse Me Mr.:

“Excuse Me Mr.” is the fourth single by rock band No Doubt from the album Tragic Kingdom. The music video was directed by Sophie Muller.

Ex-Girlfriend:

Ex-Girlfriend was orignally a slow song, but was sped up because they already had enough “slow songs” on the Album.

Written about Gwen’s relationship with Gavin Rossdale, her then boyfriend, now husband.

It’s My Life:

A cover version of “It’s My Life” (1984) by British synthpop band ‘Talk Talk,’ and it’s pretty good.

Underneath It All ft. Lady Saw:

The song features reggae production and guest vocals from deejay Lady Saw and won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal at the 46th Grammy Awards.

So, have I made you a fan? Be honest now 😛
