No Doubt is an American rock band from Anaheim, California that formed in 1986. Since 1989 the group consists of vocalist Gwen Stefani, guitarist and keyboardist Tom Dumont, bassist and keyboardist Tony Kanal, and drummer Adrian Young. Since the mid-90's in live performances they are supported by trumpeter Stephen Bradley and trombonist Gabrial McNair. The ska sound of their first album No Doubt (1992) failed to make an impact. The Beacon Street Collection (1995) is a raw expression of their sound, inspired by ska punk and released independently by the band under their own record label. The album sold over 100,000 copies in 1995, over three times as many as their first album sold. The band's diamond-certified album Tragic Kingdom (1995) helped launch the third-wave ska revival of the 1990s, and "Don't Speak", the third single from the album, set a record when it spent 16 weeks at the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart.

The group next album, Return of Saturn (2000), despite the Top 40 hit single "Simple Kind of Life", was a minor success commercially and did not match the success of their previous but received critical praise and was nominated for Best Rock Album at the 43rd Grammy Awards. 15 months later, the band reappeared with Rock Steady (2001), which incorporated reggae and dancehall music into their work. The album was primarily recorded in Jamaica and featured collaborations with Jamaican artists Bounty Killer, Sly and Robbie and Lady Saw. The album produced two Grammy-winning singles, "Hey Baby" and "Underneath It All". On 22 November 2002, No Doubt received the Key to the City of Anaheim, given by the Mayor of Anaheim, Tom Daly in Disneyland during the band's appearance on 'Breakfast with Kevin and Bean' (KROQ-FM) where they performed 5 songs.[2] After 2004 tour the band embarked on solo projects with Gwen Stefani releasing two successful solo albums Love. Angel. Music. Baby. (2004) and The Sweet Escape (2006) while Tom Dumont released his own solo music project, Invincible Overlord. In 2008 the band resumed working slowly on their sixth effort, which is titled Push and Shove to be released on September 25, 2012.

Anyone else a fan of this band? I used to listen to nothing but No Doubt, Blink-182, & Nirvana in Middle School/High School. I am looking foward to their comeback album this year (along with Blink-182's!). What's everyone's favorite songs/videos from them? What's your favorite album? Discuss away.

It was exactly the same with me. Bathwater came out and I fell in love with No Doubt. I'd like them before thanks to Don't Speak and Just a Girl but Bathwater made me start listening to their albums.
