No Doubt’s 7 Best Songs Ranked

No Doubt is reuniting for the first time after nearly ten years, [inlink id="2024-coachella-lineup" text="headlining Coachella"] this April. The ska-rock-pop band consisting of Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal, Tom Dumont, and Adrian Young last performed at 2015's Rock in Rio. No Doubt was first formed in 1986, with Stefani's brother Eric Stefani as a former founding member. He was the band's keyboardist and officially left the band in 1994. With the rise in popularity of grunge music at the time, the band didn’t see mainstream success until their third album, 1995's Tragic Kingdom, which featured hits like “Don’t Speak,” “Just a Girl,” and “Spiderwebs.” The band underwent a few hiatuses, as most bands do. The most recent hiatus, Stefani told Rolling Stone at the time, was due to her and bassist and co-writer (and her ex-boyfriend) Kanal growing apart creatively. No Doubt About It Stefani can't stomach some of No Doubt's music -- literally. In a recent interview, she admits she avoids listening to certain songs because of the painful memories they hold, explaining that some of the songs make her feel sick. "I can’t listen to a lot of the songs because they speak so clearly to me." She recalls the songs that have to do with regrets and mistakes she's previously made. She specifically lists "Ex-Girlfriend" as a song that, even upon speaking the track's title, she almost throws up in her mouth. Stefani revealed earlier this month that even though the group hasn't started rehearsing yet, two months out, she knows she has to relearn the lyrics to their older songs. While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, she guessed having to relearn eight to nine songs. For fans attending Coachella, Stefani "accidentally" revealed she is performing one of the first songs she ever wrote, 1995's "Different People." The band has six studio albums, and we ranked our favorite seven songs below.
