No Doubt - heading on 17 years

by Sarah A on 3/12/2003

I have loved No Doubt ever since I first heard 'Spiderwebs'. It was probably the song that launched them into being really, really successful. I am proud to say I, too, was born + raised in California, but two hours away from Anaheim. Anyway, I know Gwen + her voice will last forever, and, if not, she still is my role model. Read More

No Doubt continues its platinum success with ROCK STEADY, led by the undeniably adorable Gwen Stefani. Besides being a wonderfully charismatic front woman, Gwen's cute quotient is so high you can't help but like this band. While the group's last release, RETURN OF SATURN was more introspective and had a slightly more pop-oriented approach, STEADY returns the group to their roots sound of reggae and ska, while still mixing in a pop/rock feel. "Hey Baby", the first single, has an irresistible sing-along charm (including a rap by Bounty Killer) that makes it a natural for radio play. "Hella Good", possibly the album's standout track, is a funky, danceable tune reminiscent of peak-era Blondie. Gwen's sweet vocals shine through on the pretty "Running," and "Underneath It All" is a fantastic slow-tempo number that builds with a tight horn section.
An all-star cast of producers helped to make this the fun, polished album it is. Co-producer Ric Ocasek boosts "Don't Let Me Down" with a Cars-like synth hook, and injects "Platinum Blonde Life" with a crunchy guitar riff that also sparks memories of his former band. Other star producers include Prince, Sly & Robbie, and William Orbit. ROCK STEADY's musical mix has a wide appeal, custom-made for bringing in many new fans to the No Doubt fold.
Artist Overview
Part Cyndi Lauper and part Madness, No Doubt came out of nowhere in 1995 and exploded on the alt-rock scene with their special brand of mainstream ska-rock. While the focal point of the group was unmistakably the sexy and hyperactive singer Gwen Stefani, the rest of the band had no problem keeping pace and laying down a party-hearty vibe. The band released a string of hit albums the included the 2003 Grammy-nominated ROCK STEADY, before Stefani went on to huge success as a solo artist and fashion designer. Though she never officially broke up No Doubt, Stefani would establish her brand as pop star well beyond the successes of her group.
