No Doubt Biography
"No Doubt" is an American rock band from Anaheim, California, formed in 1986. The ska-pop sound of their first album, "No Doubt" (1992), failed to make waves. The band's diamond-certified album "Tragic Kingdom" helped to launch the ska revival of the 1990s, and "Don't Speak," the third single from the album, set a record when it spent sixteen weeks at the number one spot on the "Billboard" Hot 100 Airplay chart.
The group released its next album, "Return of Saturn," four years later, but despite positive reviews the album was considered a commercial failure. Fifteen months later, the band reappeared with "Rock Steady," 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".
No Doubt released the compilation "The Singles 1992–2003" and box set "Boom Box" in 2003, both of which contained a cover version of the Talk Talk synthpop song "It's My Life". Frontwoman Gwen Stefani launched her solo career the next year with several collaborations, including bandmate Tony Kanal as well as Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes, while guitarist Tom Dumont began his side project, Invincible Overlord. During its career, the band has won two Grammy Awards and sold 28 million records worldwide to date. The band embarked on a US national tour throughout the summer of 2009.
