No Doubt

No Doubt is an American rock band from Anaheim, California, that formed in 1986. Since 1995, the group has consisted of vocalist Gwen Stefani, guitarist and keyboardist Tom Dumont, bassist and keyboardist Tony Kanal, and drummer Adrian Young. Since the mid-1990s in live performances they have been 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's next album, Return of Saturn (2000), despite the Top 40 hit single "Simple Kind of Life", did not match the success of their previous but received critical praise and was nominated for Best Rock Album at the 43rd Grammy Awards. Fifteen 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. After a 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, titled Push and Shove (2012), and released their single "Settle Down". They have sold over 33 million albums worldwide.

Kanal, born and raised in England until he was about eleven, played the saxophone before the bass.
The first song Young learned to drum along with was "The Wild Flower" by The Cult.
Dumont was a heavy metal guitarist in his sister's band, Rising, before joining No Doubt.
The first record that Kanal bought with his own money was Men at Work's Business As Usual. Now he is a huge Prince fan.
Before hitting it big, all the members had day jobs. Gwen Stefani and Kanal were salespeople in the same department store, Young waited tables at a steakhouse, and Dumont ran a music equipment rental business.
Original No Doubt frontman John Spence committed suicide on December 21, 1987. They took their name from one of his favorite sayings.
All members are college-educated. Dumont majored in music, Gwen Stefani majored in art, and Young and Kanal in psychology.
Original keyboardist Eric Stefani, in addition to being Gwen's older brother, left the band before the release of Tragic Kingdom to be an animator on The Simpsons.
Dumont, who lives in Southern California with the rest of the band, is an avid surfer.
For a short time in the early 1990s, Young took drumming classes at Fullerton Junior College in California.
Kanal and Stefani were a couple for 8 years. Gwen was so in love with him, she used to drive across town when she was in high school just to look at him.
Stefani is married to Gavin Rossdale of Bush. They met when No Doubt was opening for Bush on their 1995 tour.
Adrian Young was a fan before becoming a member. He also lied to help get into the band, when they were auditioning him he told them he had been playing drums for eight years, when he had been playing for only a year and a half.
Gwen Stefani's nickname is Sunshine.
Stefani is dyslexic. She repeated a year of school high.
Gwen joined her high school swim team because she was chubby. Since she swam so much, she was also nicknamed "frog."
Gwen had a dog named Magan, who's nickname was little Lamb, which is were Gwen's clothing line name came from. Gwen would die her dog's hair to mach her own.
Before their breakthrough album Tragic Kingdom was released, they were on the first Warped tour in 1995. Sublime and L7 were also on that tour.
