No Doubt - No Doubt

No Doubt : Rock Steady

Reinvention, of a kind, from Stefani and crew...

After years of being in No Doubt , the last five spent enjoying cred-free superstardom, 2001 saw frontwoman and band face Gwen Stefani indulging in a little reinvention. Nothing fundamental, just a couple of unexpected collaborations and a 50s-sex-siren-gone-hip-hop new look. Her stadium-pop reworking of Modjo 's 'Southside' passed unnoticed this side of the pond, but her...

No Doubt - No Doubt: Wikipedia Album Entry

No Doubt is the self-titled debut studio album by the American third wave ska band No Doubt, released March 17, 1992 on Interscope Records. The album was originally recorded as an independent release, but was re-recorded after the band was signed to Interscope. It was produced by Dito Godwin and recorded in a recording studio in Los Angeles.

The album was released during a period in which the USA was mainly focused on grunge music, an angst-ridden genre that was almost the complete opposite of No Doubt's upbeat commercial sound. Despite strong tours, the album failed to perform as well as the record company expected it to, selling only 30,000 copies. The record company refused to fund the release of a single from it, so No Doubt released the album's only single, Trapped In A Box, independently.

The album's failure to chart ultimately lead to Interscope refusing to finance another album. Instead, the band independently produced its second album, The Beacon Street Collection, which performed much better than its debut, selling 100,000 copies and ensuring that Interscope financed and supported their third album, Tragic Kingdom.
