Up next, we’re curious which track from No Doubt’s masterpiece of an album, Return of Saturn, do you find most underrated? Return of Saturn came out on top as the fan’s favorite album in recent poll and some of the songs on the album rank as some of the band’s strongest to date. Which ones do you feel didn’t get the recognition they deserve?
Return of Saturn was released back in 2000 and it debuted at #2 on the Billboard charts. With over dozens of songs recorded for the album, a select and special fourteen were featured including “Ex-Girlfriend”, “Simple Kind of Life”, “Bathwater”, “Magic’s In The Makeup” and “New”. No Doubt hit the road before and after the album’s release for a full fledged tour in which they performed and treated fans to their new material live (with the exception of “Dark Blue”).
Several notable B-sides were released alongside the album on singles and deluxe editions such as “Big Distraction”, “Full Circle”, “Cellophane Boy” and “Beauty Contest” (which we’ll include in a another poll soon).
Most notable tracks: “New”, “Ex-Girlfriend”, “Simple Kind of Life”, “Bathwater”
For our next series of polls, weâ€™re curious which song from each of No Doubtâ€™s albums do you find the most underrated. Weâ€™re trying to put together a comprehensive list of the bandâ€™s best â€œunheardâ€ and overlooked tracks â€” and because it sounds like a fun topic to discuss!
Weâ€™re not asking fans to necessarily vote for their favorite songs or the â€œhitsâ€, but which tracks are most overlooked and what they would like to see the band revisit. Some material has yet to be performed at all really (i.e. â€œDark Blueâ€, â€œWorld Go â€˜Roundâ€, â€œWaiting Roomâ€, most of Push and Shove) which, in our opinion, deserves a chance to be heard live. Butâ€¦ we are also saying that some of these tracks may not be considered as strong as some either.
We hope to have new polls up every few days in the next couple of weeks for each album. Once all of the votes are tallied, weâ€™ll put together a massive post with the top picks. After submitting your vote, please feel free to leave a comment and let us know why you picked which track â€” weâ€™re wanting to include comments from our visitors in the results post. If this is successful, we also plan on holding a â€œtournamentâ€ of sorts to find out which the top No Doubt songs of all-time are.
