Rolling Stone magazine have recently named No Doubt’s “Hey Baby” one of the most stylish VMA-nominated videos ever! The band actually won two awards for “Hey Baby” back in 2002 at the VMAs for Best Pop Video and Best Group Video. It’s awesome and so true that this video will continue to live on as being one the best!
Rolling Stone — No Doubt, ‘Hey Baby’ (2001)
Wherein a 32-year-old Gwen Stefani tries on dancehall, houndstooth, grafitti, fishnet, and pigtails for size â€” and pulls it off with charm. No Doubt quickly brushed off the dismaying chart performance of 2000’s Return of Saturn by releasing Rock Steady, a hedonistic record fueled by their recent obsession with Jamaican party music, Prince, and U.K. electropop. To suit the sound overhaul, the band’s image had to undergo its own makeover. The result was dizzying: customized band logos (influenced by the graffiti of Stephen Sprouse), houndstooth and argyle patterns (a nod to British mod and Two-tone prep), and a ton of red, yellow, and green (traditional Rasta hues) swiftly defined the look of No Doubt in their feel-good renaissance. All motifs are present and accounted for in “Hey Baby,” the band’s comeback single and video, which won two VMAs in 2002 for Best Pop and Best Group Video.
