Gwen and Tony are included on VH1’s list of the Top 50 Musical Muses citing the breakup that inspired the lyrics to “Don’t Speak”.

VH1Song: “Don’t Speak” (1996)
Artist: No Doubt
Musical Muse: Tony Kanal

Legendary frontwoman Gwen Stefani wrote this breakup song about her ex-boyfriend Kanal, who also happened to be her bandmate. We can’t imagine how awk this situation must have been for her — performing next to the guy who dumped you after seven years! — but at least it spawned one of the biggest smashes of the decade!—T.W.
