22nd Anniversary of Self Titled Album

album

Everyone at Beacon Street Online would like to wish and congratulate No Doubt on the 22nd anniversary of their debut album’s release, No Doubt. The album was released on this day back in 1992 and spawned such fan favorites as “Trapped In a Box”, “Get On The Ball”, “Let’s Get Back” and “Move On”.

No Doubt was originally recorded as an independent release but was later distributed by Interscope after the band was signed. Interscope though refused to support the band financially (due to lack of commercial success), so No Doubt put together their own money and released “Trapped In A Box” as their debut single. No Doubt also has to fund their own Fall tour in 1992 to promote the album.

Though the debut album ended up selling only 30,000 copies initially, it went on to sell over 250,000 copies due to the success of Tragic Kingdom. No Doubt is still treasured by fans all around the world and is a very important part of No Doubt history!

  1. My least favourite album, but I understand its importance. Is it bad that I prefer most of the unreleased songs than the ones included on the album? Where’s Your Lovin’, Bouncin’ Shoes, No Doubt, Show Off, Dear John are better songs.
    Of course I still have my favourites such as Move On, Get On The Ball or Let’s Get Back.

    1. I feel mostly the same. Some of their early demos (which are amazing by the way) I don’t think would have translated well into the glossy production the album has. I would do anything to have studio versions of “El Matador” and “Aladdin” (my two favorites!)

  2. My least favorite album too, but the songs are all fantastic live. Let’s Get Back, Move On, Get On The Ball…

  3. Yeah it’s also my least favorite album. I don’t really know why, though. I like most of the songs, but somehow I never feel like listening to it. Maybe I could enjoy it more, if ND finally released a remastered version of it. The audio quality of these songs hasn’t agred very well.

  4. I don’t think we’ll be getting a remastered version of this album tbh. I can see them doing that with the TK album, next year, for the 20th anniversary. Hopefully there will be an extra CD with some cool stuff.

  5. At least we can listen to the remastered version of TIA on the Singles album. That really improved the song, imo.
