2nd Anniversary of Push and Shove


Today marks the second anniversary of No Doubt’s latest album, Push and Shove! It was released on this day back in 2012 and spawned the singles “Settle Down”, “Push and Shove” and “Looking Hot”.

Push and Shove debuted with impressive numbers at #3 on the Billboard charts and was promoted with highly anticipated performances at the Teen Choice Awards, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Good Morning America. While No Doubt have yet to tour the album, the band held a special string of shows at the former Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles in late 2012 where they debuted a few more tracks from the album live for the lucky concert goers.

No Doubt announced in January 2013 that they were shifting from promoting the album to new material in the following months.

Now that fans have had more time with the album, which track is your favorite?

  1. ” Settle Down “for me because rock, fun, not too flat, not too in the air, not too arrogant like “looking hot”.

  2. I probably will be the only one but Heaven has become my favourite track. Its funny cause at first I didnt like it too much but now I find it the most fresh sounding song on the album.

  3. And can I just say the promotion on this album was god awful? They didnt release the second single looking hot (which was a poor single choice) until november while settle down was released back in july…no wonder the sales dropped massively after the first week!

  4. I just can’t believe it’s been two years already… This album still feels so “new” like didn’t I just get it? I still like most of the songs. To this day I never really got into “Gravity”, though. P&S, OMS, DTSD are still amazing and I also really like “Sparkle”, “Easy” and “Undercover”. Too bad single choices were so unfortunate. Maybe things would’ve been different, if P&S was the first single followed by OMS. LH never should have been a single imho. It’s an okay song, but it’s far from being single material. Should’ve stayed an album track.

  5. P&S is an album studio very “in the air” but maybe not adapted to be on stage because of it ?
    So if not success on stage, then not sales in stores, …etc ?
    So flop ?

  6. i don’t care what everyone says I love this album!!! its not TK, its not ROS, and its not Rocksteady. I love it for it flaws and imperfections because much like previous efforts, the serve as a soundtrack to my life lol… I love settle down, push and shove, easy, undercover and one more summer!!! Its rare that i would like more than 3 tracks in a album and No Doubt always delivers for me. Too bad we didn’t get to see them perform these songs live on tour ;(

  7. If i well understood the meaning of “Looking Hot “, it’s so auto-satisfied and arrogant especially for a comeback in musical industry after a long hiatus ?
    LH doesn’t look like to Gwen ! Maybe LH should never have come out ? !

    Gwen has received a slap on her ass with P&S !

  8. I love this album. Possibly my 3rd favourite No Doubt album. It’s a very solid album, even though I feel like it needed at least 1 more track from Major Lazer to make it more consistent. The tracks I’m obsessed with right now are Undone and Easy. They’re wasted single opportunities imo. I could live without Gravity tbh. I wish we could listen to the darkish version. I have the feeling it might sound better.
    Top favourites are P&S (the song), Looking Hot, Settle Down, Easy, Undone and DTSD.

  9. i think, we love too much Gwen and No Doubt to be honest and rude !?

    Two or three albums like P&S, then only fans will buy albums !?

  10. Frederic, I think you should stop assuming and speak on behalf of another fans. I honestly love Push and Shove album. If you don’t like it, then it’s your problem, not mine. And I don’t see Looking Hot as an “arrogant” song. Ok lyrics aren’t that deep but the song has more meaning that you actually think.

  11. I really wish the members of No Doubt perform Dreaming the Same Dream in some live venue…that song is killer and it is meant to be heard and seen live!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. I agree with you too Lisa. I didn’t like Heaven at first, but now I love it and I think it should have been a single. It may not be their best album, but I have come to really enjoy it! It bums me out that we may never hear most of these songs live since it was never given a proper tour.

  13. I immediately loved this album and still do. I don’t like all the songs but to be honest that’s the case with every ND album. My biggest issue is the production, but the song writing is just great.
    Dreaming the same dream would be killer live! Huge!

  14. The songwriting was great in most cases (exceptions: Undone, the chorus of Easy)
    The production was the issue. They made potentially amazing songs sound inexplicably vanilla, with airbrushing and overproduction better suited for Katy Perry or Pink.
    What surprised me also about this album was how he ska sound was absent in favor of insipid ”new wave”. Mike Stent was obviously to blame, the weird thing is that he had worked with the band on Rock Steady, that despite having a more electro-pop sound, did not sound this corny Maybe they should have gone for more Major Lazer tracks. as NDLover said.
