Today’s Flashback Friday is one that is pretty close to my heart!

No Doubt performed during the pre-show at the MTV Video Music Awards back on September 4, 1996 atop Radio City Music Hall in New York City. This was one of No Doubt’s first big televised performances and the first time I had ever seen or heard of the band. And it was love at first sight! I remember begging my mom for Tragic Kingdom right afterwards but she refused due to Gwen saying the “f word” during “Just a Girl” (I was only 11 at the time). But, I ended up getting the CD the next day! And the rest was history.

The band performed both “Just a Girl” and “Spiderwebs” on the program. Enjoy!
