For this week’s edition of Song Saturday, we’re featuring a fan request! We’re looking back at “Hateful”, No Doubt’s beloved cover from The Clash tribute album, Burning London, released on March 16, 1999.
Written by Joe Strummer and Mick Jones, No Doubt paid homage in a straight-forward and horn-infused cover which also featured rocker Billy Idol on vocals along with Gwen. “Hateful” kicked off the tribute album and was a notable highlight.
According to the tribute album’s Wikipedia, “portion of the proceeds from the sales of Burning London will benefit the High Risk Youth Program of the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.”
The album included a new photo of No Doubt behind the disc portion.
Thank you to Cynthia for sending in the request!
