TK20: ‘Tragic Kingdom’ 20th Anniversary Social Media Tributes

No Doubt’s iconic Tragic Kingdom celebrated it’s 20th anniversary on October 10 and special tributes popped up everywhere to pay homage to the album and the band.

Using the hashtag #TK20 (and we’re super excited that it became a thing!), No Doubt and fans posted stories and special tributes looking back at the album and the impact it made on them. We were touched by the band’s posts and they shared a bunch of photos and videos from the era and expressed how much the album changed all of their lives.

Tragic Kingdom also was a trending topic on Facebook as well as entering the Top 100 on iTunes 20 years later!

Also make sure to check out our special TK20 countdown feature that our graphic designer shared on Facebook.

#Regram @tomdumontnd On the 20th Anniversary of Tragic Kingdom —- At the time we were just a bunch of college friends doing what we loved, being in a band together, making songs, recording them, playing shows. Looking back, I remember the fun and the camaraderie, the energy and the friendship. For sure there were struggles as well, everything was not perfect. But what strikes me is that some magic, in the form of music, came out of the tragic. Adrian, Tony, Gwen, and I each put all of ourselves into that album. We crafted the sound of it together, we infused the music with our spirit, and Gwen discovered her own voice as a lyricist. Gwen’s brother Eric left the band before TK was released, but his contributions to both the band and album were significant as well. Our group effort manifested itself in the songs, which really connected with people & resonated around the world, and because of that our lives were forever changed. The whirlwind of world-touring and extensive promoting of Tragic Kingdom went on for two and a half years, and at the end of it we emerged, not only rock stars, but as men and women. @nodoubt #tk20

  1. Well it was kind of weird that Gwen didn’t post anything herself…I felt like she didn’t care? idk, I was expecting something from her…but anyway, I just love that album!!, Such a good one, although all the songs are fantastic my favorite one is Happy Now.
