Finally, we’re wrapping our set of polls asking fans which songs are the band’s most underrated from each album. We’re curious which of No Doubt’s B-sides and/or unreleased track do you feel like should have been given more attention or should have made the respected album. To make this list, these songs must have been officially released and are considered “leftover” tracks that didn’t make the album — meaning tracks like “Sailin’ On” don’t count because it debuted on a compilation before it’s release on the “Spiderwebs” Australian import single. Alternate and live versions of released songs have also been excluded from the poll.
Most of these tracks were released on the band’s rarities and b-sides album Everything In Time in 2003. Older songs like “My Room Is Still Clean” and “You Can’t Teach An Ol’ Dog New Tricks” were released exclusively on vinyl and are typically only found floating around the internet for fans to enjoy.
Most notable tracks: “Beauty Contest”, “Full Circle”, “You’re So Foxy”, “New Friend”
We would love to send a huge THANK YOU to everyone that has participated and commented on these polls! It’s been fun discussing each album and giving fans a good reason to go back and rediscover No Doubt’s catalog and maybe find some new favorite songs. We plan to have an in-depth post in the next week going over the full results with the two top underrated tracks highlighted from each album.
We also encourage fans to vote in the other polls if you haven’t had a chance yet!
Vote in the previous polls:
– Most underrated song from Push and Shove?
– Most underrated song from Rock Steady?
– Most underrated song from Return of Saturn?
– Most underrated song from Tragic Kingdom?
– Most underrated song from The Beacon Street Collection?
– Most underrated song from No Doubt?
For our next series of polls, weâ€™re curious which song from each of No Doubtâ€™s albums do you find the most underrated. Weâ€™re trying to put together a comprehensive list of the bandâ€™s best â€œunheardâ€ and overlooked tracks â€” and because it sounds like a fun topic to discuss!
Weâ€™re not asking fans to necessarily vote for their favorite songs or the â€œhitsâ€, but which tracks are most overlooked and what they would like to see the band revisit. Some material has yet to be performed at all really (i.e. â€œDark Blueâ€, â€œWorld Go â€˜Roundâ€, â€œWaiting Roomâ€, most of Push and Shove) which, in our opinion, deserves a chance to be heard live. Butâ€¦ we are also saying that some of these tracks may not be considered as strong as some either.
We hope to have new polls up every few days in the next couple of weeks for each album. Once all of the votes are tallied, weâ€™ll put together a massive post with the top picks. After submitting your vote, please feel free to leave a comment and let us know why you picked which track â€” weâ€™re wanting to include comments from our visitors in the results post. If this is successful, we also plan on holding a â€œtournamentâ€ of sorts to find out which the top No Doubt songs of all-time are.
