For our next series of polls, we’re curious which song from each of No Doubt’s albums do you find the most underrated. We’re trying to put together a comprehensive list of the band’s best “unheard” and overlooked tracks — and because it sounds like a fun topic to discuss!
We’re not asking fans to necessarily vote for their favorite songs or the “hits”, 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. “Dark Blue”, “World Go ‘Round”, “Waiting Room”, most of Push and Shove) which, in our opinion, deserves a chance to be heard live. But… 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, we’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 — we’re wanting to include comments from our visitors in the results post. If this is successful, we also plan on holding a “tournament” of sorts to find out which the top No Doubt songs of all-time are.
No Doubt was originally recorded as an independent release but was later distributed by Interscope after the band was signed. Interscope though refused to support the band financially (due to lack of commercial success), so No Doubt put together their own money and released â€œTrapped In A Boxâ€ as their debut single. No Doubt also had to fund their own fall U.S. tour in 1992 to promote the album.
Though the debut album ended up selling only 30,000 copies initially, it went on to sell over 250,000 copies due to the success of Tragic Kingdom. Most of the album could be considered “underrated” due to it’s limited promotion.
Most notable tracks: “Let’s Get Back”, “Get On The Ball”, “Move On”, “Trapped In A Box”
Interludes and instrumentals have been omitted from the poll. Thank you for voting! Please leave in the comments below what you voted for and why.
