Up next, we’re curious which track from No Doubt’s independent release, The Beacon Street Collection, do you find most underrated. Since the Tragic Kingdom tour wrapped up in 1997, the band has strayed away from the album (like most old-school material) but always seem to impress and surprise with “Total Hate” after all these years.
The Beacon Street Collection, which recently celebrated it’s 20th anniversary of the original release, was recorded and released initially under the band’s own label, Beacon Street Records. The album was sold by the band at shows and became an underground hit in Orange County. Interscope ended up re-releasing the album under itâ€™s name on October 21, 1997 after the success of Tragic Kingdom. The album has always been a personal favorite of ours (hence the namesake of the site) and for fans all over the world that included favorites â€œTotal Hate â€™95â€, â€œStrickenâ€, â€œGreener Pasturesâ€, â€œBy The Wayâ€ and â€œSquealâ€.
Most notable tracks: “Total Hate ’95”, “Greener Pastures”, “By The Way”, “Squeal”
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.
