Up next, we’re curious which song from No Doubt’s biggest album to date, Tragic Kingdom, do you find the most underrated? Almost (if not all of the album) is recognizable to most fans, so which track do you feel hasn’t received enough recognition over the years?
Tragic Kingdom went on to sell over 16 million copies worldwide, hitting #1 all over the world and staying on top of the Billboard charts for weeks that spawned some of the bandâ€™s biggest hits to date including â€œDonâ€™t Speakâ€, â€œJust a Girlâ€, â€œSunday Morningâ€ and â€œSpiderwebsâ€. The album hit #1 in the US in December 1996, almost a full year after the album was domestically released.
In our past fan favorites poll, the album also came out on top. Fans voted the Tragic Kingdom era the top era that gained the most fans, the top tour that fans would love to revisit, the bandâ€™s best style, and the fanâ€™s second favorite album (closely behind Return of Saturn). Fans also voted â€œSunday Morningâ€ as their favorite single from the album.
Tragic Kingdom is set to celebrate it’s 20th anniversary this year and the band still treats fans to goodies from the album such as “Hey You”, “Different People”, “Happy Now?” and “End It On This” live occasionally. No Doubt also re-worked “Excuse Me Mr.” into an unexpected rad slow reggae-jam on their 2009 summer tour.
Most notable tracks: “Spiderwebs”, “Just a Girl”, “Sunday Morning”, “Don’t Speak”
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.
