Formed in 1986 in Anaheim, California, United States as a ska punk band inspired by Madness, the lineup of No Doubt initially comprised John Spence as lead vocal, Gwen Stefani on back-up vocal, and Eric Stefani on keyboards. While playing the party-band circuit around Anaheim, the trio picked up bassist Tony Kanal. Hardened by the suicide of Spence in December 1987, No Doubt nevertheless continued; Gwen became the lone vocalist and the group added guitarist Tom Dumont and drummer Adrian Young. During their early years on the party scene, they played with Sublime, and Brad Nowell sang on No Doubt's Total Hate 95.
Thoughts on Songs with No Doubt
There's no new person that comes and takes her place. It's really herself. There's a growing or a simple change or shift in the personality and one day she wakes up and realizes that she's not the same person anymore. She's changed and now is someone with more attitude.
"Rock Steady" refers to the steadiness in love. After the "passion" time has passed, then there's this calm side and many couples are afraid about that time and going against it. Like, can we actually survive the first years as a couple? and that's when the actual love is tested, that's why it says "a real love survives."
