No Doubt- Tragic Kingdom
United States- No Doubt may had the hit “Don’t Speak” from “Tragic Kingdom”, however, it failed to chart as it was not released with CD single. They only scored a single Hot 100 hit from the album with “Just a Girl” which peaked at number 23. The song was also a hit in rock charts by Billboard, making them one of the biggest bands at that time.
United Kingdom- No Doubt did very well in United Kingdom with their debut album there “Tragic Kingdom”. They had charted with four singles in the country and check what made to the desirable top 10 spots:
Don’t Speak- #1
Just a Girl- #3
No Doubt just scored two singles to reach the top 10 from “Tragic Kingdom”. At least, they already scored a number 1 single through the beautiful song “Don’t Speak”. The song’s success also sparked success and interest for the song “Just a Girl” which charted at number 3. “Spiderwebs” also charted and peaked inside the top 20 for reaching number 16. Their single “Sunday Morning” charted at number 50. Other singles were released too but failed to chart. Still, that year when No Doubt has been hitting the UK charts, they were the top non-British band. They had been hitting the rock radio stations well.
I love No Doubt with their breakthrough album for the song “Don’t Speak”. The song was admitted by Gwen Stefani, the vocalist of No Doubt, that the song was about her ex and still a friend and bandmate Tony Kanal. Good to know they remained good friends in spite of anything. “Just a Girl” may be a hit but still a great song. However, I would be sharing “Don’t Speak” as it is also an international number 1 hit. I knew many love this song too and I am going to share that song below:
