Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers helped the band work in the studio on their first demo record. Although No Doubt is a group, Gwen has largely become the focus of the band with their rise to stardom. Her strength and freedom during live performances captivate many fans and allow them cross-gender appeal. Tony has said: "What's cool is that because we have a female singing, Gwen gets the girls into it, lets them participate.
With a lot of other bands, it's just a testosterone thing. But when you come to a No Doubt show, the audience is spread across the board. Gwen will definitely get the girls involved, give them songs that are their songs and it's their time to get boosted, be in the pit whatever.
Everyone feels like they're part of it, nobody gets left out. Following the release, the band toured extensively and focused on writing more songs. Although touring had gone well, sales of the LP did not, and their record company was not willing to fund another tour or LP. The band persevered and worked on their next release with their own funds. No Doubt released Beacon Street Collection which was re-issued in The LP was a raw expression of their sound, combing 80s punk with 90s grunge and consisting of song that weren't going to make their next release for the record company.
By this point, No Doubt also lost a member when Eric Stefani left the group to later work as an animator for The Simpsons. No Doubt released Tragic Kingdom and the band eventually began to take off. The first single " Just A Girl " was a modest pop hit and a much bigger hit on alternative radio and video channels.
The song showcased what has become No Doubt's commercial appeal: a naive-looking girl with a rough edge playing with a bunch a boys. Gwen said of the LP: "We went through some really bad times the past couple of years - personally and bandwise - and our whole way of dealing with that is humor and I think that's really apparent in the record.
Even though things may have been bad, and some of the songs are sad if you really listen to them, there's still an element of humor to it all. Tragic Kingdom was certified gold. No Doubt hit the Top 40 with " Spiderwebs. Tragic Kingdom was certified 2x platinum. No Doubt hit the Top 40 with " Don't Speak. No Doubt hit the Top 10 with " Don't Speak " - and ended the year hitting 1 where it stayed for 7 weeks. Tragic Kingdom was certified 5x platinum.
