I Know That Song! The One When No Doubt Almost Broke Up

Today's song was #1 from 1995.

This song is about the relationship this lead singer had with the band’s bassist for seven years. When it didn't work out it became hard for them to be in the same room. So before they recorded the video for the song they were talking about breaking up the band. The band stayed together but the relationship didn't work out.

She didn't give up on musicians though. She married Bush lead singer Gavin Rossdale in 2002; when they split in 2015, she took up with country star Blake Shelton, her co-star on the singing competition The Voice.

She wrote this song with her brother, Eric, before he left the band to take a job with The Simpsons as an animator. 

Thanks to this song, today’s band was nominated for Grammy Awards and an American Music Award, but didn't win. Their first trip to the podium came at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards, where this song won for Best Group Video. 

The first few seconds of this song sound very similar to "Dream On" by Aerosmith...see if you agree below.

This band got started in a Dairy Queen where the lead singer’s brother, the one who later became a Simpson’s animator, decided to team up with a co-worker and start a band. 

At that time, the lead singer who we all know now was just a back up singer in her BROTHER’S band.They practiced in their parents' garage and first performed at an Orange High School backyard graduation party on June 6, 1987 with two other California ska bands. 

All these years later, Lead singer Gwen says it was always confidence and the connection with the audience that makes the difference:
