    Finally, after months and months of delay, here it is: The No Doubt discography rate!

    For such a legendary band, it really took me by a surprise that it took so many years until No Doubt having its own rate. The closest we got to ever getting one is when @Babylon hosted combined singles rate with Gwen Stefani. So, a full discography rate for a band that pretty much ruled the world at one point and spawned one of the most monumental popstars of the 00’s is definitely overdue and it’s quite an honour for me to be the one hosting it.

    From the awkward octet trying to stand out in the crowd and properly get started in the music business, to the global superstars with further ventures, we’re going to discuss No Doubt’s history, music, reaching into every nook and cranny of the little known fun facts/trivia and, simultaneously, find out which are their least and most loved songs. This is a place to celebrate the music they created, make discoveries and have fun, of course.
    And since the general awesomeness of the band and their music will be mentioned numerous times throughout this thread, let’s get onto the rate-related stuff.


    There are 100 songs split into 7 sections: six of them are based on the album they were recorded/intended for, as well as extra section featuring the oddities (i.e. stand alone releases, compilation songs, demos and such).

    Listen and rate all songs from 1 to 10.

    Decimal scores are allowed, no matter how many decimal places (but don’t go too crazy with them). I like tiebreakers, though the conventional half and quarter points are also very welcome.

    You can award one 11 to a song you think deserves that score. On the other hand, you can give one 0. Neither are a necessity.

    Commentary isn’t obligatory, but is greatly encouraged, especially when it's meaningful. They are always a great read, so at least try to scribble something for your 11 (or 0). On the other hand, if you prefer commenting on most of the songs during the eliminations, you are free do it that way.

    In cases when there are multiple versions of the song that the band recorded, you are allowed to rate preferred version of the song, as long as it's officially released.

    PM me your scores. So-called ‘troll’ scores won’t be accepted.

    This is more of a note, but given that that I handpicked a few songs (marked as 'demos') that weren't officially released in a commercial way, I wouldn't necessarily call them obligatory. However, since you've managed to rate 97 songs, rating three more should be nothing.

    Voting deadline: May 11th at 23:59 GMT

  4. Reserved just in case


    You can post now!​
  5. Ooooh does every era have a symbol?
  6. Excited! I'll be starting this soon! Thanks for hosting @Maki
  7. Very ready for this! I love nearly all of their singles but haven't actually listened to a few of the albums, so looking forward to finally doing that.
  8. I'm looking forward to this!
  9. Voting is now officially open!

    The Spotify playlist, created by my dear back-up host @Sprockrooster, and the YouTube playlist are now linked in the second post.
    Also, the Spotify playlist is missing about 10 songs, but Sprocky made sure to point them out.
  10. 100 videos in the YouTube playlist?? I had no idea their career was that extensive - my first discovery about them I guess ddd
  11. Well, they did release six albums and have been around for over 30 years now, it's not exactly surprising dd
  12. I love how balanced the picks are in the poll for the albums that did get a vote. To me there is no clear standout also. I do hope the debut albums d get a vote too though it is unlikely. They are hardly faves of mine either.
    Remorque, Maki, berserkboi and 2 others like this.
  13. Yeah, that's pretty cool. It will be interesting to see how the eventual ranking by album averages is going to compare to the poll results.

    The first tagging spree should occur in a few hours.
  14. I don't know even know half the material and I thought I knew more of their music and that I do know I haven't revisited in quite some time, in most cases. I'll definitely be voting though because I need to say I've listened to their full discography if I'm ever going to call myself a pop-rock stan.
  15. I don't know a lot of their material but I'm looking forward to listening to them more over the next month. I've always meant to get into them more and this is the kick up the backside I needed. I listened to some of Rock Steady in preparation a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it. I own Push & Shove.
  16. I’ll finally give the first two albums a listen. I’ve never felt like going back to them even over the last few months when I’ve been in a big Gwen + No Doubt phase, so this should be interesting.
  17. Glad to hear some of you are willing to check out all of their music! There are definitely great discoveries awaiting to happen, so I guarantee it will worth it.

    Yes, that was kind of the idea to be this rate's "trademark". Hopefully the symbol choices somewhat make sense.
  18. Tagging spree is coming!
