No Doubt was one of my two favorite bands in high school (the other being Weezer). Rock Steady has been in my car CD rotation ever since, "Just a Girl" was a long time personal anthem, and I swear I wore out the Singles CD before I'd turned 15. I finally got to see them live a few years back, and it was one of the most amazing shows I've ever been to.
So yeah, I was a little excited for the new single:
It's very them. It's got the Caribbean influences, the Japanese style, so much color and personality. This is the sort of thing that will grow on me, though I must admit I'm mostly just crossing my fingers for any reason for them to tour.
And damn, Stefani. I only hope I look that good at 42.
