"South Side"

Listen to Moby and Gwen on the song "South Side". The song will be released to radio on October 9th.

September 28, 2000: "Bathwater" single
from Take40.com

BathwaterNo Doubt is featured artist on Take40.com and there is some info on the site about No Doubt like a biography, tours, interview in audio, top 5 facts and downloads, but the most important is the discography, which already inludes a cover picture of the single "Bathwater". It is a picture from the "Return of Saturn" booklet. Because Take40.com is an Australian site it must be the cover of the Australian "Bathwater" single.


September 27, 2000: "Bathwater" single

The single "Bathwater" will come out in the first 2 weeks of October and will contain the following songs:

1. Bathwater
2. Beauty Contest
3. Under Construction
4. Ex-Girlfriend - live

September 26, 2000: "Bathwater" video

"Bathwater" didn't premiere on TRL last night, but they will show it if everybody votes for it. The video is also playing on VH1 now. There is a 30 second clip on MTV, you can watch it here.

September 25, 2000: Australian "Bathwater" release
from HMV.com

"Bathwater" will be released in Austrialia on October 3.

September 23, 2000: Bathwater premiere
from nodoubt.com

"Bathwater" will premiere on MTV's TRL, Monday September 25.

Madonna's record release party
from KROQ.com

When Madonna throws a party, everybody comes. No Doubt's Gwen Stefani and Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine were among the 600-plus guests spotted Tuesday night at a party hosted by Madonna to celebrate her just-released album, "Music."
For the party, Stefani traded in her favorite fashion accessory, boyfriend Bush singer Gavin Rossdale, for another guy. Stefani made the scene with Guy Oseary, an executive at the Madonna-owned label, Maverick Records, which immediately set tongues wagging that she and Rossdale have called it quits. Stay tuned.

September 22, 2000: MADtv

No Doubt performed "Bathwater" and "Staring Problem" at the taping of Fox's MADtv yesterday in Los Angeles. They did Bathwater twice. The fact that they played "Staring Problem" could mean that this is going to be the next single after "Bathwater". I'm not saying it IS, but it could be. The show will be on Fox October 7 at 11:00 PM.

from VH1.com

Go to VH1.com to see a video clip of the original "Don't Speak" from the Storytellers performance. Storytellers will air this Saturday and will be repeated 3 times, so you can't miss it! (see Appearances).


Appearantly, Gwen went to the record release party of Madonna's new album in Los Angeles. If any of the other bandmembers were there is not known.


After 22 weeks "Return of Saturn" drops out of the Billboard 200.
09/30/00 - this info was not correct, they dropped below postition 100

September 20, 2000: Bathwater premiere

I just finished listening to No Doubt's chat on MSN.com and it was very funny. The most important thing is that Gwen said: "Look out for our new video that will premiere this Monday". I guess this means that the video can be seen on MTV and another music stations starting Monday.

VH1 MusicAwards

No Doubt is already listed as a nominee in the categories "2 for 2", "Group of the Year", "Best Live Act" and "Giving it Back". Suggest Gwen as a nominee in the "Woman of the Year" category and suggest my site as "Coolest Fan Website" (please :).

from no-doubt.net

"No Doubt performed "Bathwater" on Farmclub.com last Tuesday night (August 29). Green Day came out first and did five songs or so, and then No Doubt came out. The band played the intro to the song and right before Gwen sang, "You, and your museum...", something happened to Tom's guitar! So they fixed the problem, and did the song over again from the top. After No Doubt was Mandy Moore. Adrian had little baby devil horns again and they were colored red. Gwen was wearing jeans and she was wearing the same top she wore for the cover of RETURN OF SATURN. She also had on this really pretty jean jacket that had a lot of studs on it and it was painted with nice designs all over with white paint and it was very pretty on the back. Her sleeves had stars on them. Her hair was mostly all platinum blonde again except in the middle, but it was a VERY faded pink, and the tips in the back were black. Tom wore all black and he had on some glasses too. Tony wore a black shirt that read NASTY on it in red. They all looked great and the show rocked!"

Gwen's hair
For those of you who didn't know, Gwen's hair is back to blonde again (too bad for those with a pink No Doubt website :-)
