Stand and Deliver

Song: Stand and Deliver
Artist: No Doubt
Album: Stand and Deliver

While a new album isn’t slated until 2010, No Doubt have reunited for a summer tour this year. To kick it off they have done a stint on “Gossip Girl” as part of an 80’s flashback performing Adam Ant’s “Stand and Deliver.” While this isn’t really huge news, their cover actually has a lot of grit and shows just how different the bands sound is versus the dance-pop that Gwen is known for solo.

I’m not really a big ska fan, so initially when No Doubt hit the scene I cared very little. (Also, I grew to HATE “Don’t Speak” when it was a hit.) But as the band got bigger in popularity I thought they became a better band, and Gwen a better songwriter. That said, I thought their last full length record, 2001’s “Rock Steady” was by far the best, and “Stand and Deliver” really gets me excited to hear new music from the band.
