No Doubt Inspired By 1980’s: The Album They Should Make

No Doubt reunited in 2008 after a four year hiatus but minus a measly tour their reformation has been devoid of new material. That is until now.

The band has been working on a new album for a while (since 2008) but it appears they have finally discovered a muse.

“The last few weeks we’ve been listening to the worst of the 80s, in the sense of bad but good,” explained front woman Gwen Stefani.

“Pop songs, one-hit wonders, nifty songs, things like that. You just go back and find things that you love, and try to figure out how they made them.”

Wasn’t No Doubt always remaking bad 1980’s music?

It unclear if N.D. is going to release a cover album of bad 80’s tune, or just make an album inspired by bad 80’s music. And don’t forget the band had been working on some tracks not in the 80’s vain back when Stefani was preggers.

“They were doing stuff before, but things are kind of starting over, you know what I mean?”

Haven’t a clue.

“We might re-visit some of that stuff, but it’s the same old chase. It doesn’t matter how we get there – we want to get there, we will, and we’re having fun doing it.”

Land of Punt would pay money to hear a No Doubt album composed entirely of 1980’s covers. LOP likes the idea so much we’ve complied a track listing. Below are 20 songs from the 1980’s LOP would like to hear No Doubt cover…
