Don't Speak

Don't Speak by No Doubt was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, February 22, 1997 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Gwen Stefani wrote this song with her brother, Eric Stefani, before he left the band - originally it was a love song. After Tony Kanal dumped Gwen, it became a song about heartbreak. After No Doubt played this on Saturday Night Live on December 7, 1996, Tragic Kingdom went to #1 and stayed there for nine weeks. This was never released as a single, but it helped Tragic Kingdom sell approximately 15 million copies, which was their record company's intention. Billboard's rules at the time precluded any song not released as a single from the Hot 100, but on their Airplay chart, the song stayed at #1 for 16 weeks. This won No Doubt their first video award, the Best Group Video at the MTV Video Music Awards. It was also the first of several No Doubt videos directed by Sophie Muller.
