No Doubt – It’s My Life

No Doubt is an American rock band from Anaheim, California, that formed in 1986 consisting of vocalist Gwen Stefani, guitarist Tom Dumont, bassist Tony Kanal, and drummer Adrian Young. Since 1995, following the departures of keyboardist Eric Stefani and the band’s horn section, they have been supported by keyboardist and trumpeter Stephen Bradley and keyboardist and trombonist Gabrial McNair in live performances. The ska sound of their first album No Doubt (1992) failed to make an impact. The Beacon Street Collection (1995) is a raw expression of their sound, inspired by ska punk and released independently by the band under their own record label. The album sold over 100,000 copies in 1995, over three times as many as their first album sold. The band’s diamond-certified album Tragic Kingdom (1995) helped launch the third-wave ska revival of the 1990s, and „Don’t Speak“, the third single from the album, set a record when it spent 16 weeks at the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart.

It’s My Life“ is a song by the British synthpop band Talk Talk. Written by Mark Hollis and Tim Friese-Greene, it was the title track on the band’s second album and released as its first single in January 1984. It reached #46 in the UK charts, but did better in several other countries, reaching #33 in Germany, #32 in New Zealand, #25 in France and #7 in Italy; and was also a success in North America, entering the Top 40 in both US and Canada (peaking notably at #1 in the Hot Dance Club Play).

No Doubt recorded a cover version of the song to promote their greatest hits album The Singles 1992–2003. Because the band was on hiatus, while lead singer Gwen Stefani recorded her solo debut album Love. Angel. Music. Baby., they decided to record a cover to avoid having to write a new song. The band listened to hundreds of songs and narrowed it down to „It’s My Life“ and INXS‘ 1982 song „Don’t Change“. No Doubt were dubious about recording a cover and contemplated writing new material. However, they decided on „It’s My Life“ after rehearsing the song with producer Nellee Hooper, referring to it as a „feel good“ song. The song was nominated for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal at the 47th Grammy Awards.

Tony Ashwin Kanal (born on August 27, 1970) is a British-born American musician, record producer and songwriter. Kanal is the bassist for the American rock band No Doubt. His musical work outside of the band includes producing and songwriting with artists such as reggae singer Elan Atias and No Doubt bandmate Gwen Stefani, among others.
