Throwback Thursday: Two Decades of No Doubt in Photos
The SoCal ska-punk vets' breakthrough album 'Tragic Kingdom' turns 18 years old today -- old enough to vote and go to college! In honor of the occasion, check out 22 vintage photos of Gwen and the gang from the glory days
We can barely even recognize the sweet young faces in this photo! But it warms our little hearts that 20+ years later, Tony, Gwen, Adrian and Tom are still thick as thieves.

One of No Doubt's first performances was at a "Clean & Sober Beach Party" event at Newport Beach in 1989. Kind of awesome, if you ask us.

This shot was snapped during rehearsals for the 1996 MTV Video Music Awards, at which No Doubt turned out an unforgettable performance of "Spiderwebs" on the roof of Radio City Music Hall.
A young No Doubt backstage at the KROQ Weenie Roast = a perfect portrait of Southern California in the 1990s. Other headliners that year included Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Fugees, Everclear and Garbage.
No Doubt were nominated for Best New Artist and Best Rock Album at the 1997 Grammy Awards. Alhough they didn't win, they still introduced themselves to the world with a killer performance of "Spiderwebs."
Tony, Adrian, Gwen, and Tom (plus part time instrumentalists Stephen Bradley and Gabrial McNair) scored their first VMA ever for "Don't Speak" in 1997. Little did they know, there would be more where that came from.
No Doubt will be damned if they let a Grammy invitation stop them from dressing like their wild selves.
The 1998 Video Music Awards saw Gwen in one of her most iconic ensembles of all time, which we are STILL seeing incantations of in fashion today. Even more impressive than a moon man, don't you think?
Gwen and Adrian both matched their hair to their outfits at the 1st Annual ARTISTDirect Online Music Awards in 1999. ("Online Music" was a novelty back then, kids.)

The 11th Annual Billboard Music Awards saw Gwen and the boys looking like bona fide rock stars. Nice devil horns, Adrian.

Despite all being over 30, No Doubt looked like the coolest kids in school at the 2nd Annual Teen Choice Awards.
The band (plus Gavin Rossdale!) rolled up to the 43rd Annual Grammy Awards looking fresh out of a 1950's prom night, with drinks in hand. Cheers!
No Doubt wasn't nominated for any VMA's in 2001, but the boys came along to root for Gwen, who got nods for her hit features with Eve and Moby that year.

The band was in classic form at the 2001 Billboard Music Awards: Gwen being a total babe, Tony being broody and mysterious, and Adrian being, well, Adrian.

Best Mardi Gras party ever? The No Doubt crew celebrated with OutKast in New Orleans.
Just because you're not nominated for an award doesn't mean you shouldn't show up and show out. No Doubt hit the Grammy red carpet looking fun and fabulous as ever. Adrian even accessorized with a drink.
Just off the heels of their 'Rock Steady' release, No Doubt headed to the VMAs and took home two moonmen for the video for "Hey Baby."

The band dropped by MTV for the 1000th episode of TRL (R.I.P.)
No Doubt won the Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for their killer 'Rock Steady' single, "Hella Good." As usual, Adrian was dressed to the nines.
The band rocked the 2003 Super Bowl halftime show in San Diego. Oh, Sting was there, too.

Just prior to the release of her debut solo album (which went multi-platinum in several countries and earned her six Grammy noms), Gwen got gussied up with the guys at the MTV VMA's.

Two decades later, No Doubt are still as crucial as ever. Something tells us that won't be changing anytime soon.
