Kanal, born and raised in England until he was about eleven, played the saxophone before the bass.
The first song Young learned to drum along with was "The Wild Flower" by The Cult.
Dumont was a heavy metal guitarist in his sister's band, Rising, before joining No Doubt.
The first record that Kanal bought with his own money was Men at Work's Business As Usual. Now he is a huge Prince fan.
Before hitting it big, all the members had day jobs. Gwen Stefani and Kanal were salespeople in the same department store, Young waited tables at a steakhouse, and Dumont ran a music equipment rental business.
Original No Doubt frontman John Spence committed suicide on December 21, 1987. They took their name from one of his favorite sayings.
All members are college-educated. Dumont majored in music, Gwen Stefani majored in art, and Young and Kanal in psychology.
Original keyboardist Eric Stefani, in addition to being Gwen's older brother, left the band before the release of Tragic Kingdom to be an animator on The Simpsons.
Dumont, who lives in Southern California with the rest of the band, is an avid surfer.
For a short time in the early 1990s, Young took drumming classes at Fullerton Junior College in California.
Kanal and Stefani were a couple for 8 years. Gwen was so in love with him, she used to drive across town when she was in high school just to look at him. (thanks, Tristan - Seattle, WA)
Stefani married Gavin Rossdale of Bush in 2002. They pair met when No Doubt was opening for Bush on their 1995 tour. They had three children together, but Stefani filed for divorce on August 3, 2015, citing "irreconcilable differences."
Adrian Young was a fan before becoming a member. He also lied to help get into the band, when they were auditioning him he told them he had been playing drums for eight years, when he had been playing for only a year and a half. (thanks, Dan - West Hartford, CT)
Gwen Stefani's nickname is Sunshine.
Stefani is dyslexic. She repeated a year of school high. (thanks, Tristan - Seattle, WA)
Gwen joined her high school swim team because she was chubby. Since she swam so much, she was also nicknamed "frog."
Gwen had a dog named Magan, who's nickname was little Lamb, which is were Gwen's clothing line name came from. Gwen would die her dog's hair to mach her own. (thanks, Alexis - Pittstown, NJ, for above 2)
Before their breakthrough album Tragic Kingdom was released, they were on the first Warped tour in 1995. Sublime and L7 were also on that tour.
