When I heard the news that No Doubt is back in the recording studio I smiled, hard. Gwen Stefani is indeed a style setter, and her voice has a style all its own, but I liked her music much more with the band than solo. So, I'm excited for that. Then I got reminiscing back to the '90s. Why do I always venture to my teenage years? Oh yes, because it was a time when a song like this — filled with angst, female empowerment, and Fab Gwen — spoke to me, and you, and you, and you. Remember? We will always love Gwen and her curly-q, bleach-blond pony, crop tops, bindis, and unique sporty-punk style. It has evolved, but Gwen continues to transmute her girly power.
