"Stand" and Deliver" is the a newly recorded cover No Doubt gave to all of the fans who bought tickets via the presale (and effectively giving Ticketmaster the finger). I was one of the sheeple that bought No Doubt tickets early, by the way. "Stand and Deliver" was recorded FOR Gossip Girl, because the mp3 came tagged with "From the television show Gossip Girl." So make sure to catch No Doubt perform the Adam and the Ants cover on Gossip Girl on its season finale in May.
I heard this cover wasn't very good. ALL LIES! It's fantastic. It does sound like No Doubt are returning to their Orange County roots with "Stand and Deliver" — and maybe their entire new album, who knows. "Stand and Deliver" would fit perfectly in their self titled album. It also would not be out of place in Tragic Kingdom. This is a good look No Doubt. Though I still think going in the "It's My Life" direction would be a bit more fun. Listen to "Stand and Deliver" after the jump.
