"Hella Good" by No Doubt (2001)

 

KICK ASS SONG!!!!

 

Ah yes! I forgot about that one. I actually remember you posting about this song when it first came out, Geoff. I had just joined the Keyboard Corner, and I might not have even started posting yet (I lurked for a few weeks before I posted anything). You were probably posting as "soapbox" then... :D
