The Immortal Bard once wrote, “If music be the food of love, play on!” but in the cases of these ten amazing bands, love was the fuel behind the music. In each of these 10 bands, at least 2 (if not all) of the bandmates were involved with each other and that off stage romance inspired an amazing song. For some of the couples on our list, their tumultuous break ups inspired classic hit songs, while for others, their true love gave way to sweet, soulful ballads. The course of true love ne’er did run smooth, but it truly inspired these 10 songs.
The Band: No Doubt
The Song: “Don’t Speak”
The Romance: No Doubt’s lead singer Gwen Stefani and bassist Tony Kanal had been together for seven years when they broke up. Stefani was devastated and put her feelings down in this ballad which she co-wrote with her brother and (then) bandmate, Eric Stefani.
