This Week in Billboard Chart History: In 2002, No Doubt Topped Pop Songs With 'Underneath It All'

Plus, remembering feats by Men at Work, Iggy Azalea & Roxette.

Your weekly recap celebrating significant milestones from more than seven decades of Billboard chart history.   

Oct. 29, 1994
The Cranberries began a six-week reign on the Alternative Songs chart with one of their signature songs, "Zombie."   

Oct. 30, 1982
Australia's Men at Work marked a milestone in their American invasion, as their debut single, "Who Can It Be Now?" rose 2-1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Their next single, "Down Under," would also hit No. 1 in early 1983.   

Oct. 31, 1964
The Supremes scored their second Billboard Hot 100 No. 1, "Baby Love," which began a four-week command. It became the second of five consecutive leaders that the legendary group tallied in less than a year's span in 1964-65.   

Nov. 1, 2014
Iggy Azalea made it three No. 1s on Billboard's Pop Songs airplay chart in her first three tries, as "Black Widow," featuring Rita Ora, spun its way to the top. It followed Azalea's "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, and Ariana Grande's "Problem," featuring Azalea.

Nov. 2, 2002
No Doubt notched its third, and most recent, Pop Songs No. 1 with "Underneath It All" (featuring Lady Saw), which would lead for three weeks. The Gwen Stefani-led band first ruled for 10 weeks in 1996-97 with "Don't Speak" and returned to the top for a week earlier in 2002 with "Hey Baby."

Nov. 3, 2001
Nine years after her first appearance, Mary J. Blige celebrated her first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1, as "Family Affair" began a six-week command.

Nov. 4, 1989
After leading earlier in the year with debut hit "The Look," Roxette returned to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with "Listen to Your Heart." What was historically significant about the song? It was the first No. 1 available only as a cassette single, not on a 45-RPM vinyl single.
