Green Day - Dookie (demos!!!)

I don't have any pictures or any other info. None of these versions were ever released. And some of them were rerecorded a few years later in 1997! And these were recorded in late 1993 and early 1994. So you get to see what was originally planned for dookie!! So here you go cuz im a nice guy. Below is the story behind it, well thats about it actually

What I have here is the demo tape that Green Day used to shop around for record labels for the album Dookie. It has demo versions of both tracks that were used on the album and tracks that were not. This is a very interesting piece of Green Day history. If you listen to the vocals, it sounds much more like it should be recordings for Kerplunk or 39/Smooth. Enjoy!

TRACK LISTING: (all these songs are demo versions)
1. Having A Blast
2. When I Come Around
3. Longview
4. Burnout
5. Basket case
6. Haushinka (finally released on nimrod in 1997. this is the dookie demo version. Also different lyrics)
7. JAR (you can hear billie joe laughing in background after the song)
8. She
9. Pulling Teeth (longer version)
10. Sassafras Roots
11. Walkin' The Dog (this was never released)
12. Don't Wanna Fall in Love (I believe this was a B-side for insomniac singles)
13. F.O.D.
14. Instrumental (this was never released)
