(RADIO.COM) – A Green Day demo tape—so rare the band reportedly doesn’t even recall it—has surfaced with three songs recorded between 1992-1993, after their 1991 album, Kerplunk! Reportedly recorded on a boom box, the hissy analog tape features acoustic versions of “J.A.R”, “Having A Blast”, and “Don’t Wanna Fall In Love.” According to a YouTube user who posted the audio (lifted from a bit torrent site) was forgotten so long ago that the band isn’t aware of the tape’s existence.

It was later released on the Shenanigans compilation album.
