Fall Out Boy fans are getting a chance to easily check out some of the band’s earliest material as a handful of their demos from 2001 are surfacing on YouTube.
Three songs from their self-titled demo ripped from a cassette version of the release are cropping up giving fans an easy to find way of checking out some FOB history.
Prior to their debut record, Take This to Your Grave, the band recorded a three-song demo.
According to Discogs, the release was also printed as a CD and 7-inch vinyl on top of the cassette.
One noticeable difference is the third track is titled “A Nice Myth” on the YouTube clips. The vinyl and CD versions have the third song listed as “Moving Pictures” which the author of the videos acknowledges.
“This track is unique to the cassette variant of this release. On the CD and Vinyl release track 3 is instead “Moving Pictures”. Although I cannot confirm if that is an early recording or not as of yet.”
The first two tracks ended up on their 2003 EP Fall Out Boy’s Evening Out with Your Girlfriend which also features “Moving Pictures.”
You can check out the demos below.
Earlier this month, fans were hit with the news that all of the From Under The Cork Tree era music videos were not on YouTube anymore.
This isn’t the first time this has happened with Fall Out Boy as the band’s videos for the same three songs were yanked from their channel in August 2018.
Luckily, just a few days later they ended up resurfacing but no answer ever came out of why they were taken down in the first place.
Either way, fans can happily enjoy all of the Fall Out Boy they want over on YouTube now.
