Foo Fighters: 'Million Dollar Demo' Surfaces Online
Back in 2002, the Foo Fighters released their fourth studio album, "One By One". What a lot of people don't know is that the band spent four months and a million dollars in a L.A studio in the year prior, working on an album that would never see the light of day. The band ultimately scrapped the "Million Dollar Demo" recordings because they "didn't sound right", recording what would become "One By One" at Dave Grohl's home studio instead. Now, as both KROQ and AntiQuiet are reporting, those demos have started to surface. Two tracks from these sessions, "Have It All" and "Come Back", have found their way onto YouTube. And while Foos fans, will be familiar with the songs from "One By One", the way they sound in these demos (which sound near-finished) is quite different from how they turned out on the final album. As AntiQuiet notes: "It's arguable that the demos above pack a harder punch than the versions that ended up on 'One By One', an album that's widely considered (both by fans and the band) to be the Foos' least-impressive, packed with watered-down filler tracks. One can only wonder whether the rest of the 'Million Dollar Demo' would sound this good." The Foo Fighters will be headlining this year's Reading and Leeds festivals in the UK this summer. Back in March, the band posted a stream of their classic 1995 Reading Festival set as a teaser. The stream is still online at the following location. Whether any more of the "Million Dollar Demos" will appear online remains to be seen. In the meantime, you can enjoy the alternative versions of "Have It All" and "Come Back" below:
