@Todd these are great, thank you so much for sharing, the quality is amazing.  I’m with @pacejunkie punk re the laugh in JAR but I also really Haushinka and this is so much slower to begin.

Absolutely brilliant and top notch sound quality! Massive thanks for that! I have to say, considering what I've heard over the years, these do seem like quite well-progressed demos, as they already appear correctly panned, mostly cleanly recorded and also mixed and mastered quite similarly to the final tracks (at least in the case of the Dookie songs). Interestingly, the bass in WICA actually appears slightly more pronounced than in the original, probably due to a slightly brighter tone.

Here it is! :D 

The tracklist of the demo is as follows:
01 - When I Come Around
02 - Basket Case
03 - Longview
04 - Burnout
05 - Haushinka
06 - J.A.R. (Jason Andrew Relva)
07 - Having a Blast
08 - Monk's Keys

MP3 and FLAC downloads can be found here
Enjoy!

Thank you so much man this is great! If I recall correctly, the instrumental "metal" track used to be called Rox Yer Ass, so why is it now labelled as Monk's Keys? Does it even have an official name?

Good question! Ben Mattick, who was Green Day's tour manager for Dookie, answered a lot of questions about this demo session for me, since he was present for the recording. He said the real name of the song was Monk's Keys, and it was co-written with the band Sleep. That's why I've been referring to it as such! I think it's a much better title than "Rox Yer Ass", it feels a lot more like a Green Day title.
