Up until a year ago I had no idea there was an alternate version. Its amazing compared to the regular version. Everything much more louder and raw.

Regular version on top, wide mix at the bottom.




For those who had no clue of its existence, check it out. It sounds so fucking awesome.

It's not on Youtube, but my favourite version is from one of the BBC sessions they did. Since it's a radio recording it's perfect quality, and raw as fuck. It's most excellent.

The wide mix version is not from an EP, it's from a German CD Promo for this song. It rocks this version of Prosthetic Head!!

But you mean just the CD, not a download purchase.
I hope this track would be on a Nimrod "Deluxe Anniversary Edition".

No. Why would they? They've never released single edits or radio edits for downloaf

Just you mentioning a metaphorical Nimrod "Deluxe Edtiion" sends shivers down my spine, that would be so epic! Nimrod is my favorite Green Day album and possibly my favorite album ever! If they ever really do release one, I hope they would finally release DUI officially on it, any previous recorded versions of Haushinka if they exist in the GD vaults, and a re-release of the Brain Stew/Jaded b-Side version of Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) so I won't have to buy an overpriced used version of the aforementioned single at some point just for that.

Well, I'm probably an idiot, but I don't hear a difference. Can anybody point out what's so different about them?

The album version of Walking Contradiction has more compression on the vocals. Or at least that's what I think

Both songs (PH and WC) on their alternate versions sound more raw. BTW, talking about a "Nimrod Deluxe Anniversary Edition" possibility, I think it would be like the Australian edition (It has 4 bonus tracks, which now appear on Shenanigans) + PH (Wide Mix) and maybe D.U.I and the covers of Allison and 19th nervous breakdown recorded at that era.

That would be fantastic!!

The sound on the original is much more toned down. On the second version the bass and instruments are much more prominent.
Also the drums sound like they were a one take with just a mic over the kit, much more "live" ish and almost cheaper, but in a good way.

Wasn't there a track called Alfred E Normal or something too that was rcorded?

Brain Stew single is pretty cheap. I got one on amazon for $2

I think we decided that was fake for some reason. Don't remember why. Stick in in the search bar under forums.
