    311 had quite a bit of songs before dropping their first studio album - Music. Many of which made it onto Music (and were reworked in some way) - Welcome, Freak Out, Unity, Nix Hex, Plain, Feels So Good, Do You Right, FTBS. There were only 4 completely new songs - Visit, Paradise, Hydroponic, and My Stoney Baby (which includes my 3 favorites from Music, come to think of it). I've heard Nick say more than once that Music was like a Greatest Hits of their early stuff thus far back then.

    But there were many songs that didn't get refined for Music, 9 of which were later released again on Omaha Sessions. Those 9 got another light put on them, but I wonder what they'd be like if they were released on Music back in 93? I feel like they'd spend much more time on them if so (as opposed to OS). And of course, there are songs that never saw anything past their release in the pre-music era.

    Out of the songs that didn't make it onto, or weren't reworked/enhanced for, Music, which would you have loved to see?

    Here's a list for reference:

    -Be a Crime*
    -CUTM
    -Damn
    -Down South
    -Independence Day
    -Lively Up Yourself*
    -Peaceful Revolution
    -Push It Away
    -Right Now
    -Rollin
    -Slinky
    -Soulsucker
    -Summer of Love
    -This Too Shall Pass
    -Thrive Not Sink*
    -Thriving to the Scene
    -To Be Honest
    -Today My Love

    *Never released

    (Apparently there's more unreleased according to luigikart, but I'm just going by what we know for sure)

    I think for me I would've liked to see Right Now, Soulsucker, Today My Love, To Be Honest, and Summer of Love. Although they did do Summer of Love in 94, later released on archive.

    I always think Slinky is a fan favorite and that is weird to me because it is so similar to daisy cutter.

    Summer of Love, although they did apparently remake it for potential inclusion on Grassroots , which later made it onto Archive.

    And Soulsucker.
