It differs from the 'Rock Version' used in the single music video. The European version features "Resuscitation" (Crow, Trott) as twelfth track; the Japanese version contains the bonus tracks "Carolina" & "Resuscitation" (Crow, Trott). The "Australian Tour Edition" of the album (released in 1999) also contains "Resuscitation", "Sweet Child o' Mine," as well as a bonus CD containing six songs recorded live at the Church of the Holy Trinity at Toronto, Canada on November 13, 1998:
