Demolicious is a compilation album by the American punk rock band Green Day. It was released on Record Store Day (April 19, 2014). It is a collection of demo versions of songs from their ¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré! album trilogy. The album also includes the previously unreleased "State of Shock" and an acoustic version of "Stay the Night". It was released on double vinyl, CD, and cassette tape.[2] The cover art was designed by comic book artist Tom Neely with Kristina Collantes.[3]

Theme and composition[edit]

Mike Dirnt published the album's cover on his official Instagram account, stating "this is how ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! would have sounded if we were still on Lookout Records".[4]

AllMusic 3.5/5 stars[5]

Fred Thomas at AllMusic notes that the album is much more raw and "more exciting" than the album trilogy that the songs came from. He goes on to state "Though more stripped-down and loose than usual album fare, the tunes on Demolicious end up feeling more direct".[5] Andrew Gold of Sputnikmusic states "If you enjoyed the trilogy, Demolicious provides a welcome change of pace from the squeaky clean production of the studio albums (that means no treble-heavy ear-piercingly sharp guitars from ¡Uno!)." However, Gold criticizes that there's musically not enough differences from the ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! trilogy.[6]
