    Which Demo's of songs do you think are better than their album counterparts?

    For me it'd be:

    Drum song. Little things is great but drum song has a certain ambiance to it. It's much more. . Spacious. I love it.

    I love Esaul, but I like APFMH much more. Part Of Me demo is also great.

    It's the same thing, just Chester screams some of Mike's rapping parts.

    I wouldn't say Stick n' Move was a demo for Runaway, but I like them equally... :awesome:

    I like The Untitled better than In The End.

    I prefer the demos for Part of Me and Carousel over the ones that made it onto the EP.

    Ugh.... By demos I meant demos for songs that are on albums. You know, Hybrid Theory Meteora MTM ATS LT, not the Underground stuff. But whatever

    In my opinion the original songs are better then the demos. I just like little parts of some demos which are a little bit better than the original.

    :ditto:

    I prefer all the songs over their demo counterparts. And as once said on LPL by someone: There is a reason they were demos and were changed. They were made better.

    Hmm... this is kind of a tough one. I actually like the alternate lyrics version of Robot Boy better than the album version, if that counts as a demo. I also really like Esaul, but I'm not sure if I like it better than APFMH. I like a lot of the demos that didn't end up having a final version, like Across The Line for example.

    If there was a track named Breaking The Habit, which there isn't, I'd say I like the demo more than the original for sure.

    I can see why people would say that just for the verses, but the choruses in Esaul are pretty crap.

    Instead of cutting down words for his line in the chorus... Mike should have added more! "You'll see it's not meant to be with me for free!"
    Would have been fun to hear, although it makes no sense!
