A 30-year-old rare live recording of Green Day song ‘Stay’ has been unearthed
A bootleg recording of an unreleased and naturally very early Green Day track ‘Stay’ has been shared online. The song even pre-dates their debut album ’39/Smooth’, and was recorded at the band’s gig for Killdozer at Berkeley Square on July 22, 1989.
Following the celebration of 25 years of their seminal album Dookie, Green Day fans are probably feeling a little spoiled with rare material, but will still gladly take the previously unreleased track to the bank with them.
Green Day aficionados will however maybe know the song by a different name. It was widely claimed to be called ‘World v World’ and allegedly written for an independent film helmed by Billie Joe’s brother.
Although the song starts off as more of a ballad it builds and builds into a more familiar Green Day sound. What we thin is the most notable part is Billie Joe Armstrong’s vocal remains almost exactly the same ot this day.
