Unreleased Studio Versions
In January of 2002, Mindless Self Indulgence were supposed to release a studio album on Elektra Records.
But due to many issues with Elektra, (the most notable being an issue with Missy Elliot) MSI left Elektra and the album was never released.
This lead to MSI self-releasing Alienating Our Audience in 2002 instead.
The track list is unknown but Thank God, and 2 Hookers and an Eightball were confirmed and most of the unreleased songs that are featured on Alienating Our Audience were most likely on the album.
There were also other live tracks played at the time like Animal
, and Bullshit
, that were likely to have been on the album, both of these songs were re-recorded on later albums.
The tracks Revenge
, and 2 Hookers
, were re-recorded on later albums as well.
