Due to the extreme excitement generated by the announcement of the Smashing Pumpkins Record Club – or SPRC – and the “Drown” demo download, you’ll be happy to hear that there’s a secret download of an early instrumental demo of “Geek U.S.A.” released by the Smashing Pumpkins Record Club entitled “Suicide Kiss.” This demo has a longer guitar solo than the later version which Guitar World ranked as the 54th best of all time. At one point, Billy Corgan thought about dropping the solo from the song altogether. Download the song here, by clicking on the speaker all the way to the left of the screen about halfway down the page. Once clicked, the download should begin automatically.
