|Serve The Servants cuts in. Very Ape has a vocal guide of the chorus melody crudely taped over the end.|
These two acoustic demos received posthumous release on the 2004 With The Lights Out box-set. Although the box-set booklet credits both demos as having been recorded in 1993, this label is widely disputed among collectors.
The lyrical content of the Serve The Servants demo seems more light-hearted and less autobiographical than that recorded at Pachyderm Recording Studio, February 12–26, 1993.
Both the lyrics and arrangement of the Very Ape demo appear to significantly pre-date that recorded at BMG Ariola Ltda., January 19–21, 1993; Cobain inelegantly cuts in mid-song with a vocal guide of the chorus melody.
Despite appearing alongside each other on the box-set, it is unclear whether these home demos were in fact recorded together.
