Demo versions

Apart from the officially released English versions, in the early 1990s, B'z recorded several English demos for previously released Japanese songs. None of them were ever officially released and are available only in leaked form. Many of the demos consist of only one chorus and one verse that are repeated to fill the length of the song.

The leaked demos include:

In addition to those mentioned above, English demos to songs from the Brotherhood sessions, including "ONE", can be heard in the 1999 documentary The true meaning of "Brotherhood"?. None of these English versions ever made their way to the public in any other form.
