Stone Temple Pilots share previously unreleased “Sex Type Thing” demo: Stream

on July 27, 2017, 11:50am

Yesterday, Stone Temple Pilots announced plans to release a special 25th anniversary of their debut album, Core. Due out September 29th via Rhino, the remastered deluxe reissue promises more than two hours of unreleased demos and live performances and other bonus goodies such as a hardcover book featuring never-before-seen photos.

Now, less than a day later, the reissue is being previewed with a demo of “Sex Type Thing”, Core’s lead track and the alt-rock outfit’s first official single. Though it eventually placed within Billboard’s Top 25 Album Rock Tracks list, the song was not without its detractors, who criticized its controversial lyrics about rape. Late frontman Scott Weiland defended the track, maintaining that it was actually anti-rape, previously saying, “This song is really not about sex at all. It’s about control, violence and abuse of power.”

Hear the demo recording below.
