great album but incomplete
QotSA released bonus tracks for Era Vulgaris that depending on release country depended on what track you got. another bonus track released was meant to be shared online and due to a miscalculation on the delivery method, no one ever really knew it existed. The track was released to multiple smaller press outlets and was supposed to be put up one their sites to be shared with fans. but only one or two did. It took a massive amount of sleuthing and raking the corners of the internet to find all of the bonus tracks. One I got with the US pre order of Era Vulgaris, The fun machine took a shit and died.". others, in Europe and Japan were the covers of Billy Idol's "White Wedding" and Elliott Smith "Christian Brothers". A third was released on a single called You know what you did, titled "Era Vulgaris" and features Trent Reznor.
it took weeks to track these bonus tracks down at the time after finding out they all existed. I will try to post what I can when I have a chance. the tracks and their details are featured on the album's wikipedia page.
