Californian punk rock band The Offspring released a demo tape for their album Smash, a year prior to the release of the finished album, which went on to become the best-selling independent record of all time. The demo tape remains unreleased to the public, but according to the Wikipedia page of the band's discography[1], it was released in 1993 on a cassette tape. The only evidence to the tape's existence is a tweet from guitarist Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman[2].
