Michael Knott likes to write new songs for specific concerts while on tour (sometimes before the oncert, some times during the concert). Some of these songs are fully developed, others are very random improv songs. There are probably many more than the ones listed below. If you have any songs to add to this collection, plese email me at email@example.com. Some of these songs, I don't have many details on them, so please let me know if you can provide missing information (or if you can get me a higher quality recording).

Unreleased Songs & RumorsHere are some songs and projects that were never released or are rumored to be out there (these could have been re-recorded later with a different song title - but I have no idea if that could have happened or not). I am looking for copies of any songs off of the first two lists, and verification or denial of anything from the third list. Please E-mail me if you know of how I can get a copy:
- Aunt Bettys - "The Way that it Goes" (left off of Ford Supersonic due to bad source material).
- Strung Gurus - "Suicide By Cop" (live from a set at the Viper Room - July 20, 2000).
- Strung Gurus - "Diva Overdrive" (Mike's manager, Dave Jennison, mentioned it once).
- Strung Gurus - "Whoville" (Mike's manager, Dave Jennison, mentioned it once).
- Andy Warhol
- Annie Get Your Gun
- Losing Angel
- Jet Girl
- The Beggar
- Doing Fine
- Dizzy Daisy
- The Controls
- Sun Shine (new version)
- Joe Strummer - from a web journal entry (no longer on the web, but look here for the michaelknott.com discussion thread about it).
- 30 Amp Fuse - Saturday Night at the Atomic Speedway - a guy named "Michael Knott" is listed as the bass player, but no one in the band photo looks like him. (This website is hard to read. Try highlighting the text to read better.)
- Joy Electric - Robot Rock - uncredited vocal production - from a website called Discogs.
- Joy Electric - The Land Of Misfits EP - uncredited vocal production (some songs from Robot Rock are on this ep - if so, did Knott's work make it here also?).
- Michael Knott & Michael Roe - Someone claimed they once joked around about collaborating. This person also claimed that he/she was given official permission to let it be known that this project would happen. But it never did. From a michaelknott.com discussion board post.
