Rock It

Release date: 8th December 2004

The first item from Phase 2, released on the band’s official website in 2004 to hype up Demon Days.

The song itself wasn’t available in any audio format until D-Sides released; three years later.

Feel Good Inc.

Release date: 25th March 2005

DARE

On the DVD for The Singles Collection 2001-2011, the final shot was edited to change the posters in Murdoc’s Winnebago.

Intro

Last Living Souls

Kids with Guns

November Has Come

All Alone

White Light

Fire Coming Out of the Monkey’s Head

Don’t Get Lost In Heaven

Hong Kong

This visual contains archive footage showing Ibrahim Ferrer from when he was recording the track for Gorillaz. This portion of the Demon Days Live concerts was added in memory of him.


LIVE PERFORMANCES

Feel Up (Grammy Awards 2006)

This performance at the 2006 Grammys marked the second of two Feel Good Inc. hologram performances during Phase 2, both using the same holograms. However, the Grammy performance added Madonna to the visuals, transitioning the performance into her single, Hung Up. This video only contains the raw hologram section of the performance.

Dirty Harry (BRIT Awards 2006)

This BRIT Awards performance had a giant screen at the back of the stage displaying these visuals, with a full choir of children & an orchestra in front.


IDENTS

Several variations of these idents were made for TV, some specifying that the following music videos were being shown exclusively; while others mention the channels they were designed to be broadcast on.

Hip Hop Machine

Mexican Jailer

Despite being the most inappropriate ident, this one funnily had several alternate versions mentioning the channels they were specifically made to air on; including MTV, Fox Kids, The Box, Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, VH1 & several others.

Capsule Hotel


G BITES

This G Bite was made to promote the Search for a Star contest; shorter edits of this G Bite also exist.
