Kill City was originally recorded in 1975 after the disintegration of The Stooges. It was to be used as a demo to give to record labels in hopes of getting Pop a new contract. His vocals were recorded on weekends when he received permission to leave a mental hospital he was staying in at the time for treatment of his long-standing heroin addiction. 

The original 1975 'demo' mix of the album remains unheard, with the exception of three tracks which have been released on various compilations including A Million in Prizes and Original Punks: "Johanna", "Consolation Prizes" and "Kill City". These sound markedly different from the final version of the album, with different guitar parts and, in the case of "Johanna," no saxophone.
