Billy's Gravity Demos I is a bootleg by The Smashing Pumpkins. It contains 29 songs from the 1994 Gravity Studios sessions. It was given to a fan by Billy Corgan on April 15, 2000 after a Aragon Ballroom concert in Chicago. The fan was instructed to circulate it online. Originally Corgan was going to provide what became The Friends & Enemies of Modern Music, but reportedly he screwed up the tape and this collection is what was produced instead.[1]

The bootleg is known for its sound quality and inclusion of songs that later formed "Pastichio Medley". All recordings are electric instrumentals except for "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" which had a raw vocal track.[1]
