Nothing Ever Changes is a demo cassette by The Smashing Pumpkins, released prior to Jimmy Chamberlin and D'arcy Wretzky joining the band. Allegedly three versions of artwork for Nothing Ever Changes were created. The single copy known to exist outside the band's archive has a cover featuring a nun with bleeding hands and eyes. Artwork mock-ups for the other two covers are known to exist, but descriptions of the actual art have not emerged. The number of tapes created is unknown, but it is very likely an extremely small number.

Although a tape of the four-song configuration listed below exists, the original Nothing Ever Changes was about 60 minutes in length and was Corgan's first attempt at a full-length album.
