The Known recordings table is a standard for listing different recordings (and variations of recordings) of a song that are known to exist.


A standard Known recordings table is comprised of three templates: a {{Known recordings header}} template, one or more {{Known recordings entry}} templates, and a {{Known recordings footer}} template (in that order).


Performer(s) Title Filename Date of recording Recording location Length Appeared on Notes

The first variable in the Known recordings entry template determines the hexadecimal color of the row. The color of each row indicates whether or not a particular recording is known to exist in fan circulation. Rows for recordings in circulation should utilize a green background (aaffaa), songs that are known to exist but are not in circulation should utilize a red background (ffaaaa), and songs that exist as partial recordings (for example, secondhand recordings) should utilize a yellow background (ffffaa). Recordings that are duplicates of other tracks should utilize a gray background (cccccc). Recordings for which the release status cannot be determined should feature no background (leave the field blank).


The performer or performers on a recording, either individual performers or bands. If the entities do not comprise a band (e.g. Weezer), individual performers should be listed. Each individual entity should be enclosed [[in brackets]].


The title of the iteration of the song (if known). This should be the actual title of the song; it is not meant to reflect the 'Title' field of a file's metadata. The title should only be a hyperlink if it links to a separate article.


The filename of the recording (including extension, such as .mp3). This field is generally only applicable to demos distributed online. Filenames are automatically formatted, but should be enclosed with the <samp> </samp> tags when mentioned in the Notes field. If a filename contains multiple consecutive spaces or characters that interfere with wiki markup, utilize HTML entities (for spaces, use a non-breaking space: &nbsp;).

Date of recording

The date of recording or range of dates in which the song is known to have been recorded, with as much specificity as possible. Specific dates should be rendered as [[Month Day]], [[Year]]. Examples of degrees of specificity:

Recording location

The location of recording, if known. For residences, list the address number and street. For public spaces, list the name of the facility or venue. For locations in the United States, render as [Location], [City], [State (two-letter abbreviation)]. For non-US locations, render as [Facility], [City], [Country]. If the location is a concert location, the text in this field should link to its respective concert article.


The length of the recording. Typically formatted in minutes and seconds (m:ss or, if longer than 9:59, mm:ss). In rare instances where a recording exceeds an hour, render hours, minutes, and seconds (h:mm:ss).

Appeared on

The title of the album(s) or compilation(s) on which the recording appeared. Titles should be links to their respective articles and should be italicized, when applicable. In cases of multiple titles in the same field, list using a bulleted list (put each title on its own line beginning with an asterisk (*). This field can also list the avenue through which a recording was distributed, in cases of non-standard releases (e.g. for the Maladroit demos, field may say "Released on weezer.com." Recordings that initially appeared on a digital compilation (such as the those sold through riverscuomo.com) but were later removed should be rendered with a strikethrough (use <strike> </strike> tags).


Any additional info or clarifications that may help to delineate entries in the table. Info may include (but is not limited to): the upload date of a demo, the take number (i.e. "Take 2" in cases of multiple sequential takes), clarifications about the content of the recording (i.e. "Vocal track only" or "Same as above recording." Entries in yellow, gray, or white should always provide additional context.
