No Phun Intended is an album by Tyler Joseph. The release was available on his PureVolume account until 2015. The album was recorded in Joseph's senior year of high school, from 2007–2008, in his basement as a solo project.
The album was never formally released, and was instead handed out on CD to Tyler's friends and family, as well as those who attended some performances in the early years of Twenty One Pilots.
Many copies contained just a few songs from the album, and not the full tracklist.
Due to the obscure nature of the album, and the limited availability of copies, some songs would not surface online for many years. The most recent track to be found is Going Down, which surfaced on July 2nd, 2018.
The track listing is a subject of much debate, as misinformation is often spread about the existence of songs and their placement on the album.
The following is the currently widely accepted track listing.
|3.||Hole in the Ground||Joseph||3:53|
|5.||Taken by Sleep||Joseph||4:12|
|6.||I Want to Know||Joseph||3:18|
|7.||Just Like Yesterday||Joseph||3:29|
|9.||Prove Me Wrong||Joseph||3:39|
|10.||Realize That It's Gone||Joseph||3:24|
|17.||Where Did We Go||Joseph||3:24|
|18.||I'm a Goner|
|19.||Hear Me Now||Joseph||3:27|
- ↑ On some copies, this track is named 'Words'. This caused confusion among many people who thought Words was its own song.
Various lyrics from this album would later be reworked into Twenty One Pilots songs.
One of the songs from the release, Save, was rerecorded and released temporarily as a free download on Twenty One Pilots' official website before it was later pulled.
Much misinformation about the album is commonly spread around the internet. Notable examples include versions of Trees and Goner (supposedly titled I'm[sic] a Goner) being on the album, as well as the existence of a track called Chords.
In regards to the supposed I'm A Goner, this song in face is certain to be a rumor. The song I'm a Goner never existed and we know this as there was a song uploaded by the Twenty One Pilots YouTube channel entitled Goner in 2012. It showcased them showing a sample of Goner that sounds exactly like I'm a goner. The link here:
Another example stems from the fact that some CDs have a track named 'Words' listed. For reasons unknown, some people thought 'Words' and the non-existent 'Chords' may in fact be the same track. In truth, 'Words' is simply another title for Hear Me Now.
