21 Guns (speculative title) is an unreleased track originally believed to have been recorded somewhere between 1998 and late 2000 as a piano demo at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. It is not known if the track was re-recorded in the studio as such, but it bares striking similarities in chord progression to the song later released as Contest Song.
