I may be wrong but I'm fairly certain it was never offically released as a bonus track. It didn't appear on any version of the album and I'm pretty damn sure it didn't appear as a b-side to any single which was released.

It was planned to be included on the origional tracklisting of Have a Nice Day. Thankfully it leaked out unoffically.

Default Pre-release

It was released on the 2004 pre-release.

www.wikipedia.org says:
Various tracks from the pre-released album have been leaked onto the Internet and copies of the entire pre-release album exist in circulation amongst traders. One notable track removed from the final Have A Nice Day album is "Nothing". Many fans consider this song to be one of the best songs the band have ever written during the 2000s. It was supposedly cut from the album due to its similarity to "I Am", which remained on the album. American Idol 2005 runner-up Bo Bice later re-recorded the song, entitled "Nothing Without You", for his debut album, The Real Thing.

But, don't know if you can trust Wikipedia...

Not really a demo. The album was supposedly finished and copies of it were mailed or given to various people in the industry. Depending on which story you believe, Jon was told to redo the album or Jon decided himself that the album needed more work. Additional songs were written and some songs from the first cut of the album were deleted. Nothing was one of those deleted songs. Since several people in the industry had the "first edition" of HAND, eventually the first try leaked out.

Chances are that Paragon could add more to this story, but those are the bare bones facts.

Obviously Nothing is better than the majority of tracks on Have A Nice Day. Great decision from Jon, there...
