Leonard Arnold - There's No Secrets This Year
Don't know whether to do a love letter to your favourite band or to the 80s? Just do both! That's what I did, at least, with this 80s inspired verson of There's No Secrets This Year, from the album Swoon. I made this little banger from the ground up, playing every single instrument myself, and of course producing entirely myself, too. If only I'd discovered the competition sooner, I would've made a suitably '80s' music video! Luckily I had plenty of time to create some animated art to accompany the track, in lieu of said video. And you'd better believe it animates at the same BPM as the track! Satisfying! Thanks so much to School of Rock and SSPU for this awesome opportunity. You guys rock. Love from Leonard Arnold

Well Thought Out Twinkles by Silversun Pickups (Full Cover)
Here I play one of my fave SSPU songs, using my Schecter guitar (Marshall Jackhammer Overdrive/Distortion pedal, Boss DD-3 Delay pedal, VOX amp), my Ibanez Soundgear bass (Mark amp), Guitar Center’s drums, and a friend’s keyboard (couldn’t find the power cable for mine at home). And also, featuring my vocals
Panic Switch- Silversun Pickups Cover (Will Beeman-Full Band)
Hi! My name is Will Beeman, and I'm a 17 year old guitarist/singer that lives in Nashville, TN (that also plays bass and drums), and I'm a big fan of Silversun Pickups! When you guys played Nashville at the Ascend Amphitheater with Third Eye Blind this summer (June 15th), I was actually there and played the VIP lounge before and after you guys! It didn't say anywhere in the contest description that I couldn't cover all instruments, so I hope this okay! And I hope you guys like it!

'At Last the Night' Covers - Silversun Pickups - Latchkey Kids
Our band, At Last the Night's cover of 'Latchkey Kids'. This is a complete recreation of the fun/dancy song, built from the ground up. I (Dylan) happened to be out of town during the duration of the contest, so I picked up a cheap guitar from craigslist and used iPhone Earbud microphone to record guitar and vocal tracks in Logic Pro. Drums and Synth were also recreated using MIDI and Virtual Instruments in Logic, and Nick A. provided the punchy bass track. Thank you for this incredible opportunity! Hope you enjoy! -Dylan Cox
