Decade want you to 'Turn Off Your TV':

There were also new releases from blink-182, Microwave, Real Friends, Creeper, Frank Iero and the Patience, Bleachers, He Is Legend, State Champs, Darlia and Black Stone Cherry, while Shaking Chains released a video that changes every time you watch it and Papa Roach released not one but two new songs.
