On June 18th, OTTO’s 4th birthday, we revealed the three winners of the OTTO Rocks! record cover mash-up contest. (In case you missed it, you can view them here.)
Each of the 42 entries were pretty wonderful, and the caliber of the work was beyond anything we could have imagined.
Because there were so many deserving entries, we wanted to highlight several honorable mentions — entries that were very close to making it to the final three. And because so many of you appreciated seeing the winning entries alongside the covers on which they were based, we wanted to do the same for these.
Thanks again to all of our contestants. It was a great birthday present.

Drew Donley – based on Van Halen’s 1984
Jeff Swanson – Based on The Beastie Boys’ License To Ill
