The Detroit electro rock group Flashclash is runner-up in a national video competition, but still comes out with a winner's prize.
The Polk audio company's Listen to the Music competition asked entrants from 10 U.S. cities to submit a cover of the Doobie Brothers' 1972 hit of the same name. The leading vote-getter was the Penn State University marching band, which takes home a $20,000 donation to a charity of its choice and a pair of Polk Nue Era headphones for each of the band's 400 members. Flashclash was the runner-up by about 500 votes but will fulfill the other part of the grand prize -- opening for John Legend on Jan. at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Flashclash took the gig when the Penn State band deferred.
Flashclash's video treatment of the song can be found on YouTube.
