Alright Rooney fans, listen up because you’re not going to want to miss out on this one.  The band kicks it old school in their latest video for  “I Can’t Get Enough” (watch it below)  where they hit the roller rink and groove through the song with some mad skills.  (Where was Rooney when I use to be at the roller rink every weekend?) 

Anyway!  Get this, we have an autographed pair of roller skates from the video shoot to give away to one lucky grand prize winner!   Don’t ask us who wore them, that’s top secret!  Oh!  And  we’ve also got two autographed Rooney CDs for the runner ups, so that’s three chances to win!

Rooney’s new album “Eureka” came out in early June and you already have your copy right?  Good!    To enter the contest all you need to do is email us at with subject ROONEY and tell us what your favorite song on their new album is.  Please include your name, email address and mailing address.

1 grand prize winner and 2 runner up prize winners will be selected at random on August 17th.  Contest is open to US residents only.
