Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG UPDATE: No entrants submitted a perfect, word-for-word lyric entry, but the entrant with the fewest mistakes and winner of the grand prize is Cole Baxter! Congrats, Cole! The first runner-up is Zachary Shaiken, while the second runner-up is Scott Taafe.

Honorable Mentions:

* Robert "Hitch" Edwards
(The only entrant to get Verse 1, Line 16 correct -- "Pray that the children are willing to run")

* Luke Boston
(The only entrant to get Verse 1, Line 11 correct -- "Born to be bad, the villainous sons")

* Derek Lipkin
(One of two entrants to get Verse 1, Line 10 correct -- "Gorillas with guns / filling the slums")

* Jake Plummer
(One of two entrants to get Verse 1, Line 10 correct -- "Gorillas with guns / filling the slums")

* Troels Nielsen
(An entrant all the way from Denmark, and was one of only a handful of people who transcribed the entire song)

Analysis: This was a very tricky song to transcribe, and Solomon actually made a slight change to the lyrics of the hook during the song. During the first and third hook, Solomon and Isaiah say "across the line," but during the second hook, they say "I crossed the line." No entrant picked up on this slight adjustment, with roughly half of all submissions selecting either one or the other. Ironically our winner, Cole Baxter, got that line completely wrong (he thought the line was "cross the lines"), but he made the fewest overall mistakes.

Thanks to everyone for who took part in the contest! Now, go download Killer!
