We Want YOU! The Bayonets New Newsletter

Hello To Our Friends Everywhere~

The Bayonets have a really cool idea: We would like you to help us make the upcoming video for our next single from our new album, Crash Boom Bang! by sending us your own cool video clips.
That’s right, We Want YOU!

We Want YOU! The Bayonets New Newsletter

The next song we’ll be releasing from our full length album (available now) is “So Easy Rider”, track 2 from our album, Crash Boom Bang! The theme of the video will be about pets having fun. The song is about a young guy asking his girl to leave their small town behind with him and ride off into the future together on his motorcycle.

Let’s put a fun twist to it.

What We Want:


We would like you to submit your own clips of your pets (or animals you know) “riding”, whether it be riding ‘shotgun’ in a convertible with the wind in it’s fur, on the back of another pet, on a surfboard, in a bicycle basket, in the sidecar of a motorcycle or any other type of “riding” action you can capture. You get the idea ... we will then edit and arrange your clips to fit our song. The video will be released WITH the single at the end of the month on YouTube and other video outlets. By submitting clips, you will be agreeing to this video use and releasing your original work for public use to The Bayonets.

Enclosed are the lyrics, so you can go as deep into the song’s narrative you like ... or simply ignore the words altogether.

So Easy Rider

Hey girl
I’m a time bomb ticking’
livin’ in a matchbox
can’t stand sitting’

Hey girl
did you ever get that feelin’
there’s somethin’ better
that you ain’t seein’

Shout if you wanna shout
if you wanna get out
say you wanna go right now

I believe you and me
we could be
So Easy Rider
Wild and free
you and me
So Easy Rider

Hey girl it only takes a minute
paint yourself a new world
and jump right in it

Hey girl
Got the chariot running’
are you goin my way
tell me that you’re comin’

Shout if you wanna shout
are you in or are you out
do you wanna go right now

I believe you and me
we could be
So Easy Rider
Wild and free
you and me
So Easy Rider

Time is ours to waste
I’ll take you to a place
where no one knows your face
We gotta get outta town
before it’s too late
step on the gas with the wind in your face
you say you want something’ better
you can ride along, come on

I believe you and me
we could be
So Easy Rider
Wild and free
you and me
So Easy Rider
High in the sky, Superfly
So Easy Rider

What We Need:

  • We need these to be free of copyright, in other words, original content, not other people’s videos from YouTube.
  • Each video should be filmed in highest possible resolution, HD if possible, with no filters added to each clip. Your smartphone HD setting is fine.
  • Video clips should be no longer than 1 minute each but you can send a few, if substantially different from each other.
  • Animals should be filmed doing things they enjoy, and not forced to do anything dangerous or unpleasant for them.
  • We don’t encourage dressing your pets up, but will accept those choices as well.
  • Videos should be fun and silly, to be juxtaposed against our dark themed lyric.
  • Video clips must be submitted by Aug 25th.
  • Here is the link to a very simple drag and drop page on our Tempo Entertainment Hightail account, very user friendly.
