Charming and jobless Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) plays bass for garage band Sex Bob-omb, and has just met the girl of his dreams...literally. The only catch to winning Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)? He must defeat her seven evil exes. Genre-smashing filmmaker Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) tells the amazing story of one romantic slacker's quest to power up with love in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, in theaters August 13th.

Enter the Indie Rock vs. the World contest now, where in the spirit of Scott Pilgrim’s battles to win his true love, bands will battle for their honor and love of music. Top 100 artists as voted by the online community will move onto round two, where they'll be reviewed by an industry judging panel. They’ll also be included on a Scott Pilgrim vs. The World content channel on During the month of June, the top 8 bands chosen by the panel will have the chance to make their own music videos with clips and images from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. From there, these bands and their videos will face off in a head-to-head, bracketed "battle of the bands" to determine the Grand Prize winner. Along the way, the top 8 will have great opportunities for exposure and prizes, including having their contest videos featured in stores of a major nationwide retail chain. Plus, top 8 artists will receive an Mbox® 2 Pro Factory recording package from Avid (retail value $899).

At the end of it all, the winning band will get the opportunity to perform live at a talent-filled Scott Pilgrim event this summer, and have their video included as a special feature on the DVD release of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
