Featured song: "Turning Up the Radio"

"Turning Up the Radio" (formerly "80s Radio" or "Turn It" is the first song on Death to False Metal. Rivers Cuomo wrote the song in 2008 in collaboration with followers of his YouTube channel, leading to 17 distinct writing credits. Cuomo dubbed this YouTube project "Let's Write a Sawng."

Cuomo first uploaded a YouTube video titled "Let's Write a Sawng (Step 1 and Step 2)" on March 19, 2008, asking fans to help him write something "fun," "poppy," and "tough." Fans uploaded their own videos responding to a variety of prompts from Cuomo, collaboratively creating the song's title, chord progression, vocal melodies, and lyrics. Cuomo uploaded 16 total videos through the course of the project, from March until November.

A user by the name of Taylor Morden eventually became a central collaborator. Morden (whose username was "taylor2d2") received a producer credit on False Metal, in addition to recording guitar, background vocals, and synth that would appear on the song's official release. Morden was based in Portland, Oregon at the time, recording at Death Star Studios.
