We’ve been in major denial, but the sad fact remains that we only have one episode left this season of Skins US. (C’moooon Season 2!) What are we going to do without our weekly dose of sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll/electro/dubstep/chiptune/chillwave?

If you’re like us, then you’re as big a fan of Skins music as the show itself — what can we say, music supervisor Matt FX does a bang-up job! But to send off the first season of our favorite show, we thought we’d let you step into his shoes for a change — and sweeten the deal with a mega-cool giveaway.

We want your ultimate Skins mix: The songs you love that scream Skins and embody everything you love about the show. All genres and all moods are fair game — Skins music is nothing if not diverse! We’ll choose five finalists, each of whom will take home a copy of the script for Episode 1, “Tony,” signed by the cast. But that’s not all! The winner will be chosen by Danny Flaherty himself. Yes, that’s right — Danny could be listening to YOUR mixtape! Swoon! In addition to receiving a script, the winner will also get this GIGANTIC Skins poster:
