Tekneek's behind-the-scenes video for the making of "Anything Goes"

"Anything Goes" is an unreleased song by Big Time Rush. On April 14, 2011, producer Dan "Tekneek" Wayne published a behind-the-scenes video of himself, BTR member Carlos PenaVega, writer Cody Williams, and producer Charley "Casanova" Greenberg working in the studio.[1] The video contained two brief snippets of a track, which, according to PenaVega, was titled "Anything Goes". The snippets feature PenaVega's vocals as well as Williams' demo vocals.[2] The following day, Tekneek deleted and re-uploaded the video, with the snippets removed.[3][4]

The studio session for "Anything Goes" was one of many held to write and produce tracks for Big Time Rush's then-forthcoming sophomore album, which would eventually develop into Elevate. The song was ultimately not included on the album and remains unreleased.


'Cause you won't know unless you try to step it up
Gotta stop the pressure, never giving up–

Some people think I don't understand (oh no)
When I say know my destiny (I know my destiny)
They tell me I'm just a fool for believing (oh yeah)
But you can't stop–


  • Williams, Greenberg, and Tekneek also wrote the song "Invisible", which was included as the eighth track on Elevate.
