Second Chances was a compilation event organized by the Brony Musician Directory for overlooked music. These tracks that were rejected by EQD but thought to still have value. Many people submitted their tracks made between July to mid-August 2012, there then was a vote which were the best of those batches. These were the favorites as voted by the listeners and eventually put onto a free Bandcamp album. The idea of it as an ongoing event was scrapped as Equestria Daily finally adopted a more lax policy allowing the "Music of the Day" feature and began including a lot more music from the community, meeting the same goal Second Chances opted to achieve.
