Silent Library was the must-watch game show on MTV from 2009-2011. Contestants competed in hilarious punishment challenges that needed to be complete with total silence. Any excessive noise or laughter from the competitors was marked as an instant fail for that challenge. Finishing a challenge successfully resulted in the contestants earning cash that would be divided among the rest of the group. 

A few seasons of the show featured some of our scene favorites, including All Time Low, Forever The Sickest Kids, the Ready Set and more. Check out some of our favorite Silent Library appearances below!
