Resonances decaying into a pair of particles are an obvious place to look for phenomena beyond the Standard Model. This talk summarises recent results on searches for resonances in pairs of jets, lepton pairs, leptons and missing transverse energy and pairs of photons. Various models models are considered such the Z' and W', the Randall-Sundrum gravitons as well as the ADD large extra dimension scenario, excited quarks, quantum black hole and contact interactions. Results from sqrt(s) = 8 TeV are presented.
