Gym Class Heroes – Everyday’s Forecast

When one hears the words “Gym Class Heroes,” one tends to think of Travis “Travie” McCoy, Fueled By Ramen, and pop songs about Myspace. There was a time before all of these things in which Gym Class Heroes ruled the indie-hip hop game. Their second album The Papercut Chronicles is incredibly thoughtful, sincere, and even a bit harsh at times, but it features a band of extremely talented guitarists, a bassist, and a drummer (no computer beats or samples in this one). Somewhere along the way, they seemed to get a bit lazy. Travis McCoy went from writing songs about luck, loss, love and depression to writing about Myspace, sleeping with your teachers, and taking your clothes off. Complicated beats and creative guitar lines shifted to played out computer beats and less interesting samples and melodies. Check out the song “Everyday’s Forecast” off their 2003 album The Papercut Chronicles below. Read More…

When on a rock kick, he almost sounds like a Jack White impersonator with a Neutral Milk Hotel cover band playing behind him. Check out the odd video for his track “In the Countryside” off his debut album Leaving the Nest below. Read More…
