Podcast: What the Hell Happened to Gym Class Heroes?
Seriously, what happened to Gym Class Heroes? Between the band and Travie McCoy himself, they released some of the biggest songs the scene ever had. Bruno Mars even played Travie's solo hit "Billionaire" at the fuckin' Super Bowl.
So where did it go wrong? Even on what would be their last album, The Papercut Chronicles II, Gym Class arguably had the biggest collective moment. Between "Stereo Hearts," "Ass Back Home" and "The Fighter," the band were lighting up the Hot 100 chart. But then it was over.
This week Tyler dives into the story of Gym Class Heroes: the band's story, legacy and where things stand today. There was also a ton of bands who dropped new music last week: Neck Deep, Hands Like Houses, Knuckle Puck, Point North, New Found Glory and Make Them Suffer. The former four groups dropped new singles, while the latter two have new albums out.
