Papercut Chronicles by Gym Class Heroes

Recent internet pictures of his penis notwithstanding, one must grudgingly admit that Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz has given the world some great things - Panic! At The Disco, and now, Gym Class Heroes, four kids from New York whose identity crisis as to whether they want to play to emo audiences, hip-hop crowds or some amalgam in between, makes for intriguing listening. Case in point: ‘Taxi Driver‘, a spectaculariy daft track that sees MC Schelprok namecheck a slew of third generation emo bands (including Fall Out Boy). As Petey puts it. “they're too rock for hip-hop, too hip-hop for rock".
