Academy Gym Disco Panic Heroes

It’s all because of Snakes on a Plane and it’s soundtrack. See, if you stick around for the credits at the end of the movie (which DH and I do, as a matter of principle) you get to watch the video for “Snakes On A Plane (Bring It)” which is about the darned catchiest song I’ve heard in a while. So naturally, as soon as I got home I had to know all about the band etc.

This led me to discovering The Academy Is…, and Gym Class Heroes. I already knew about Panic! at the Disco (who are also on the soundtrack), but was pleased to learn they are on the same record label. I really, really want Almost Here, the album by The Academy Is… Their lead singer is one FINE LOOKING man, oh yes he is. And he can really belt out a rock song! Sadly, my venture into Everyday Music with DH tonight did not yield me any CDs by The Academy Is…

However, I did manage to pick up a copy of Gym Class Heroes’ As Cruel as School Children. Yay! I also really want The Papercut Chronicles. YouTube has a channel devoted to bands on their label, and I watched the video for Papercuts – it’s a great song.

It’s interesting, because in general I am not a hip-hop fan. I just DO NOT care for the whole bitches/ho’s/drugs/bling/pimpin’ whatever subject matter of most hip-hop today. Gym Class Heroes seem to be more of the fun, funky, not demeaning-towards-women hip-hop, and I really like their music. They are well worth checking out.
