#15 Gym Class Heroes - The Papercut Chronicles
I saw these guys open for Fall Out Boy twice. The first time I had no idea who they were and was totally not expecting a rap act that uses instruments. They pull it off very well. The lyrics are actually somewhat intelligent which is a breath of fresh air in the rap department (thanks also to Kanye West). It is also nice to listen to a “rap” album that doesn’t have skits every other song. This album uses a tight rhythm section, a talented guitarist and an intelligent and gifted lyricist to create something unique.
