does he even know the definition of a "funk band". Funk has a laid back overall groove to it. Gym class heros dosent have that groove they are closer to a hip hop act.

parliament isn't laid back... they're the biggest traveling party there is. i think in terms of funk being a style and not neccessarily a style of song writing- gym class isn't too far from it. what other band do you listen to that has a hype-man waving a flag?! haha

Yeah, I'd say this guy is a pretty talented writer and actually 'gets it'. When it comes down to it, GHC is cute but entirely forgettable, and to assume that they'll be around longer than their "mellow rap-rock" predecessors like Crazytown, Sugar Ray, or Smashmouth is very wishful thinking.

From the article: "I now totally love the song, chiefly because a) It sounds like Jack is playing the guitar behind his head the entire time; b) It may or may not feature an actual bagpipe breakdown; and c) It sounds like second-rate Yes."

Hilarious. MTV better keep this guy around. This is the direction they need to go in before everyone forgets they exist.

Hahahaha! I haven't been to a Gym Class show in a while, but is there really a guy on stage where all he does is wave a flag around?

If so thats hilarious and pathetic.
